tion models asserts that rehabilitations only provide temporary solutions to problems since when influenced by intervention, a person feels an obligation to take part in the process they are not willing to (Scarpitti, Nielsen & Miller, 2009). Advocates of non-intervention models opt to use more personal approach such as seeking medical help without being excluded from the society. This enables a person to experience change while being exposed to the problems they are required to shun (Scarpitti, Nielsen & Miller, 2009).
In an argument by Scarpitti, Nielsen & Miller (2009) male inmates are exposed to many difficulties as compared to their male counterparts. The authors attribute this trend to the physical nature of men (Scarpitti, Nielsen & Miller, 2009). This natural difference influences their perception by prison police. Prisons holding women are provided with resources that are absent in male prisons. In addition, women are subjected to simpler tasks. In men, prison life hardens their personality as well as character. This is different from women who experience behavior change. Scarpitti, Nielsen & Miller (2009) assert that men develop an opposition character after their life after prison.
Mediated violence is a significant behavior influencer. It proven that the exposure to extreme graphic content creates an aggressive character in people. The effects are more significant in children who their continued exposure to mediated violence have negatively affected their social behavior. In an argument by Scarpitti, Nielsen & Miller (2009) this can be evidenced by considering the deteriorated behavior and violent behavior in teenagers. The media glorifies violence to the extent that a society develops a positive perception on violence. The situation is made worse considering that mediated violence exists also in programs that are intended for children. Children are exposed to violence as a tender which makes it easy to develop aggression.
