Ford Hickson Combining sex and drugs shares many features with other voluntary high risk activities that involve specialist skills and intense sensations. We examined factors associated with GHB use, its relationship to sexual risk behaviour, and the contexts, consequences, and motivations for its use. Use of gamma-hydroxybutyrate to enhance sexual experiences often occurred in the context of sexual risk behaviour and frequent use was associated with overdose.

Preventing violence against girls and young women is understudied in poor countries. Abstract This systematic review of reviews synthesizes evidence on the impact of interventions to prevent violence against adolescent girls and young women 10—24 years VAWG in low- and middle-income countries LMICs. Theories of women’s empowerment and the social ecology of multifaceted violence frame the review. Of 35 reviews identified between June 7 and July 20, , 18 were non-duplicate systematic reviews of medium-to-high quality.
Half of these 18 reviews focused on interventions to prevent IPV. Only four focused on adolescents, of which three focused on child marriage and one compared findings across early and late adolescence. From these 18 reviews and the supplemental systematic review of intervention studies, data were extracted on 34 experimental or quasi-experimental intervention studies describing 28 interventions.

Journal Articles The approach to method and item development within the network explicitly recognizes not only the desire to serve a monitoring function, but also the requirement that the data can be analysed from a range of theoretical perspectives. There has been a substantial increase in the publication of scientific peer-reviewed papers which illustrate the variety of functions the HBSC data set can serve.

This study explored the relationship between gender and co-occurring substance abuse and mental health conditions among a sample of consumers of behavioral health services in the Southwest U. Women were almost seven times more likely than men in this sample to have a diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder in conjunction with substance abuse. Women were also significantly more likely to experience anxiety and mood disorders and to have been married. Implications of these findings for social work practice are suggested.

The “dark triad” of three personality traits: Sometimes called “dark personality. Psychopathy is a psychological condition in which the individual shows a profound lack of empathy for the feelings of others, a willingness to engage in immoral and antisocial behavior for short-term gains, and extreme egocentricity. Psychopaths do not have the fear response experienced by most of us to the potential negative consequences of criminal or risky behavior and are relatively insensitive to punishment.
They tend not to be deterred from their self-serving behaviors by criminal or social penalties. In conjunction with their unfeeling and incessant drive to take care of themselves, psychopaths are predators, and anyone who can feed their need at the moment is potential prey. Psychopaths are at increased risk of engaging in both reactive and instrumental aggression. Instrumental aggression sometimes called proactive or predatory aggression is planned, controlled, and purposeful, and is used for a particular aim—for example, to get drugs or sex, or just to establish dominance.
The primary goal is not necessarily to injure others but simply to obtain the desired outcome. This isn’t aggression that arises from an emotional reaction; it’s the calculated use of aggression as a tool. Reactive aggression, on the other hand, is much more impulsive and emotion driven and arises from a perceived threat or attack or uncontrolled anger. The two types of aggression, instrumental and reactive, are not mutually exclusive.

Adolescence (from Latin adolescere, meaning ‘to grow up’) is a transitional stage of physical and psychological development that generally occurs during the period from puberty to legal adulthood (age of majority). Adolescence is usually associated with the teenage years, but its physical, psychological or cultural expressions may begin earlier and end later.
Marriageable age and Teen marriage Sexual conduct between adults and adolescents younger than the local age of consent is illegal, and in some Islamic countries any kind of sexual activity outside marriage is prohibited. In many jurisdictions, sexual intercourse between adolescents with a close age difference is not prohibited. Around the world, the average age-of-consent is 16,  but this varies from being age 12 in Angola , age 16 in Spain and Canada , and age in the United States.
In some jurisdictions, the age-of-consent for homosexual acts may be different from that for heterosexual acts. The age-of-consent in a particular jurisdiction is typically the same as the age of majority or several years younger. The age at which one can legally marry is also sometimes different from the legal age-of-consent. Sexual relations with a person under the age-of-consent are generally a criminal offense in the jurisdiction in which the act was committed, with punishments ranging from token fines to life imprisonment.
Many different terms exist for the charges laid and include statutory rape , illegal carnal knowledge , or corruption of a minor. In some cases, sexual activity with someone above the legal age-of-consent but beneath the age of majority can be punishable under laws against contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Theoretical Perspectives on Gendered Sexuality Social constructionist perspective[ edit ] The social constructionist perspective see social constructionism for a general definition on adolescent sexuality examines how power, culture, meaning and gender interact to affect the sexualities of adolescents.
Those who believe in the social constructionist perspective state that the current meanings most people in our society tie to female and male sexuality are actually a social construction to keep heterosexual and privileged people in power. Because they are girls, they believe they ought to engage in sexual behavior in order to please their boyfriends. It is specifically interested in how society’s gender norms affect adolescent development, especially for girls.
The fact that many adolescent girls are showing remarkable strength, resiliency, and “hardiness” during the stressful time of adolescence needs to be explored. Instead of focusing on the storm and stress of adolescence, a new understanding of adolescent girls that affirms their strength and resilience needs to be developed.
Although the current day risks and stresses in the lives of adolescent girls must be understood, they should not be the defining factors in discussions of adolescent girls.

Honor Our Voices is a unique online learning module providing you with the opportunity to see domestic violence through the eyes and voices of children. The purpose of this learning module is to create a multi-pronged response to increase the awareness and sensitivity of shelter advocates and other social service providers to the needs of children and suggest promising ways of enhancing services for children exposed to domestic violence.
Included in this learning module is a downloadable guide for practice and a digital library of short audio programs that highlight specific promising practices through the voices of children. We would like to thank the adult survivors of childhood exposure who contributed both through an online survey and as participants in our National Roundtable. She shared both her expertise and personal experiences throughout the development of these materials.
Their stories enriched the Roundtable discussions and were extremely helpful in the development of this project. We would also like to thank the Avon Foundation for Women for their support of this project. In particular, we owe a debt of gratitude to Christine Jaworsky, Manager of Grants and Programs at the Foundation, who believed in this project from the start and helped us both to refine our concept and widely distribute these results.
In addition, we would like to thank all of the National Roundtable participants who volunteered their time and contributed their knowledge and expertise to help identify key issues and promising practices in working with children exposed to domestic violence. We greatly appreciate the time they took from their busy schedules to attend the Roundtable in December and their continuing review and feedback throughout the entire project.
