Question and answer
factors that make individuals more vunrable to abuse than others
Studies examining the link between child abuse and drug abuse provide an illuminating profile of child abuse victims' troubled lives. [ Physical or sexual abuse typically victimizes a child in the trusted atmosphere of the home, unexpectedly and often repeatedly. Case histories show that the child abuser is often a family member or family friend, sometimes a parent, according to a NIDA analysis of scientific literature. The intimate, devastating, and clandestine nature of abuse destroys a child's natural trust, typically leaving instead feelings of low self-esteem, foreboding, and
helplessness. Abuse can happen to older people in their home, in hospital, nursing and residential homes. Older people who are most at risk of abuse at home include: those who are isolated and don't have much contact with friends, family or neighbours, people with memory problems or difficulty communicating with others, people who don't get on with their carer, those whose carer is addicted to drugs or alcohol, or people whose carer depends on them for a home and financial and emotional support. Other vulnerable adults include people who are open to abuse because of learning difficulties, physical disabilities or mental illness. ]
