Descriptive research is the method used when the researcher wants to describe specific behavior as it occurs in the environment (Dulock, 1993). Traditionally, descriptive research involves three main categories: observation, case studies, and surveys. Through the help of descriptive research, detailed information that describes the existing phenomena is collected. It provides description about factors responsible for SLC suicide, their impacts, role of family and societies and the measures to aware students. The data of this report are also based on the survey conducted to the parents and also to the students of various educational level regarding their present situations and experience of SLC respectively.
Furthermore, this leaves room for states to implement their own practices and ways to address status offenders. It has also been argued that the Act “fractured the juvenile justice system so that officials in the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare handled white, middle-income youth” (Hinton, 2015, p. 816). Programs which labeled white youths as “children in trouble” marked minority youths as “chronic offenders” who were deemed a danger to society, and tried as an adult. The exceptions and revisions that have been made to the Act make it possible for repeat status offenders to be detained in secure
Methods National research teams in each of the four countries first explored the underlying dynamics behind boys’ underperformance, while reviewing good practices and providing recommendations in the form of country case studies. A broader gender analysis was then undertaken utilizing the information provided in the case studies, government
IS THE YOUTH CRIMINAL JUSTICE ACT TOO LENIENT ON YOUTHS? The Youth Criminal Justice Act is the federal legislation that replaced the young offenders act in 2003. The Department of Justice defines the act by stating: It is the law that governs the Canadian youth justice systems.It applies to youth who are at least 12 years old but under the age of 18, who are alleged to have committed criminal offences. The three main topics in which I believe to be most crucial that relates to the Youth Criminal Justice Act include, how much time a youth must serve based on the degree of the crime especially when the crime committed was well planned out, the severity of the ruling based on a re-offence,
People with disabilities are not just physical but include mental, social, and emotional conditions. Since Ms Flett suffered from mental illness she the judge would have paid attention when giving her the sentence, since he must be aware of the reasons as to why she must have committed the crime (done through the psychologist) and accommodate her punish accordingly. Likewise, the Canadian court can request a pre-sentencing and bail hearing report when considering sentencing an offender of Aboriginal background under Section 718.2(e) of the Criminal Code. The conditions that Ms Flett had suffered when growing up on an Aboriginal reserve had contributed to her mental health issues, for this reason the judge had to recognize when sentencing Ms
The purpose of this project is to explain the multi-causal model and how biography, biology, and social institutions affect or cause bullying behavior. In the first category I will be explaining how genetic predispositions and biochemistry affect or cause bullying behavior. In the second category I will be explaining how someone’s biography or personal circumstances encourage or discourage bullying behavior. In the third and final category I will be discussing how society and culture encourage or discourage bullying. I will also be discussing how the sociological imagination can be used to look at personal experiences and the social forces that affect or cause bullying behavior.
5. What should the government do about the homelessness crisis? According to Chumir (2008), Canadian governments should “address homelessness and inadequate housing as a national emergency” (p. 11) Chumir suggested that Canada restore or expand social housing programs for those in need. This includes improving and accurately insisting on anti-discrimination legislation in the field of housing, increasing shelter allowances and social support rates to reasonable levels, and providing enough support services for individuals with disabilities. Another reason why housing and homelessness requires a federal strategy is that poverty has become a major causal factor in homelessness.
However, when comparing Aboriginal adults and non-Aboriginal adults with the same education and employment characteristics, the incarceration rates among Aboriginal adults were 3.3 to 5.1 times higher. In short, these socio- economic characteristics reduced the difference in incarceration rates of adults aged 20 to 34 by half in Alberta. A similar pattern occurs in Saskatchewan (Table 7). Still, even when comparing persons with the same characteristics, incarceration rates for Aboriginal young adults remain higher than those of their non-Aboriginal counterparts.” (statcan, 2015) Many structures have been put in place by the government, in order to find a strategy to fight racism in Number of institution inside the country such as: Government agencies that give hiring opportunities to visible minorities, the police force is recruiting to have a better representation of the Canadian population. Courses like sociology help to understand the interaction between the different
Another category is “Aboriginal Education”. the goal for this category is “Work with Aboriginal leaders and organizations to improve educational outcomes among Aboriginal children and youth” (Aboriginal Affairs, 2005). A strategy for this is that the Ministry of Education work with aboriginal communities, organizations and also school boards to create an Aboriginal education policy (Aboriginal Affairs, 2005). A program that has already helped in this category is that the ministry of education will provide yearly funding (around $650,000) to eight native friendships Centre’s to help fund some secondary school programs (Aboriginal Affairs, 2015). Finally the last category to be covered is the “Aboriginal Justice strategy”.
Having knowledge of social policies is essential to address elder abuse because it is crucial to have valued information to provide to the service user or how to report any type of abuse or neglect with seniors. In Canada, elder abuse legislation is a responsibility of federal, provincial and municipal (Podnieks, 2008). Likewise, the federal Criminal Code (1985) defines the standards for criminal justice through the country. Hence, this code has strengths and limitation regarding elder abuse. The major drawback of the Criminal Code is the fact that it does not address elder abuse specifically.
Introduction The little community of Attawapiskat, Ontario, Canada has been and is currently facing an immense loss due to a high amount of youth suicides. The community has been under a state of emergency since April 2016 after many of the community’s youth have tried to or succeed at committing suicide. These suicides have been the product of colonialism and intergenerational trauma from the generations that came before them. The devastation in the community can teach Child and Youth Care practitioners how to put into action programs that build youth’s strengths and resilience as well as overcome any negative factor that have been created during this epidemic. Though it is important to note there have also been positive factors that have
The three main acts that have structured Canada’s youth crime department are The Juvenile Delinquents act, The Young Offender’s act, and The Youth Criminal Justice Act. In 1908 the first big act was established, known as the Juvenile Delinquents Act. This Act helped give more proper punishments to youth. Before most youth offenders were given adult punishments, usually hanging, flocking, or being sent to a prison house which would tend to be in horrible condition. They treated criminal youth like youth that had been “misguided and mistreated”.
In table 2 & 3, the compares of categorical suicidal risk factors shows the variables. The reliability and the validity should be tested before the interview. Bigler (2008) suggested that various cognitive neuroscience measure, either by themselves or combined with functional neuroimaging methods, holds promise for more accurate assessment of the effects of TBI on behavior and
