I’m headed to the 216 for some quality family time, to practice a little self-care of my own in the wake of some very trying times. I leave you with this blog post over at Psychology Today by Olga Trujillo: Getting Through Sex Abuse Scandals and Depression.
With all the press surrounding the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case, it’s hard not to comment. But quite frankly, there’s plenty that’s already been said (and in some cases, said really well), so I’ll leave it at this: in my 16 years of taking care of sexual assault patients, I have yet to meet the victim that [...]

I’m so happy to be able to return with a wrap up from the sustainability site. Feels like it’s been too long, but with all the travel, it sometimes gets the short straw. Aside from a brief mention of our current giveaway, this week also featured: *Some available online courses on leadership excellence (complete with [...]
The APA has posted proposed revisions to the DSM that might be of interest. Comments can be submitted until April 20th should you be so inclined (the DSM-V is due to be published in 2013). Rewriting the DSM has not been without controversy, thus far.
There’s some good stuff over at the Sustainability site this week. I hope you’ll check it out: *A new blog in town! NSVRC has added the Engaged Bystander blog. Now the Sustainability blog has a friend:) *An article that had me alternately laughing and a little embarrassed: 6 words non-profits should avoid (for all you grant [...]
