MRI scans reveal how child molesters may be wired differently

BRAINPedophilia is often thought of as synonymous with child molestation, but this is not always the case. Not everyone diagnosed with pedophilia will commit child sexual offences, and some people who sexually offend against children are not pedophiles. Now a new study has shown there are differences in the brains of those who attack children and pedophiles who have never molested anyone, and the findings could help predict whether or not a pedophile might go on to offend.

Educational Opportunities for Survivors of Domestic Abuse

The best thing that a battered woman can do for herself is to further her education. This way, she can become independent so she can support herself and her children all on her own; but the first thing she must do is to get out of the abusive relationship that she is in. Once she finds the courage and the help that she needs to get out of the situation she is in, she will want to better her chances of finding stable employment through higher education. For this she will need funding. Fortunately for her, there are several organizations that provide scholarships and grants to survivors of domestic violence.

Advice for Child Abuse Survivors: How to Overcome Social Anxiety at College

Advice for Child Abuse Survivors: How to Overcome Social Anxiety at College

imagesSocial anxiety can be a result of many things, and is often seen in adults or young people who suffered from abuse or bullying as a child. For students with social anxiety, getting a college degree can be a lot more difficult, as for them, simply going to class could be something that makes them feel like having a panic attack. However, along with the right treatment and support, there are many things that you can do in order to make college easier on your social anxiety. Use college to your advantage in order to overcome social anxiety and achieve your college degree.

Online Classes

Many colleges offer online classes as an alternative to classes on campus. The best thing about studying online for your degree is that you can do it on your own, from the comfort of your own home. Although it’s good to get as used to being around other people as much as possible in order to help you overcome your anxiety problems, having the option of online classes for when you’re having a particularly bad day can be comforting. Online classes are available for a range of different degree topics, for example this master of science in nursing at Bradley University.

Counseling

Many colleges will have free counselling and therapy services which students are welcome to attend. Although you may also be getting counselling from a therapist or other health professional recommended by your doctor, it’s also a great idea to take advantage of any free additional counselling services offered to you by your college. College counsellors are specifically trained to help students in situations such as yours.

Making Friends

Social anxiety can make you become your own worst enemy when it comes to making friends. However, true friends will always stick by you even when your anxiety is bad, and they won’t judge you or make fun of you for it. College is one of the best times in your life when it comes to making friends, and with so many people there, it’s no surprise that most people meet their best friends for life when they’re studying for a college degree. Don’t worry about ‘fitting in’ – simply be yourself, and you’ll attract the right friends for you.

Relaxation Therapies

When it comes to managing social anxiety at college, there are plenty of things that you can do at home. Therapies such as mindfulness meditation have been proven to be highly effective when it comes to dealing with anxiety and stress problems, and can help you to regain control. Along with that, art and music therapies are also becoming more and more popular when it comes to managing anxiety issues, for example adult coloring books, which can provide you with a great distraction when you need to relax and wind down. These can be very useful if you’re doing a stressful course, such as a masters of science in nursing.

College can be a stressful time in the life of any young person, but if you have social anxiety, it can be even more difficult. Thankfully, your college years are the best time to work on overcoming your social anxiety for good.

One Girl Under Age 15 Married Every 7-Seconds

downloadOne girl under 15 is married every seven seconds, according to a report by Save the Children released on Tuesday, with girls as young as 10 married off – often to much older men – in countries including Afghanistan, Yemen, India and Somalia. Early marriage not only deprives girls of education and opportunities but increases the risk of death or childbirth injuries if they have babies before their bodies are ready. “Child marriage starts a cycle of disadvantage that denies girls the most basic rights to learn, develop and be children,” said Save the Children International CEO Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

9-Month Old Brutally Raped

Posted by Sandra On October - 5 - 2016 ADD COMMENTS

ben_taylorWEST VIRGINIA – An infant is clinging to life, and her mom’s boyfriend is behind bars in association with what authorities are calling the “worst case of sexual assault” that they’ve seen in 20 years. The Dreamin Demon reports that 32-year-old Benjamin Taylor is facing a variety of charges, which stem from the horrifying incident that took place on Monday morning. Police in Ripley, West Virginia say that they became aware of Taylor’s alleged actions when his girlfriend called 911 to report that her infant daughter was unresponsive. The nine-month-old victim’s mother told authorities that she woke up from her sleep to find that the little girl was missing — and so was her 32-year-old boyfriend. It didn’t take long for her to locate the infant, however, but under absolutely terrifying circumstances. The nine-month-old baby girl was found in the basement of the apartment building where the family has been residing. She was reportedly covered in blood and unconscious at the time of the discovery.
