What`s the Silent Majority? Did women’s silence on “private” issues like abortion and sexual assault tank the GOP? Is Sexual harassment a manifestation of power relations ? The relationship between the sexes in many countries around the world includes a considerable amount of violence against women? Data about the United States and give details and quote examples.

“ Sexual Assault and The Silent majority,: Why does the number of sexual assaults continues to increase in the Army?”.

eBLC 009-20

Sexual assault is, per Merriam-Webster dictionary, the illegal sexual contact that usually involves force upon a person without consent. This essay aims to find why the number of reported sexual assault cases continues to increase in the army. In 2006, in collaboration with the Department of Defense, the US Army initiated a program to fight against sexual Assault and Harassment SHARP.

For the Final Paper, you will take on the role of a death penalty mitigation expert hired by the defense attorney to work as a sentencing advocate on behalf of the client/defendant. Based upon the chosen case from the attached list (that was selected in Week 1), you will create a comprehensive case study report arguing against the death penalty for your client (the perpetrator). This report will contain an analysis of the psychological factors that may have contributed to the commission of the crimes in the chosen case study and how these psychological factors should be considered a basis for a prison sentence less than the death penalty. In your paper,

·         Summarize the chosen case.

·         Evaluate the biopsychosocial factors that led the client to commit his or her crimes.

o    Explain the psychological, situational/social, and biological factors that you believe led to the offender’s criminality.

·         Evaluate how these factors may have contributed to committing violent crimes.

o    Identify whether your client suffered from a mental illness.

o    Identify the diagnosis and how the diagnostic criteria was met.

·         Evaluate the ACEs score you calculated for your client in the Week 3 Adverse Childhood Experiences discussion, to the extent that you were able to answer the questions based on what you could out about your client’s history.

o    Explain the impact of childhood trauma, abuse, and neglect may have on criminal behavior.

o    Examine whether your client had any events in life that could be considered traumatic such that this could have influenced the criminal behavior  Explain what the scientific research says about the impact of trauma on criminal/violent behavior.

Analyze any other mitigating factors that may provide a credible argument against a death sentence for your client.

(That is, was your client gainfully employed? Did your client lack a significant criminal history prior to the most recent offenses? Mitigating factors can be anything that humanizes your client and thus makes him/her seem like a candidate for a lesser sentence than death).

Evaluate the mitigating circumstances found in this report.

Propose a specific psychosocial intervention based on your evaluation of the client and case such as counseling, medication, restitution, and so forth. (This proposed intervention will serve as your argument that the death penalty is not appropriate for your client based on these mitigating factors.)

Summarize your analysis and restate your intervention in the conclusion.

Must be six to eight double-spaced pages in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center’s APA Style (Links to an external site.)

Here, as in earlier assignments, the individual whose case you chose will be your client for the purpose of your Comprehensive Case Study Report Final Paper. That is, you have been hired as a mitigation specialist by this individual’s defense attorney to investigate, analyze, and present the underlying biopsychosocial factors that you found were present in this individual’s background and that may explain why your client committed such heinous criminal acts. For the purpose of your Final Paper in Week 5, we will assume that your client is facing the death penalty, and your job is to use the results of your biopsychosocial investigation to provide credible evidence that your client should not be executed by the state. For this assignment, we will proceed as if your client has not yet been sentenced and thus is still alive, even though in all of these cases, your client was ultimately found guilty and in some cases, may have been executed (or may be deceased).

Using the Ashford University Library, examine the criminal behaviors involved in your case using a minimum of four scholarly and/or credible sources.

In your paper,

  • Analyze a minimum of two particular psychological factors that explains the client’s criminal behavior, such as specific environmental/situational, biological, or mental health issues that may explain this individual’s crimes.
  • Create an outline that examines a minimum of two particular psychological factors explaining your client’s criminal behaviors.

Note: For further information regarding the proper format for Outlining (Links to an external site.), visit the Ashford Writing Center.

  • Each topic or step of the outline should include two to three sentences regarding what will be discussed in that section, focusing on the particular psychological factors that explains the criminal behaviors
  • Cite specific examples from the sources that support your research and analysis. For example, if you find that your sources show early childhood trauma is a factor in criminal behavior and your client suffered early childhood trauma, or had a high ACES score, write about that connection between your source and your client’s case.

Note: You are encouraged to integrate any feedback from your instructor and upload the assignment to your ePortfolio (Links to an external site.).
