MetadataShow full item record
AbstractI am a survivor of domestic violence. I also am Deaf. Domestic violence is an aggressive behavior within the home, typically involving the violent abuse of a spouse or partner. It can come in many forms: physical, mental, verbal, and emotional abuse. Most commonly, domestic violence is targeted against women. I am sharing my story as a survivor because of my time in Vera House, which is a shelter for battered women. My time at Vera House fired my passion to correlate my personal experience and informative research to raise awareness by educating others about the unique needs of Deaf domestic violence survivors. I hope that my story will awaken the hearing community to the fact that Deaf victims need allies on their side to make a change for Deaf domestic violence survivors.

LGBTQ Intimate Partner Violence: The Invisible RelationshipMurray, Alise (8/27/2018)I have personally experienced LGBTQ Intimate Partner Violence (IPV). My topic is important because those who experience intimate partner violence, and who are LGBT or in queer relationships, are not provided information about IPV as often as heterosexual individuals. I hope readers will learn and realize that individuals in the LGBT community can face IPV, and that this issue needs more discussion. IPV is not something that affects one facet of someone’s life, it can affect multiple parts.
A Comparison of Teacher Reported Violence between Monroe County Public High Schools and New York State Public High SchoolsBalog, Linda F.; Smits, Elizabeth M.; The College at Brockport (12/1/1995)This study determined the reported incidences of violence against Monroe County public high school teachers and compared the rates with those reported by New York State public high school teachers. Although the rate of juvenile violence has increased at a rate of about 50% in the past four years in Monroe county, it was found that Monroe County teachers report similar incidences of robberies (7.2%%) to that reported by New York State teachers (3.6%) and a similar percentage of assaults (9.7%) to that reported by New York State teachers (8.0%). The study also found that 92% of the New York State teachers reported no use of a weapon during robberies and 83.8% reported no use during an assault, while 100% of the Monroe County teachers reported no use of weapons during a robbery and 93.8% reported no use during an assault. With regard to prevention programs already in place in their schools, fewer Monroe County teachers experience confidence where more New York State teachers appeared more confident in these programs.
