    • 3 Pages

    Social impacts are the consequences of change in societies and cultures (Basa, 2007) and Social Impact Assessment (SIA) methods are used to study these consequences. The scope of SIA and the methods used have widened considerably in recent decades (Esteves et al. 2012), with SIA developing concepts and tools to assess the social impacts of development projects on people and their livelihoods (Asselin and Parkins, 2009; Tang et al., 2008; Vanclay, 2003, 2006). In the United States, the National Environmental Protection Act 1969 (NEPA) provided strong legislative impetus for the development of procedures for environmental impact assessment, and early references to SIA came in the 1970s regarding the impact of pipeline development on indigenous culture (Tang et al., 2008; Asselin and Parkins, 2009; Becker, 1997; Dietz, 1987). According to the International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA), SIA “includes the processes of analyzing, monitoring and managing the intended and unintended social consequences, both positive and negative, of planned interventions (policies, programs, plans, projects) and any social change processes invoked by those interventions” (Vanclay, 2003, p.6). SIA seeks to answer the following question: Will there be a measurable difference in the quality of life in the community as a result of the proposed action? (Barrow, 2000). SIA has also been defined as “the process of identifying the future consequences of a current or proposed action which are…

    Essay On Psychopaths

    • 725 Words
    • 3 Pages

    As stated before, there are counter arguments towards the effectiveness of treatment for psychopaths. One belief as to why treatment does not work for psychopaths is stated by the authors of this study, Harris and Rice (Harris & Rice, 2006). “They believe that the reason for their findings is that psychopaths are fundamentally different from other offenders and that there is nothing ‘wrong’ with them in the manner of a deficit or impairment that therapy can ‘fix’.
