The Case of Connie In certain tumultuous relationships, clients may sometimes endure various scenarios, which may not only be detrimental for them but for their children as well. Experiencing these stressful relationships can also have psychological implications for all parties that are involved and can possibly lead to mental health disorders, which may induce other critical consequences, such as drug abuse, physical abuse from the victim or even suicide as well.

Introduction Sexual offenders usually cause great harm to the societal at large leading a high level of public concern. When a person commits a sex-related crime, he or she is referred as a sex offender. Different culture and legal jurisdiction have different meaning and understanding about what constitutes a sex crime. When determining what to do with a sex offender, when and how to do it and the reasons for doing that, should be considered carefully. Development, needs, levels of risk and functioning of such individuals should be taken into consideration.

Individual consequences that is for the victim itself, may include actual physical harm (from the assault itself) and increased risks of sexually illnesses such as pregnancy, mental health problems (posttraumatic stress disorder/PTSD), and others chronic health problems. Female veterans who were sexually assaulted during their military careers are more likely to use mental health services. They experience difficulty adjusting to civilian life, and have more trouble obtaining employment after discharge than are female veterans without a history of sexual assault, as the example of impact in the society. Studies have also found the victim of
Alcohol causes a lot of people who would not otherwise have committed a crime to commit one. When people are drinking in public or are visually intoxicated in public it scares families away. Intoxicated people are more likely to start arguments and physical altercations. Alcohol is a factor in 40% of all violent crimes, and offenders of violent crimes are significantly more likely to have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs when they committed the crime (“Alcohol, Drugs and Crime”). This puts innocent bystanders at risk and causes tourists to avoid the area where the intoxicated person is, which hurts the local businesses because they are not bringing in customers.
Older people often have physical impairments that make it difficult for them to cross the street. However, older people are less likely to walk while intoxicated. Studies have shown that socioeconomic status can play a role in pedestrian accidents. People who are economically disadvantaged are more likely to be involved in a pedestrian accident. Researchers believe that a lack of social support is one of the reasons the economically-disadvantaged are more likely to be involved in an accident.

The House on Mango Street shows that the basis of violence and poverty are social inequality. This social inequality limits lower class from getting employed. The neighbourhood in the novel is impoverished because of the inequality in their society. The House on Mango Street shows that women are sexually abused, not having the opportunity to receive the same amount of education as men and have unequal contributions to the workforce. In our society, gender inequality leads to men having more power than women.
For example, a movie or television show depicting a certain race as criminals or sexual predators helps increase a certain stereotype towards it. This leads to discrimination culminating in things like violence and bias in workplaces and medical care facilities. Bias certainly has negative effects on the community. Bias towards certain groups can leave the other groups feeling inferior or left out in certain detrimental activities of the community. This may also lead to psychological problems like depression and stress stemming from an episode of being left out in a certain situation.
