I need support with this Sociology question so I can learn better.
A. Evaluate Finkelhor’s multi-causal theory of the sexual abuse of children. Is his theory more useful than any other theories applied to family violence this semester? How so? Does Finkehlhor’s theory apply to both male and female offenders/abusers? Male and female victims? Why or why not?
B. In lecture, material was presented which discussed why particular cases may or may not come to the attention of Child Protective services. Compare and contrast the weaknesses of using official reports to quanitify the incidence of physical child abuse versus sexual child abuse. Be sure to discuss at least two weaknesses of each. Based upon your comparison and contrast, which reports do you find most valid (reliable/ representative/useful)?
