In our presentation we will be talking about how both characters; Lennie and Sam were treated poorly because of there disabilities. We chose this video because : In 'I am Sam', Sam an autistic father is treated very badly because he is disable. Sam has been mentally abused by many people at work and in the community. In 'Of Mice and Men' Lennie is a mentally
handicap character who experiences mental
abuse by many in his community. Lennie makes mistakes through his life ,and his friend George never lets him forget them. Instead of trying to help Lennie during his one time of need George takes Lennies life away.This is one of the major times Lennie has been mistreated. Facts and Statistics
about Mental Abuse: Examples of
Mental Abuse:
~Getting a better idea of
what mental abuse is....
-Mental abuse is a stepping stone to physical abuse.
As such, it is important that the victim gets help as
soon as possible for the mental abuse. In some cases, mental abuse can lead to sexual abuse, even in the case
of a married couple. Sometimes, the abuser uses sex as
a way to make up with the victim. The victim may not want this attention, but the abuser will usually use intimidation to get his/her way.
-Mental abuse is also known as psychological abuse
or emotional abuse. This is a form of brainwashing in which the abuser degrades the victim to the point that she/he feels they can't live without him/her. This type
of abuse often starts out by the abuser wanting to
control little things: the way the victim does their hair, how they spend money, what they cook. Mental abuse
is sometimes overlooked because there aren't any visible bruises or marks on the victim; however, mental abuse can severely affect the victim.
Symptoms of mental abuse vary slightly depending on the case. The victim may feel afraid of her abuser. She may avoid certain topics or may hide things from the abuser because she is scared of the reaction. Her abuser may make her feel like a child. Feelings of hopelessness, intimidation, helplessness, isolation, terror and humiliation are also possible. Family and friends may begin to notice that the victim doesn't contact them often. In some cases, the abuser may control all finances, states HelpGuide.org. Life necessities, such as food, clothing and shelter, may be controlled. Mental abuse can sometimes lead to other mental health problems, such as depression. Suicidal thoughts or suicide attempts may be the result of the mental abuse. Some victims of mental abuse may suffer from eating disorders, especially when the abuser has attacked the way the victim looks.

They have told him he is an unfit father because of his lack of knowledge. This is only one example on how Sam has been mistreated. In an emotionally abusive relationship, one party
controls the other by:
•Undermining his or her confidence, worthiness, growth, or trust
•Manipulating him/her with shame or fear.

Here are examples:
"You shouldn't spend so much on clothes, you don't look good anyway."
"Don't complain about how bad you have it, no one else could love you."
"Working and taking courses is too much for you; you can't handle what you need to do now."
"Your friends and family just want something from you."
"I have to drink to be able to stand you."
"One of these days you'll wake up, and I'll be gone."
"You don't know the first thing about raising kids." Examples of Emotional Abuse of Children,Emotional
abuse means words that hurt feelings. Repeated name
calling, put downs, are words that demean, leave invisible
scars on the shoulder of a young person. Repeatedly calling attention to a child's perceived physical flaw wounds them. A family's financial crisis or family dynamics isn't something a child is capable or responsible of changing ether. Using words to hurt a young child is cruel and unnecessary. ~It explains how a victim would feel. http://www.privatefamilymatter.com/emotional abuse/emotional-abuse-examples http://compassionpower.com/emotionalabuseinrelationships.php ~ It tells you that know matter who you are disabled or not your still somebody. ~ You can do anything you set your mind to
