Apostates as a Hidden Population of Abuse Victims.

J Interpers Violence 2020 Jan 12:886260519898428. Epub 2020 Jan 12.

University of Nottingham, UK.

The term "apostate" describes the term used by the religious to describe individuals raised within religious families who once identified as religious, but who have ceased to believe in the existence of God, gods or follow their religious belief, and now identify as non-religious. Given the strong feelings families can have about the rejection of their shared faith, and the difficulty that police forces may have in identifying and understanding the complexities of violence toward the apostate, this study sought to examine the possibility that apostates represent a hidden population of abuse victims within religious households.

Humanistic goals are also implicit and explicit in the profession and practice of genetic counselors. Read More

School of Nursing, McMaster University, 1200 Main St. West, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Although there is no consensus about the definition of professionalism, some generally recognized descriptors include knowledge, specialization, intellectual and individual responsibility, and well-developed group consciousness. In this study, Q-methodology was used to identify common viewpoints about professionalism held by nursing faculty and students, and four viewpoints emerged as humanists, portrayers, facilitators, and regulators. The humanists reflected the view that professional values include respect for human dignity, personal integrity, protection of patient privacy, and protection of patients from harm. Read More
