...type that distinguishes men who use sexual or physical violence toward women. One research review found the following personality risk markers for male partner abuse: emotional dependence and insecurity; low self-esteem, empathy, and impulse control; poor communication and social skills; aggressive, narcissistic, and antisocial personality types; and anxiety and depression (Kaufman Kantor & Jasinski, 1998 ). Attempts to identify different types of batterers have concluded that there may be at least two different types of abusive men—one type that is...

...and 25 per 100,000 in Estonia (WHO, 2001 ). While much can be said about differences in definitions and data collection methods among various political and geographic entities, concern regarding children's health and safety is universal. Yet any type of maltreatment short of the most severe physical battering or deprivation is often subject to wide ranging definitions. In one comparative analysis, Freysteinsdóttir ( 2004 ) reported that parents in Iceland generally do not use physical force (a commonly cited risk factor for abuse) to discipline children....

...male), and the basis for homosexual oppression is an ideology of superiority based on sexual orientation (that is, heterosexuality). Violence, which is used to enforce and maintain all oppressions, comes in many forms and may be physical and direct (for example, lynching, rape, battering, gay bashing) or personal and psychological (for example, name-calling based on dominant ideology and negative stereotypes). Violence may be indirect or institutionalized. For example, it may be associated with high poverty rates, the predominance of men of color in the criminal...

...of women in law enforcement impacted negatively on this movement, which along with other problems, such as lack of funding and support from community leaders, led to a decline in victim services in law enforcement (Knox & Roberts, 2007 ). It was not until the 1970s, when the battered women's and rape crisis movements became active, that the social work profession was focused again on crime victims.

...consume. To say that wants or desires are competing is to say that they cannot simultaneously be met. A group of landlords may want an empty tract of land to be used to support a luxury housing development, while a group of social workers may want that same land to be used for a battered women's shelter. Economists assume that available resources are not plentiful enough to produce all the goods and services human beings want. This situation is what economists mean by scarcity, and it is the defining feature of their discipline. Scarcity requires all societies...

Similar to heterosexual violence, violence against homosexuals can be perpetuated by domestic...
