What are the greatest differences?
Please use only materials that are provided to answering two essay questions below. This is a Crime and violence course. Essay questions 1 & 2 1.)A friend is involved in a relationship with someone you suspect will be abusive. In a casual discussion with your friend, you try to explain to him/her how relationships which may not appear abusive initially may become so. You subtly try to point out the basic characteristics of abusive relationships, and note how they are likely to grow worse. In this essay, describe what you would tell your friend. Identify at least three different patterns which have been identified. 2). Compare what we know about individuals who abuse elder relatives and those who abuse children. What are the greatest similarities? What are the greatest differences? Then consider what we know about those children and elders who are most likely to be abused. Again – what are the greatest similarities and differences? Finally, what can these factors tell us about how we may be able to reduce abuse in our society?
