2 Discussion Board replies to the topic


you are required to reply to 2 other classmates’ threads. Each reply must be at least 200 words with at least 1 citation in current APA format. Responding to a classmate’s post requires both the addition of new ideas and analysis. A particular point made by the classmate must be addressed and built upon by your analysis in order to move the conversation forward. Thus, the response post is a rigorous assignment that requires you to build upon posts to develop deeper and more thorough discussion of the ideas introduced in the initial posts. As such, reply posts that merely affirm, restate or unprofessionally quarrel with the previous post(s) and fail to make a valuable, substantive contribution to the discussion will receive appropriate point deductions.


Acceptable sources include peer-reviewed journal articles from the Liberty University’s Online Library (ProQuest, ERIC, EBSCO, JSTOR) and other scholarly works to include volumes or books (as well as Scripture).



Topic: Why do they do it?

For this discussion board, you will take on the role of a policy adviser for the Department of Corrections in your local jurisdiction. At a community meeting, someone asks you to explain the various factors that might explain why sex offenders do the things they do. Your thread must discuss a competing theory from the textbook readings (Psychological, Psychiatric, Social Structure, Social Process, and Social Conflict explanations) by providing an example that community members will relate to and understand. Be sure to support your answer with peer-reviewed journal articles or other scholarly work.
