This paper will seek to briefly explain the background of each factor and show how one part adds to the oppressive nature of the others. In addition, the paper will seek to briefly explain the behavior of the people/children who have been victimized and the conflict that they experience when they consider new alternatives. Finally, the paper will address ways that institutions of higher learning can identify and support people who have been victimized by violence by helping them get an education, which is the path out of the abuse and violence.
