Family Abuse and Violence presents a new perspective for studying inter- and intragenerational forms of family abuse and violence. The framework integrates existing theories and guides an interpretation of empirical data to study socially deviant or criminal problems that occur within families. It is a text for: undergraduate students in a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year course in social problems, family abuse and violence, family and gender, or community problems; or for graduate students in MS or PhD programs in sociology, psychology, child and family studies.
This is a new text that provides a clear, concise summary of current issues in the field of child abuse and neglect.
The text describes the indicators of child abuse or neglect (including emotional neglect); sets out the major theories of child abuse and neglect; explores the various professional roles of the multidisciplinary team that often addresses abuse or neglect; and walks through the interview and evaluation process.
The authors also describe treatment issues, address intervention for children and families, provide examples of program evaluation methods, and describe prevention and policy issues. The text integrates theory, research, and practice, providing case examples to help students integrate all three.
Often people would look at me and say that I am a strong woman. That may be true, but what people don't know is that while strength, for the most part, defines a person's character, mine came from a lot of physical pain, which I endured at a very young age. My Strength Comes From Abuse is my journey from childhood victim to the strong Survivor you see today...
Humanity has become lazy and complacent with their position at the top of the food chain. They are used to ruling the world but when a gene-altering asteroid strike triggers the next stage of human evolution, all that is thrown into doubt. All over the world, people have changed. They've become the Vanir, immensely powerful beings with little morality. While few in number, some possess unbelievable powers and abilities. Alex has been kicked around by an abusive stepmother his entire life but fate has far greater things planned for him. As his mind lowers itself to the swirling maelstrom of brutality the world has descended to, he migrates towards an unenviable choice; human or Vanir, morality or power? The entire human world is against him in his struggle and he must flee for his life if he is to survive long enough to realise who he is and what he can do. The forthcoming war will decide upon life or death for millions and the mighty Fenrir will change everything. Horrific crimes have been committed on both sides, there is no clearly defined good or evil any more. Both sides have their weapons, some are more humane than others and both are hell-bent on the annihilation of the other as only one species can rule the war-torn world. The Vanir are rising and humanity is not content to sit by and watch their empire collapse at the hands of these new beings. If you enter this dystopian world of brutality, strength and dark vengeance the world will never be the same again.
Economic theory indicates that financial markets play a prominent role to the efficient allocation of resources in the modern world. Financial markets can fulfil this role if they enjoy the confidence of investors and are free of abuse. The financial frauds associated with the collapse of Enron and the major crises in world leading corporations such as WorldCom, Adelphia, Tyco, and the 'Wall Street financial scandals' have shown that fraud, manipulation, and insider dealing retain a catastrophic presence in modern financial markets. Proper deterrence of market abuse is necessary not only for the effective operation of modern financial markets, but also for regaining investor confidence. This book analyses the mechanics and regulation of two of the most harmful market practices in the modern financial world: insider dealing and market manipulation, which together comprise the offence of market abuse. Avgouleas examines the UK and EC regimes from an interdisciplinary perspective, also making extensive and critical use of US case law. He emphasizes the economic analysis of anti-fraud manipulation regulations and their effects upon market welfare and explores the possible deterrent benefits of civil law remedies.
