In the workplace this may not be talked about or it could cause a plethora of problems. A majority of people may not even realize they are apart of workplace violence. Whether they are the victim or the actual victimizer. Violence in the work place is not something that is frequently talked about unless it happens to be on a traumatic level, like a shooting. However, even a threat is considered workplace violence and although it may be a “joke” or unintentional, it is dangerous and needs to be taken very seriously.
In the workplace, women and men often become too frightened to speak out about sexual harassment because of the consequences that could conceivably transpire. (Introductory prepositional phrase) Sexual harassment, a critical issue in every business, due to the fact that it rises more than others think. Any unwanted type of interaction with another person also considered sexual harassment. Sexual harassment has shown, it affects a person physically and can cause them to not function properly in an environment where he or she feels uncomfortable. Everyone has a different perspective of sexual harassment, most people do not truly have the understanding that it can have many different types of meanings, such as inappropriate sexual advances
CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION OF THE STUDY INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY The study seeks to investigate the views pertaining to learners, teachers and parents on gender violence in schools. These views are vital in understanding and dealing with gender violence in schools. The United Nations regards violence in schools as one of the main social concerns and it should receive appropriate attention (United Nations, 2006). This is because such violent behaviours limits the basic benefits provided through education, and in some cases causes poor health or leads to a range of psychological traumas for the victims of gender violence (ibid). The World Report on Violence against Children has further identified the different forms of violence
The child may interpret the parent’s lack of involvement as an indication that school is not important and may lose motivation.Overall, research has figured out that parental involvement does make a difference to pupils’ engagement and their achievement and the evidence indicates that parental involvement benefits students, parents, teachers and schools. There is no clear line which indicates less participation of parents and more participation of teachers. Both have crucial role to play and results are noticeable if parents and school work together. Parents’ self-esteem is very important in determining long term outcomes for both themselves and their children. Parental involvement greatly impacts a child’s learning and literacy experiences.
This indicates that the hypothesis is accepted. The activities carried out in the program i.e. identification of key strengths and new ways of using them, can be repeated with or without the help of any adult and this can lead to an immediate boost in the self-esteem of the children. The implications for the study will help adolescents cope with the various psychological and emotional challenges they face by using their signature strengths. They can begin to look at themselves in the light of their strengths and not their weaknesses.
Other factors that impose additional risk in violent families include a high incidence of other behavior problems (e.g., alcohol abuse and incarceration) in male batterers. Maternal psychological distress may also expose children to additional indirect risks, such as the mother being emotionally unavailable to the children (Zuckerman et al.,
Moreover, violence has a huge impact on the quality of teaching and learning. It is the negative impact, considering the fact that it is very rare to say that the school environment is the peaceful place one may find him or herself in. Learners go to school for the primary purpose of learning and at the end of the term they surely expect to progress to another level of education, but there are some hindrances towards achieving their goals. Singh (2006, p. 120) indicates that the impact of violence on the quality of teaching and learning have an impact academically, emotionally and in the career. Violence impacts the academic progress in this respect.
Then again, the study also brought into light the problem of street gangs as being the source of violence in schools. The responses from interviewees confirms that the conflicts of outside gangs are affecting the schools, some of the fights and killings that take place in the school premises are the result of the conflict from home not something that relate to school and it has nothing to do with school issues. (Clinard and Meier,
For example, it may ruin the feeling of safeness in the school environment for that student. It can even inhibit their ability to excel in academics. In an article written by Elisha Mcneil, it states: A growing body of evidence highlights the connection between adverse childhood experiences and academic problems. The effects of trauma can impair a child’s cognitive ability, while the stress of a dysfunctional or unstable home life can make children act out or shut down in the classroom. In a way, I think that a school not being trauma-informed almost creates an unsafe environment for the student.
The term “violence against women” means any act of violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, psychological and sexual harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, that may be either occur in public or private life.  Workplace violence in health care facilities is rising in alarm rate and has become a major public problem. Even the health care providers, and hospitals are not exceptions including nurses. [2,3] According to the World Health Organization (WHO), workplace violence is where staffs are abused, threatened, or assaulted in circumstances related to their work and while commuting to and from work, involved explicit or implicit challenges to their safety,
