WEEK 2 DISCUSSION 1Social versus Human CapitalThere are many types of abuse such as physical, psychological, or sexual that although seems to be statistically directed toward females, is not gender, age, sex, race or ethnicity discriminatory. Outcomes of abuse are varied, but one that affects victims of abuse is isolation, which can be due to the lack of desire to associate with anyone because of the shame they are made to feel by their abuser or the abuser forces their victim to cut all ties with family and friends. “Abusers often alienate their victims by harassing, bullying, or physically abusing them when they attempt to build or maintain personal relationships” (Burkholder & Nash, 2013, p. 88) and again it is not discriminatory to any of the above characteristics, so in child abuse and elder abuse cases, isolation still plays a big part in the lack of social ties. Abuse is about power and control that keep the victim subservient to them (Crisafi & Jasinski, 2016).Social and human capital affects abused individuals differently such as social capital that refers to resources through and individual’s social ties that allows for accessibility information, ideas, leads, and emotional support. “Human capital is measured by the level of completed education, employment statusand position, and living conditions” (Burkholder & Nash, 2013, p. 99) and the risk of abuse increases when the abuser is better educated increasing their human capital. Bui et al. (2007) surmised, “Women who have more exposure to any of these types of capital have a greater chance of seeking help through both informal resources, such as family and friends, and formal resources, such as social service agenciesand shelters, that may be able to assist them in making the transition toward a nonviolent life” (as cited by Crisafi & Jasinski, 2016, p. 987).I personally think social capital has the greater influence for victim’s emotional support andalso for helping the victim find resources to help him or her find the best way to get out of theirviolent situation. Developing social ties through human services, shelter, etc. are detrimental indeveloping strategies and safety plans that could ultimately save their lives. No amount ofeducation or employment capabilities will prevent or stop abuse, so human capital is less likelyto be as important although financial stress is lessened.
