The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is a part of the Department of Health and Human Services. It is most widely known for its study and tracking of diseases. It actually does much more than that. One category of information available from the CDC includes injury, violence and safety. The CDC in conjunction with the World Health Organization (WHO) collects data on violence that is directly related to the fields of criminal justice and criminology. The CDC is often overlooked as a source of information in the study of criminology, but it has a lot of relevant information. For this report I will use information from the World Report on Violence and Health obtained from the CDC website to discuss youth violence and sexual violence. I will …show more content…
32). Other factors include psychological and behavioral characteristics like hyperactivity, impulsiveness, risk taking behavior, poor concentration and low IQ. Relationship issues with family members such as violence in the home, low family cohesion, low socioeconomic status and even single parent households can all put youths at greater risk for violence. People, especially youths, are often influenced by their peers. If a person associates themselves with the wrong crowd or becomes part of a gang, they are likely to engage in violent behavior. Urban areas tend to have higher crime rates in general, so it’s no surprise that youth violence would be higher in these neighborhoods. Another factor that can lead to youth violence within a given community is the level of policing that takes place. A lack of police presence or enforcement of the law can negatively impact deterrence and instead provide opportunity for deviant behavior. One last risk factor I will mention is the culture of violence that exists with technology. Exposure to violence on television, on the internet, in movies and in video games can increase the risk of youth violence. This is a controversial subject, and I personally don’t like it when people use it as an excuse for their behavior. However, studies have shown that violence in countries without television increased after television had been introduced into their culture (WHO, 2015 p.38). So, what can be done to prevent or
Assessing potentially violent students is one thing, but determining what is causing these high-risk teens to act out is another. Numerous reasons have been suggested as to why teenagers kill. One possibility could be the media. This includes music, movies, books and video games. Social science research conducted over the past 40 years supports the conclusion that viewing violent television programming has negative consequences for children, and the research suggests three factors in which watching violent television programs can impact young viewers. (Aidman, 1997) These factors say that media violence can encourage children to learn aggressive behavior and attitudes, media violence can cultivate fearful or pessimistic attitudes in children about the non- television world, and media violence can desensitize children to real-world and fantasy violence. One very controversial music artist made headlines when the Columbine massacre occurred. From day one,
Lifestyles also play an important part in youth violence. Growing up in a divorced family as well as the way your parents raised you are major aspects that effect youth today. When children go through a divorce they experience tremendous pain and go through a lot of changes in their life.(chapter 9 impact of divorce) They experience behavioral problems, and less academic achievements. Adolescents in this stage can also experience aggression toward their parents as well as their friends and other family members due to the divorce. Every parent had there own parenting styles of raising their kids, however, some ways can lead to corrupt behavior. There are the authoritative parents whose children tend to be moody, aggressive, and have poor communication skills. Then there are the permissive and authoritative parents who are generally caring and sensitive towards their children.(chapter 9 parenting styles) Studies have shown that if you grow up in a family that shows aggression towards one another, then it is more likely that you as a young adult will be aggressive as well. However in recent studies,
The Centers for Disease Control is advertising a campaign that is trying to persuade people to get the flu vaccination shot for themselves and their children. It will be told what techniques they are using to persuade these people to get the shot.
Every year influenza (flu) hits America, and often leaves adults and children ill for days. The Centers for Disease Control takes it upon themselves to encourage adults and children to get vaccinated for the flu. They do this through an advertising campaign that relates to people of all ages. Their Centers for Disease Control campaign focuses on convincing people of all ages, especially children, to get flu vaccinces.
Violence shows it face in many forms. It is slowly taking over the youth of our society, and becoming more prevalent than ever. Is it really environmental factors that are the cause of violence in our youth today? Or is the increase in violence to be blamed on a group of variables, that together, create the perfect recipe for disaster? In the book, Lost Boys: Why Our Sons Turn Violent and How We Can Save Them, author Dr. James Garbarino discusses possible reasons that childhood aged boys are experiencing violence that is carried into their adolescent years. Also, Dr. Garbarino expresses a similar rise in violence in young girls in the book See Jane Hit: Why Girls are Growing More Violent and What Can be Done About It. He looks at elements from birth to adolescence, including cultural influences that may not play as big of a role as one may suspect.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) note that when children participate in the recommended level of physical activity of at least 60 minutes per day multiple health benefits ensue. Nevertheless, since the creation of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) increasing focus has been dedicated to bridging the achievement gap among students and less emphasis has been placed on non-academic curriculum such as physical education. Research has shown that approximately 3.8% of elementary schools provide formal physical education with this percentage steadily declining as children continue onto middle and high school. This decrease in physical activity is in line with reports from the CDC which estimate that one third of children in the United States are overweight and, within those cases, the CDC has documented that children who are overweight have higher absentee rates, have poorer health and experience early signs of mental illness all of which have an impact on academic performance.
The first point of view is presented by Sharyn Parks, Linda Johnson, Dawn McDaniel, and Matthew Gladden, who work at the Division of Violence Prevention, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, CDC (except for Johnson who works in Acentia Corporation, Atlanta, Georgia). These authors work for the CDC which shows that they are experts and therefore credible. They state that “Approximately 67.0% of all
The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention also known as the CDC is the leading federal agency that provides information in all areas of health and safety. The CDC has been at the forefront in numerous areas of medical research and has now taking on the role of providing information about Attention Deficit Hyper Activity Disorder commonly known as ADHD. There are a variety of neurodevelopment disorders, and ADHD is considered to be the most common even though it was first documented in 1902. The CDC website has provided information that effectively utilizes the three rhetorical appeals of ethos, pathos, and logos to inform and educate the public about a common disorder that affects children and adults.
According to the World Health Organization, around 43% of all homicides in the world occur amongst children ages ten to twenty-four every year. In the United States alone, an average of twelve people between the ages of ten to twenty-four are killed each day according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Youth violence is a term that is defined by the CDC as “a significant public health problem that affects thousands of young people each day, and in turn, their families, schools, and communities”. Violence among youth can be a result of drug use, familial issues, or anti-sociality. Although the trend for youth violence is currently declining, youth violence is still a major issue among communities as children exposed to violence can have physical and/or psychological problems later on in life.
A Center for Disease Control Director (CDC) role is well defined. Thus far, the director of the CDC primary purpose is to nurture the public through an epidemic or a pandemic. It is essential for the director of the CDC to contribute to communication as much as possible. Furthermore, resources are vital when health threats are imminent and demonstrator threats. An essential point as a director of the CDC is national and state security. Nevertheless, a CDC director uses innovative security to control and confront all possible threats or attacks.
Throughout nursing school I have been taught that the nursing process includes assessing, diagnosing, planning, implementing, and evaluating. This is vital when trying to figure out what is wrong with a client. However what I failed think about is how we learn how to diagnose and treat these patients appropriately. Of course we learn a lot from nursing school teachers and out of books, but where do they get their information. One very important resource is The Center of Disease Control and Prevention, this organization is very influential to the health care system. The Center of Disease Control and Prevention works around the clock to “protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. (ZZZZZ).” They also help other countries fight and treat disease with the hope of one day finding a way to
I will be evaluating the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) One & Only Campaign. This educational public health campaign has been led by the CDC in partnership with the Safe Injection Practices Coalition (SIPC) (CDC, 2015).
The environment of where a person was raised is another leading cause of crime. When someone grows up in a place where they see all these bad things happening in their society it serves as a role model to them and they adapt other people’s actions. Growing up in a household where somebody does not have parents or a guardian telling them what is right from wrong leads you to do the unthinkable because they do not have any family direction showing you the right way to live life.” One of the most important environmental factors during childhood development is that of socialization or the way a child is ‘taught’ how to act”(Chemistry Web) Lack of faith causes a person to think of violence as their only way to get attention. When someone has no religious values, they think of all the bad things that are bothering them instead of the good that they can bring into their life. Gangs in an environment are a big cause of bringing crime to a society because they are the people who do the most outrageous crimes. They are the ones who are drug dealers, who bring graffiti into neighborhoods, and who commit drive by shootings. Individuals join these gangs to be accepted, to be honored by the people within the gang, and because they may not value themselves
The Centers for Disease Control and Preventions (CDC) oversees the funding for local health departments and state departments, community based organizations and academic establishments towards research and public health programs. CDC partners with partners around the world to identify and study health problems. This also includes the development and advocate sound public health policies, put into effect strategies, provide leadership and training and with the detection and investigation of health problems while monitoring their health as well.
