(1983) found in their study that patients, who had sexual relationship with their therapists, had difficulties resuming their treatment and/or finding a new therapist. Even though there are ethical codes on refraining having sexual relationship with clients, several therapists still engage in sexual behaviour with their clients (Borys & Pope, 1989; Bouhoutsos et al., 1983). More importantly, the severity of this problem depends on how the therapist and/or client handle the relationship. The best scenario is when the therapist and client end both relationship immediately while the worst scenario is when the therapist and client continued the dual relationship. Bouhoustsos et al.

Positivists think of victims of rape as people who most likely are partly responsible for the offence happening. The positivist ideologies such as victim precipitation and also victim proneness lead to said victim being blamed for the attack against them, instead of the blame being placed on the perpetrator. Feminists think of victims of rape as nothing else other than someone who has been targeted and become a victim of an offence that is the fault of another. Feminist ideologies such as intersectionality show that it is the small things that make up a person that increase or decrease their likelihood of becoming a victim of rape. Although they may be seen as being more likely due to their race, religion, social class, gender, age and sexuality, it does not mean they are to blame for the offence against them.
All the same, there must be a way to allow men to act and see past their hyper-masculinity from an earlier age, in order to help prevent domestic and sexual assault all together. One way Michael Kaufman suggests in his article, The Seven P’s of Men’s Violence, is “challenging and dismantling the structures of men’s power and privilege, and ending the cultural and social permission for acts of violence” (4). Most people do not learn about social issues, especially gendered violence issues in their day-to-day life, unless it is of unfortunate happenstance. Personally, I did not learn of these problems until I went away to college; which, in essence, is unsettling for many people do not have the privilege to get a higher education and thus, are unaware of gendered violence issues as a whole. That is why I would propose we, as a society, teach our children early on how to speak up against violence, especially our boys.
Dehumanization is the process through which someone asserts control and power, treating the person as an inanimate object with no dimension or surface; becoming an object means being acted upon rather than being the active subject. It is easier to be violent to someone who one already feels power over. Dehumanizing women and men is similar to pornography, where either violence or status (men over women) promotes “power over other” (Kilbourne 420). According to Jean Kilbourne in her essay, “‘Two Ways a Women Can Get Hurt’:Advertising and Violence”, advertisement is portraying women’s body as objects that both lead to dehumanization, violence, and mistreatment toward women. Considering the opposing characterization between males and females, femininity refers to submissiveness and vulnerability that is often depicted in advertisement.
He argues that people especially those living an affluent lifestyle need to alter their entire perception of morality. He puts forward the assumption he relies on in order to continue with his argument (automatically considering that assumption to be true): death and suffering due to the lack of basic necessities of life are bad. Singer then states the principle which is if we can prevent terrible occurrences without sacrificing something of equal moral significance then we should go ahead and do so; this principle plays a major role in his argument. Next, he puts forward a more moderate version of the principle by replacing equal moral significance with anything of moral significance. The nature of the principle, according to Singer, is contentious, for if applied has the potential to change everything about our values and lives.
The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you. Everybody makes mistake and they try to learn and move on from them but killing someone intentionally would stick with that person forever and they would never be the same. Therefore, some people debate on whether he was completely out of place for killing Beatty or did the best thing for society. Although Montag killed Beatty, many people debate over whether it was the right thing to do or not.
According to Coates and Wade (2004) attributing the assault to a psychological disorder to naturalize his behaviour. However, this testimony leads to the idea that it is okay to rape young girls to help men get over the sexual anxiety issues. His responses do not indicate the details of the events on hand, nor the girls’ reactions to the assault. He also conceals his violence by using the word “vice”. On two occasions he said that he uses “sex as a vice” and “loved sex because of the vice at the time”.
This concept is highly debated because if two adults are consenting to the transaction of money for sex, there is no reason it should be criminalized. This argument is further criticized by anti-prostitution activists that say it undermines gender equality and promotes the objectification of women (Glazer). These activists capitalize on the problems that harm reduction/elimination methods fail to absolve and argue for complete criminalization of all sex
It took on the act of sexually penetrating their victim as a power role. Not necessarily that the assailant chose their target and in hopes of relieving whatever sexual urges they may be feeling at that point and time. Rather, the assailant is feeling a lack of control and is desperately searching to get that power back no matter what the consequences may be. I almost think of this of more of a Freudian approach. Quite frankly, I am unsure of what to think of the approach presented in the video clip showed in my Crisis Intervention class over PTSD in military women.
These laws, then, uphold old notions of chastity and virginity, while providing a weapon against men from social groups we do not like. They also deprive women in their mid and late teens of choice under the guise of protecting that choice. The highly “patriarchal and paternalistic” law is what Delgado sees an area for further revue. With the lack of women being charged for such crimes, he questions things such as pressured intercourse and sexual love involving two consenting individuals.

The treatment process involves three main stages, namely; stabilization, trauma-focused therapy, and reintegration. Stabilization is the first step in the treatment of complex PTSD and involves speaking with the therapist to ascertain how the individual can control the feelings of distrust and thus lose the feeling of disconnectedness from family and friends. The technique commonly used in this stage is called grounding. The grounding technique assists in separating an individual from the traumatic or abusive past from their present. This makes the past less threatening by reducing the number of flashbacks the individual experiences thereby making them experience less anxiety and cope with life properly.
