VAWG Study Guide 2 Fall 2006 These are examples of what to study, to help you organize your study notes. Questions can come from anything covered in class, including videos, whether they are listed on the study guide. Please don’t contact me for the answers. With the exception of Finkelhor’s two sets of four precondcitions, I will never ask you to list more than 3 from a list, but for the multiple- choice/true-false items, you should be familiar with everything in lists. It is hard to imagine how you could study this without knowing the researchers’ names for some of the items below. Obviously, if we don’t cover all of what I have under lecture, it will not be on this exam but be on Exam 3. Whatever we cover by the end of Thursday’s class will be what you’re responsible for on the exam. You are responsible for all of the readings on the syllabus from after Exam 1 and before Exam 2 (as listed under the questions from the readings below). If you can answer the questions from the readings below, then you should be fine for the reading questions on the exam. Lecture 1. How common is IPA? REALLY common about 25% of women experience IPA 2. What is the intergenerational transmission of violence hypothesis? says that children who are in households with IPA are more likely to grow up and be abused or abusers What does it say about girls raised in IPA homes? They are more likely to someday be victims of IPA About boys? That they are more likely to become IPAers What do the findings about it report? 3. How did McCaw and colleagues conduct their study? Phone interviews of women who had had an annual exam within the last year. What categories of abuse did they use? Physical, sexual, and emotional What did they mean by “social functioning” and what did they find about it in their study? Being able to go about normal daily life. How did these findings relate to they category of abuse? Women who were abused missed more days of work and had more bedridden days. 4. What is the Conflict Tactic Scale? What are some of the limitations of this measure? Doesn’t tell about the situation, assumes that there are no physical or other gender difference, ignores many types of abuse. 5. How common is stalking among men and women according to the NVAW study? What gender difference is associated with this? about 12% of women and about 8% of men report stalking. Most stalking victims are women and more stalkers are men. 6. What are the gender differences in IPA victimization and offending in studies of heterosexual couples? Men are generally the abusers and women are generally the victims. 7. Distinguish between the “feminist” v. the “family violence” approaches to studying IPA and its frequencies. Feminist focuses more on women who are being abused while family violence tends to incorporate child abuse within IPA situations. 8.
