Risk Abstracts

Experts define risk as a combination of the magnitude and probability of adverse effects. Recently, increasing scientific attention has centered on the identification and alleviation of risk in today's world. And Risk Abstracts provides a comprehensive source for interdisciplinary perspectives in this evolving field. Published in association with the Institute for Risk Research at the University of Waterloo, Risk Abstracts encompasses risk arising from industrial, technological, environmental, and other sources, with an emphasis on assessment and management of risk. The database includes occasional articles on topics of significant interest. The broad, multidisciplinary coverage of risk-related concerns ranges from public and environmental health to social issues and psychological aspects. Professionals involved in risk research studies, environmental science, engineering and design, or any type of industry will find in Risk Abstracts essential information that can help them identify, measure, evaluate, and manage risks of all kinds.

    AB: Abstract
    Objective: The present study was designed to examine the extent to which ethnic differences in the circumstances of abuse would be related to psychological outcomes and whether the relationship of ethnicity to psychological outcomes would be independent of ethnic differences in the circumstances of abuse. Method: Ethnic differences in the circumstances of the abuse, depression, and anger, as measured by the Children's Depression Inventory and the State-Trait Anger Expression Inventory, were assessed in 60 Black and Latino sexually abused males aged 13 to 18 years. Factors related to levels of depression and anger in these two groups were also identified. Results: Latino males were more likely to have been sexually abused by an extended family member, experienced more genital fondling, and were exposed to more sexually abusive behaviors. Blacks were more likely to be abused by an immediate family member. Black males had higher anger scores than Latino males, but, there were no ethnic differences in depression scores. Both ethnicity and the relationship to the perpetrator were significantly related to scores on the State-Trait Anger Expression Inventory, however, ethnicity was also significantly related to anger scores irrespective of the relationship to the perpetrator. Conclusions: Ethnic differences in the circumstances of abuse were related to psychological outcome and the relationship of ethnicity to anger scores was independent of ethnic differences in the circumstances of abuse.
