Nature vs. Nurture – NATURE More than 85% of children removed from their parents for abuse or neglect have disturbed attachment capacity, for example (Carlson 1989). The relationships between disordered attachment and increased risk for violent and aggressive behaviors are well documented (see Perry, 2001). Neglect disordered attachment violence/aggression Television, videogames, music and film have become increasingly violent (Donnerstein 1995). Huston and colleagues have estimated that the average 18 year old will have viewed 200,000 acts of violence on television (Huston, 1992) this pervasive media violence increases aggression and antisocial behavior, (Lewis et al., 1989; Myers 1995; Mones, 1991; Hickey, 1991; Loeber et al., 1993; O'Keefe, 1995), Antisocial behavior loneliness acting out (ex: Jeffrey Dahmer….) contributes to a sense that the world is more dangerous than it is, (Gerbner 1992) and desensitizes children to future violence (Comstock and Paik, 1991).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
