Charles Manson’s “Family” is one of the most well-known cults in America. His cult gained influence from drugs and the Beatles song Helter Skelter (Charles).

for Introduction: “Discuss why a sociological perspective is important for nurses/midwives to adopt in their nursing/midwifery practice.” What is the relevance in studying sociology and how can one make use of their knowledge in clinical practice? Sociology outlines how our society developed, is structured and how it functions. It is the study of human society and the behaviour of us in it. (Crossman, 2017)
Introduction I. Look around this school and think about exactly how many students are here daily. How would you feel if I told you that one out of every twenty five people are sociopaths(Pratt 2006).The fact of the matter is that not everyone who is a sociopath is a serial killer but oddly enough it has been proven that all serial killers are sociopaths. II. I have chosen serial killers that I found intriguing and that I thought not many people would know a lot about.
Freda Alder has claimed, “At their essence women and men are more similar than dissimilar. Some saw this as unsettling and challenged this idea because they proposed that they were very different in the sense of their preferences, beliefs, and behavior. She is correct in the way that they engage in as much crime as men and have the same needs, but their risk needs in correctional institutions and in communities do differ. I believe that men and women need different programs and different treatment from one another because as much as they are alike, they are different. Each gender responds to situations and treatments differently.
Team killers and serial solo killers have many differences. The major difference that I can see is how they each go about “capturing their prey”. Team killers consist of a dominant figure and a submissive figure. With team killers, the dominant figure is the leader of the pact, the dominant figure is also the one who does the killing. The submissive figure is the person who lures the victim.
According to the article released by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), males accounted for 74.59 percent of the over 12 million arrests in the United States (Federal Bureau of Investigation,2014). This disparities in crimes committed by the two genders is a trend that is seen worldwide. Although it was that female crime rates would come close to male crime rate as the two genders took similar responsibilities in society. Research shows that the social status of male and female criminal is basically the same, which means that there must be something that results in the disparity. Studies have linked masculinity to criminal behavior in males.
Nowadays, people, and more generally young people belonging to the Y generation nay the Z, tend to follow the new fashion trends that are “in” for their generation, or that celebrities they appreciate could have launched. Indeed, they get tattoos and piercings on every parts of their body, just because it is trendy. However, some of them get inked because they want to be part of the society as they are, and not as other people want them to be. They want to have something permanent in a constantly changing world. But, they do not measure the consequences which can appear within the society or before getting a professional occupation.
The ancient Roman town-city of Pompeii was located near modern day Naples in the Italian region of Campania. Pompeii, Herculaneum and many other surrounding villages were almost completely destroyed and buried under 20 feet of ash and pumice in the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The disaster demolished the city, killing its inhabitants and burying it almost completely. Before the disaster, Pompeii was not a town that was well known, but it did flourish. It is believed that it was founded by the Etruscans in the late seventh or early sixth century BC.
Violence can be explained by psychological, psychiatric and neurobiological approaches. These approaches do not exclude the influence of socialization on impulse control, the appraisal of behavior and situations or the actions individuals resort to. Research into neuroplasticity, the influence of socialization on the development of the brain, epigenetics, and fluctuations in hormone levels and neurotransmitters depending on lifestyle and social environment provides growing evidence that neurobiological aspects of human behavior and other psychological processes cannot be separated from society and culture. Are men more prone to violence?
In James Knoll’s article Serial Murder: A Forensic Psychiatric Perspective, which was published in the Psychiatric Times, Knoll takes a more psychological look, into murders and breaking down the concept of it.
