VIOLENCE (intermediate / advanced adults)

  • What is violence?
  • How many kinds of violence are there?
  • Does one need a gun to act violently?
  • What are the effects of violence?
  • Where are the roots of violence?: are people born violent, or do we learn violence?

  2. Intimidation
  3. Neglect
  4. Rudeness
  5. ...
  6. ...
  7. ...

Which would you add?
