This week’s first discussion forum will focus on the population of
abused individuals. Abuse is a pervasive problem in our society.
Although the forms of abuse, as well as the intensity and duration can
vary from case to case, each abused person is tasked with dealing with
the scars left from the abuse. As you can imagine, this task can be
very challenging to say the least. Using research to help you form an
opinion, which form of capital (social or human capital) do you feel
will have a greater influence over resources accessible to the abused?
If abused, which form of capital would you rely on for emotional support
and help through difficult times, such as these and why? Chapter 3 of
the course text defines these terms in more detail.
Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your
research and claims must be supported by a minimum of two scholarly
sources beyond your course text.
