More than 40% of domestic violence victims are men. 2 in 5 of all victims of domestic violence are men, contradicting the widespread impression that it is almost always women who are left battered and bruised, a new report claims. "Data from Home Office statistical bulletins and the British Crime Survey show that men made up about 40% of domestic violence victims each year between 2004-05 and 2008-09, the last year for which figures are available. In 2006-07 men made up 43.4% of all those who had suffered partner abuse in the previous year, which rose to 45.5% in 2007-08 but fell to 37.7% in 2008-09". Most men who experience domestic violence and abuse often don’t seek help until the problem becomes a crisis, researchers say. Men tend to worry they would not be believed, or that they would be perceived as less masculine if they reported abuse, their analysis found. Fear of disclosure was the main concerned for men. Along with fearing, many men concluded that they wouldn’t be believed or would be seen as weak. Men often stayed in abusive relationships because they felt committed to or concerned about their partners. Also, many times victims are unaware that there are services to protect them. Literacy is another issue because women are taught that domestic abuse is something that happens to women and therefore they need to be on their guard. Men aren’t taught or brought up in the same way.

There are several types of traumatic events that can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Sexual abuse is a particularly sinister type of trauma because of the shame it instills in the victim. When not properly treated, this can result in a lifetime of PTSD, depression, and anxiety. It is more likely for a child to experience sexual abuse at the hands of a family member or another supposedly trustworthy adult. Outcomes of sexual abuse: By far the most common effect of sexual abuse is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Symptoms can extend far into adulthood and can include withdrawn behavior, reenactment of the traumatic event, avoidance of circumstances that remind one of the event, and physiological hyper-reactivity.

La música es un elemento que influye cada día más en la vida de los jóvenes, ya los adolescentes no escuchan lo que sus padres le dicen que es correcto, sino que escuchan lo que ellos quieren o los que sus amigos le dicen; pero la música actual se caracteriza por tener cada día mas mensajes violentos, sexuales y promiscuos que son escuchados por los jóvenes, además los artistas famosos en sus videos se muestran cada vez con menos ropa y muestran mensajes sexuales que los jóvenes buscan seguir. Un ejemplo de esto se puede ver en el reggeaton que esta tan de moda hoy en día, se nota que sus letras no traen mensajes positivos, pero aun así todos las cantan y las bailan con solo escucharlas. Por eso en esta investigación se decidió abordar si la música que escuchan los adolescentes hoy en día afecta su comportamiento o no. La música siempre ha formado uno de los elementos principales en la formación de la cultura, y a su vez puede influir en costumbres y emociones de los individuos. Durante la historia la música ha sufrido grandes cambios, se puede notar en los cambios de ritmos musicales durante los años que van desde la música clásica, pasando por la música disco hasta llegar a la actual, cada época ha tenido un estilo musical que la represente. Los adolescentes son los más propensos a ser influenciados por los nuevos estilos musicales, ya que se sabe que los jóvenes construyen su identidad con el vestuario, el peinado, el lenguaje, y la música. Los jóvenes se unen a grupos. Los amigos son el centro donde se forman los patrones de conducta que sigue el adolescente. El deseo de ser independiente de la familia lo va a suplir con la dependencia de un grupo. En definitiva, se establece un sistema de creencias. Los miembros del grupo actúan siguiendo estas creencias. En los grupos en los cuales, el elemento de unión, es la música, las creencias se generan a partir de ella. Ella es la que determina la forma de vestirse, de peinarse, de moverse, la forma de hablar. Este conjunto de creencias construye la identidad de ese grupo de pertenencia. Por eso es que la población joven, sean los que muestra mayor nivel de compra de material discográfico y son la audiencia principal de los canales de videos musicales. En un mundo que tiende a la homogeneidad extrema, la música parece ser la última salida donde mostrar una diferencia. Ser original, independiente o rebelde, e ir contra la corriente. Quizás sea buscar una identidad diferente a la de sus padres, o quizás, solo ocupar el tiempo libre, o ahogar el sentimiento de soledad, y encontrar un grupo de personas en el que ampararse ante las exigencias del sistema. El hecho es que una de las actividades que más realizan los adolescentes es escuchar música. La música une a individuos de puntos muy diferentes de la sociedad. Esto no es ignorado por las compañías discográficas, que tienen bien en claro su mercado, particularmente juvenil. Por esta razón, resulta lógica la preocupación por buscar, mantener y ampliar

They don't take responsibility: Victims has trouble understanding they contributed to a problem, instead they point finger or ignore their role in perpetuating the problem. 2. They are frozen in their life: Victims believe that they are at the mercy of everyone and everything around them. Usually they will not make progress or advance in their life because they perceive that they are powerless. As a result, their life is stagnant. 3. They hold to grudges: Victims like to hang onto old grievances. They carry these around like weapons, just in case anyone ever tries to hold them accountable for something. They will bring up old memories in which they were legitimately hurt, but they use them as reasons why they can't make changes to their attitude or their life, or their circumstances in the present. 4. They have trouble being assertive: Victims don't truly believe they can control their life, so they struggle to state what they need, desire or deserve. Their life involves repeating patterns of submissiveness and passivity. This pattern is detrimental to self-esteem and personal development. The victim fails to break this pattern and suffers from potential anxiety or depressive disorders. 5. They feel powerless: This could be a shadow behavior, meaning that the victim does not outwardly show that they feel powerless, Instead, the victim will try to be manipulative, coercive, and underhanded in getting what they need. 6. They don't trust others: This is a problem of the victim not believing themselves. The victim makes the assumption that other people are exactly like them. 7. They don't know when to say enough is enough: In relationship they have no sense of limits. 8. They get into arguments easily: Victims have trouble choosing their battles. They think every battle is a war and that they are under attack all the time. 9.They feel sorry for themselves: Victims have a habit of pitying themselves. They mirror a defenseless child that cannot fend for itself. This further traps them in the victim role. 10. They constantly compare themselves to others: Victims usually struggle wit the habit of comparing themselves to others negatively. 11. They see life as always lacking: Even when something good happens, victims will seek out what is lacking or what is missing. 12. They are a critic: Victims have a need to put others down and find fault in people. By doing these things they feel superior. 13. They think they are perfect: When there is a chance that a victim could be caught in an error, they suddenly become perfect. 14: They cut people out of their life: " they are out of my life for good" If you ever heard that statement before not referring to an abusive relationship, then you are probably dealing with a victim.
