Study

Vignette—Alice

Alice is a 32-year-old African-American woman who is employed as a family physician in a large family practice in a medium-sized city in New Jersey. She was raised Protestant and still attends church on Sundays with one of her sisters. Mike is a 27-year-old African-American man who is employed as a pharmaceutical representative. Alice and Mike met at a medical conference where Mike’s employer was a major sponsor. They sat next to each other at a dinner and started dating soon after that. Alice does not have children and Mike has two children from a previous relationship.

“Mike and I had been dating for about four months. He was the greatest thing that had come into my life. I hadn’t been with a man for so many years, I had forgotten what it was like, how much fun it was to be in love, how happy it was to have someone make you smile, and someone you could smile with. I guess I was so busy being in love that I didn’t see some of the little incidents that were happening. I guess maybe if I would have opened my eyes, what happened the other night wouldn’t have happened. I just don’t know. I just don’t understand it all.

Mike had come over at about four in the afternoon, and we were going out to dinner and then to a game. I was excited. I had never been to a basketball game. Mike was going to explain everything that happened for me, so that I would understand what was going on. We were supposed to go with a couple of his friends. I had a patient, and I didn’t get home until close to 4:30. Mike was pacing up and down the floor when I walked in. I apologized for being late and told him that I was sorry but I could not leave this patient. We had had little incidents before, but this was the first time I really began to be fearful. Mike’s face started to get red, and I looked in his eyes and I became frightened. His eyes just looked like they belonged to someone else. His whole body began to change. It became more rigid, and he started to yell at me. At first, his abusiveness was really only putting me down for only caring about my patients and not caring about him. When I protested and tried to calm him down, he only seemed to get angrier. Before I knew it, he was shaking me and slapping me, as well as screaming at me. I screamed back at him to stop, but he wouldn’t listen. In fact, he reminded me of patients I have had who have gone into psychomotor seizures. At that point, I started pushing away from him and attempted to flee, but he caught me and started swinging me around in the kitchen. All of a sudden, he took me and flung me across the room, and I felt myself crashing into the stove. That was the last thing I knew. I fell on the floor, and I could feel somebody stomping and kicking me as I lay there. I sort of felt like I was drifting in and out of consciousness.

“I don’t know how long I lay there on the floor, but when I woke up, Mike was gone. The house was dark. The pain was so bad I could barely move. I knew that I had to have been seriously injured. From the pain, I thought maybe I had some internal bruises. Thank God there’s a phone in the kitchen. I crawled and barely made it to the phone. I pulled on the cord so that I could knock it down to the floor, because I could not stand. I called my partner and just told him that I was physically injured. I didn’t tell him what happened to me but just told him to send an ambulance. The next thing I knew, I was there in this hospital bed. I don’t know what happened. I don’t know how I got here. All I know is what they had told me the next morning.

“Apparently, when Mike pushed me into the stove and maybe when he was stomping on me with his feet, my kidneys were damaged. As soon as they got me to the hospital, they could barely find my pulse, and they knew there was internal bleeding. They rushed me into the emergency surgery and had to remove one kidney. My second kidney was badly damaged, but they think they can save it. I don’t know what happened. I don’t know how it got so bad. It just seems like it’s all one great big nightmare. I just don’t know what I’ll

do. How can anyone so kind and gentle like Mike, that I could love so much and who could love me so much, do this to me? I just don’t understand.”

(Two days after the surgery, she was asked how she felt about being in the hospital. Afterward, she said that she and Mike were going off on this wonderful cruise as soon as she got out of the hospital.)

“I’m really not sure how the whole incident happened. Perhaps it was my fault. Mike says he really didn’t throw me against the stove. He just pushed me and I fell and hit the stove. I really believe him. He couldn’t have wanted to hurt me as badly as I was hurt. It really must have been an accident.”

Discuss types of intervention strategies you would expect his parents to find at a community level, such as in community centers, schools, and social service agencies, to assist children like Greg who are at risk due to ongoing exposure to media violence.

Week 3—Media Issues

Go watch some TV this week!  Yes, for homework!  Specifically, you are going to watch an hour of children’s shows (preferably cartoons) and analyze the violence you see.  We will be discussing your analysis in the discussion.

The assignment this week is the first LASA.  For this assignment you are in the role of a behavioral consultant, and will be giving advice to concerned parents about the level of their son’s exposure to media.  There are many components to this paper, so make sure you address each one.  I would recommend structuring your paper with subheadings, which you get from the grading rubric (e.g., “Prevalence” as the first subheading, “Dangers of media violence” as the second subheading, etc.).  If you structure your paper this way, you will not inadvertently skip over any sections, and it is a wonderful way to organize your paper.

******Protecting Children From Media

For his 10th birthday, Greg was given a handheld videogame system. His parents allowed him to pick any two games. They knew the games might contain violence, because there was a violence rating sign posted on the games, but rationalized that they were only games and other kids play them. Greg would quickly finish dinner and run up to his room to play his games.

His parents were pleased to observe that Greg enjoyed their present so much. After a week, his parents noticed that he wasn’t turning off the videogames at bedtime, and had begun turning homework in late. He was up so late playing that he would not get up for school without argument. His parents decided that enough was enough and took the video games away. Greg threw temper tantrums and persuaded his parents to buy him a computer after convincing them that it was necessary to keep up at school. Greg soon returned to the same pattern of behavior where he spent long hours and late nights at the computer. This time, his parents felt a false sense of security that he was doing his homework. One day, his curious parents decided to scan the computer history to see what Web sites Greg was browsing. To their horror, they discovered that Greg was spending many hours online playing interactive, sometimes violently graphic, games on the Internet. He was also chatting with other “gamers”. Before confronting Greg about his behavior, his mother and father agreed to investigate what types of intervention strategies might be available within their community. They have come to you, a behavioral consultant, for advice.

Describe the issue of exposure to videogame violence in today’s society as related to Greg’s situation. Explore issues such as:

  1. Prevalence (e.g., age, gender, racial diversity, etc.)
  2. Given Greg’s developmental level, what are possible dangers of exposure to media violence? Be sure to address this in the context of his cognitive and socioemotional development.
  3. Risk and protective factors, including predisposition to violence (e.g., are all children who play violent videogames likely to become more aggressive? What protective factors might mitigate the possible outcomes for Greg?
  4. Discuss the possible outcomes if Greg’s behavior continues unchecked.
  5. Discuss types of intervention strategies you would expect his parents to find at a community level, such as in community centers, schools, and social service agencies, to assist children like Greg who are at risk due to ongoing exposure to media violence.
  6. What would be a good plan to recommend to Greg’s parents?
  7. Compare the dangers of exposure to videogame violence with other forms of violence. What are similarities and differences between videogame violence exposure and the other type of violence you chose to compare?
  8. What are the costs of videogame violence to the family and the community and society at large and the other form of violence you chose for comparison?
