Hierarchy for Aggression Interventions
Victims of violence and abuse require care from a health professional who is trained to treat the trauma associated with sexual assault, intimate partner violence, neglect, or other forms of intentional injury. Forensic nurses are also a critical resource for anti-violence efforts. They collect evidence and give testimony that can be used to apprehend or prosecute perpetrators who commit violent and abusive acts.
Bully-Sexual Violence Pathway Theory does not suggest that all youth who engage in bullying behaviors will engage in sexually harassing behaviors. What it does suggest is that bullying behavior and homophobic teasing, if not resolved or redirected, may escalate in nature. This escalation may increase the potential for sexually harassing behavior.
