Database Search instructions

I am thinking about domestic violence prevention as topic for this assignment

Database searching is a useful tool to find more detailed and peer-reviewed health information. For this assignment, Google Scholar is recommended as a starting point as it draws from the widest spectrum of peer-reviewed articles. However, learn how to use the advanced features. By default, google Scholar searches the entire article for your terms, as it allows you to restrict your searches in a variety of ways. Searching by title only is one useful strategy for limited your search.

Your task is to find some background articles on a specific topic addressing Gender Violence Prevention. There are a wide variety of prevention programs addressing both specific and general forms of gender-based violence. Begin by narrowing your focus down to a specific population and a specific type of GBV; Dating Violence in High School, or Sexual Assault in College are examples of this. The next step is that you want to find literature on prevention. Keep in mind that prevention may include many different activities, trainings, curriculum, policies, etc. Your search terms will most likely include “prevention”, your “violence topic of interest”, and your “population of interest”. Take a screen shot, or copy and paste the first full page of your best search for Part 1

I Attach 1 page printout of your database search results including keywords used. This will tell me the search terms and how many results you found.

II. Attach the first page of your article for the critique below

Part II: Critique

The purpose of this assignment is to provide you with experiences related to finding credible research information on a given health-related topic (prevention of specific forms of gender based violence) , and then be able to understand and translate that information. A second purpose is to help you find some sources for you final project paper, which this semester will be a topic surrounding:

This critique is a three part paper on a current scholarly/journal article of your choice, which you have read, that is related to your Ge Violence Prevention topic paper. Reading and reporting on an abstract of the article does not count.

Each of the first three parts should be no more than one page single-spaced (total of 3 pages). The parts are as follows:


Summarize the major points made in the article/presentation in your own words in one page. Assume that the reader has never seen the article.


Criticize and/or praise specific points made in the article/presentation. Answer questions such as: what was good, what was bad, why? It is helpful to base an argument, criticizing or praising, on ideas discussed in class and especially focus on gender and health implications.


Answer the question, "What does the article mean to me?" The "me" in this case should refer to you in your future career practice. Certainly the meaning, or the worth of the article is related to your critique. A major implication may be that a particular article has either changed or reinforced your thinking on the subject at hand.

Sexual Assault
Institutional Affiliation



Sexual Assault
The harm inflicted upon individuals and groups that are connected to a specific gender is
known as gender-based violence. It is important to note that there are different forms of genderbased violence. This paper will focus on gender-based violence on college students, mainly
sexual assault. The college has always been a positive and pleasant environment for many
students. However, for the people who experience gender violence and primarily sexual assault,
this can be damaging for them. This forms of harm have elicited a lot of concern due to the
psychological, emotional and physiological impacts it has. It affects the student's even educationwise in terms of low grades. Some people have even gone far to withdraw from their respective
institutions. The impacts of this type of violence can be grouped into both long-term and shortterm. The long-term effects include victimization, post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.
Most of these people go to the extent of engaging in harmful drug abuse (Heise et al, 2002).
In the year, 2015, approximately one hundred and fifty thousand students from a total of
27universities participated in the research of sexual assault and social misconduct. This research
was conducted by the Association of America universities and recorded 23% of female students
who experience sexual assault. This ranges from being touched to kissing and rape. All this is
done without their consent. The research also concluded that approximately 25% of the LGBT
community experienced non-consensual sexual contact. It is important to note that most of these
students do not go to the extent of reporting these cases to the police. This is mainly due to
society and their view towards these cases. So many women and men have been shamed due to



rape incidents. They have been blamed for what happens to them. As such, they are skeptical
when it comes to reporting such cases.
It is important to note that some of the points made in this article resonated with me. For
one, the research was conducted on a total of twenty-seven universities. This ensured that the
data collected was accurate and precise. Furthermore, this ensured that different perspectives and
opinions were given. This article is, therefore, accurate and precise. When it comes to sexual
assault, research has proven that women experience it more than men. This is because women
are much more easily taken the power of. This is not said in a male chauvinistic position but
rather the actual point. Men and all these predators take advantage of this and molest women.
Secondly, in colleges, the number of sexual assault has highly increased. A percentage of
twenty-seven for women who experience sexual assault is a significant number. It is also
important to note that the LGTQ community is also included. The government passed the LGBT
rights in the United States. This means that these people have the freedom to love and to engage
in their personal lives. However, some of the population is still against this. This includes college
students and the country worldwide. They end up getting assaulted and not reporting the
incidents (Russo et al, 2006).
The article points out that most people fail to report these incidents due to various
reasons. The most influencing reason is shame. The society has a different way of viewing
things. In most cases and research articles, the victims of rape and sexual assault end up being
blamed for what happened to th...
