Midwest Regional Children’s Advocacy Center has a webinar coming up: Sentinel Injuries in Child Physical Abuse. I know this is late notice, as the session is being held March 24th at 1pm CT, however, it will be archived, as all of their webinars are. CMEs are available (but not, apparently, CEUs).

I will be heading on vacation soon, so this week is all about tying up loose ends so I can go away without the weight of not-yet-completed work looking over my shoulder. EVAWI is in town this week, so many of you will be here in DC; while multiple scheduling conflicts prohibit me from attending, […]

CDC just released a new publication, Preventing Multiple Forms of Violence: A Strategic Vision to Connect the Dots.  From the site: The different forms of violence—child abuse and neglect, youth violence, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, elder abuse and suicidal behavior—are interconnected and often share the same root causes. Understanding the overlapping causes of violence and […]

When I was running an errand yesterday I heard the tail end of this discussion on extending the statutes of limitations on sex crimes on the Diane Rehm Show. It’s obviously a timely topic, and I very much appreciated the fact that a defense attorney was one of the 4 guests participating, since it added […]

A whole week at home is what I have to look forward to this week, so I am taking advantage of every minute while I’m here. Lots of home cooked meals, long runs with the dog, and some entertaining at the house for me. Oh, and lots of work. The projects don’t seem to be […]

Time once again for Articles of Note–what’s new in the peer-reviewed literature that has captured my attention. And let me tell you something: there’s a lot to go through here. Some fantastic articles, a few of which are free full-text. You’re definitely going to want to spend some time on this list, because there’s much to […]

How nice to have a week at home before I hit the travel pretty hard. After a lovely (albeit brief) visit with my kid, I am looking at a week of hard core writing and editing before I depart for Fairbanks, AK next weekend. Not much downtime here. But sitting around the airport I had […]

I took a snow day yesterday, along with almost everyone else in the DC metro area. The government is still shut down today and cars are littering the roads around my neighborhood (although it stopped snowing Saturday night, as of this posting, I still haven’t seen a plow on my street). Technically, today is a […]

I know, I know–these are Monday posts, and it is distinctly not Monday. Apologies, but I spent my weekend motoring to the finish line to complete the draft of a paper for a project that has consumed my life as of late. I turned it in yesterday, so I am just starting to dig out […]
