The Psychology of Violence: Addressing a Critical Public Health Problem
Healthy Living – August 5, 2014
Dr. David Prescott – Acadia Hospital

Violence, Aggression, and Anger: As a leading cause of mortality for youth in America, combatting violence deserves attention for many reasons. Among them, violence is a leading cause of death and injury, particularly among young people. For certain age groups, violence presents a larger health risk than more traditional health problems like cancer or cardiac illness.
From a psychological standpoint, violence differs from anger and aggression.
· Anger is a normal human emotion that is typically experienced when we are threatened or provoked.
· Aggression involves behaviors associated with anger, typically involving verbal or physical threats and action against another person. Certain situations increase the risk of aggression, such as drinking, insults and other provocations and environmental factors like heat and overcrowding.
· Violence is an extreme form of aggression, such as assault, rape, or murder.

So if you are twenty years old and begin to save, the money contributed to the account is pre-tax, and if you didn’t begin removing it until age seventy for example, the money grows protected from tax, or tax are deferred, until you remove any or all of it. Each amount withdrawn prompt the taxes due.
