Discussion: risk and protective factors | SOCW 6446 – Social Work Practice With Children and Adolescents | Walden University

Violence, aggression, and bullying continue to be major problems among contemporary children and adolescents. As a clinician, you must consider the following questions: 1) What factors increase the risks for violence and aggression? and 2) What protective factors reduce the risks for violence and aggression? The risks for violence include, but are not limited to, child abuse, disconnection to family, and cultural influences. Protective factors that help to mitigate aggression and violence include connectedness to family and community, success in school, and emotional stability. In addition to increasing your knowledge of the propensity of violence, consider a clinician’s role in helping children, adolescents, and families experience and enact violence less often.

For this Discussion, consider the myriad cultures in your community and throughout the world. Using the week’s resources, Walden Library, and reputable sources on the Internet, select a culture and consider the risk factors that might influence violence and aggression within that culture. Consider the protective factors that may help to mitigate violence and aggression within that culture.

With these thoughts in mind:

By Day 3

Post a brief description of the culture you selected. Then, explain one way this culture may influence risk factors for violence and aggression and why. Be specific. Finally, explain two protective factors you might introduce to family systems in that culture that may reduce or prevent violence and aggression, and justify your selection. Be specific and justify your response with evidence-based research.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the week’s resources.
