On January 1, 1994, the North American Free Trade Agreement came into effect. Since then, there have been many changes to the Canadian and American economies, but the United States is still Canada’s largest and most influential trade partner. The debate about NAFTA continues to this day. To fully understand the concerns on both sides, complete the steps of the assignment below.
Select one argument for OR one argument against.
Research the overall effects of the concern about the Agreement. If the concern became reality, your analysis should include a description of how it affected trade and/or the economies of the countries involved. If the concern never fully materialized, your analysis should include an explanation as to why it never came true and what happened instead.
Prepare a business report, with headings, images where appropriate, and properly cited sources.
t. PTSD can be challenged and combatted through deep and sincere connection that allows survivors of sexual assault to feel empowered, heard, and supported. Fortunately for survivors of sexual abuse, studies have also shown that they will often be positively received when disclosing their traumatic experience to friends, family, and trusted figures (Ahrens & Campbell, 2000). Unfortunately, there will be some who perceive them negatively, blame the vent on them, and cut off communication and support (Popiel & Susskind, 1985), but by allowing for sexual abuse to be a commonplace conversation and providing safe settings for that to happen, the negative reactions be minimized further. With this positive support, female survivors of sexual abuse will begin to work through the negative effects of abuse-related shame: feeling trapped, powerless, and isolated. Survivors of sexual abuse, women in particular, need each other. By providing deep and sincere connection to those effected by sexual abuse, they will likely feel empowered to overcome the shame that envelops them, because they will feel connected, they will feel included, and they will expose the abuse that they experienced. Additional research on the effects of deep and sincere relationships among women should be conducted to better understand their influence as more is being done to provide help for survivors of sexual abuse. Providing education on the importance of supportive peers and families and the positive effects that they have on victims may decrease the amount of psychological disorders and long-term effects that sexual abuse can leave in its wake. Research should therefore be done that explores more in depth the emotion of shame and the role that it plays n recovery from sexual abuse. References Ahrens, C. E., & Campbell, R. (2000).
