I’m in Cleveland this week, having some much needed family time. With the holiday here in the US, postings will be on a modified schedule (I’m going to take Thursday and Friday off, so just 3 posts for the week). We’ll resume with regular posts next week, but fair warning–December is an ugly travel month […]

I just finished a really enjoyable week teaching an IPV course with forensic nurses in Indian Country. Part of the conversation was about co-occurring child abuse and child witnessing. Serendipitously, this publication showed up in my inbox this morning, and I’m working my way through it now. Ending Violence So Children Can Thrive (PDF) was just released by […]

Yesterday in class one of our participants mentioned this video, produced by the California Attorney General’s Office, as we were discussing the impact of domestic violence on children. I hadn’t seen it, but obviously I went right out and found it as soon as we were done. A good resource to bookmark for future education […]

Time once again for Articles of Note, our monthly(ish) overview of what’s new and noteworthy in the peer reviewed literature. There’s a lot to slog through this month (the Journal of Interpersonal Violence is responsible for half the content alone), but definitely some fascinating subject matter (like the relationship between economic status and sexual violence), […]

A good Monday morning to you all–I trust you had a fine weekend? This was really the 1st actual weekend Sasha and I had together in quite sometime, uninterrupted by travel or Reserve duty. We really got a chance to enjoy ourselves, too: spent a little time getting fancy and heading into the District for […]

How fantastic was this year’s IAFN conference? I’ve been going to it for I don’t know how many years, and I truly don’t recall a better one. Kudos to the IAFN staff, Board and planning committee for making it such a great one. I loved meeting so many of you, and I was blown away […]

A couple weeks ago I posted about the recently released report, Connecting the Dots. It looks like the CDC and Prevention Institute will be hosting a related Twitter Q&A, Links Among Forms of Violence. The chat will take place November 4th from 2-3pm ET, using #ViolenceLinks. Looking forward to the conversation. (h/t VAWnet)

I’m heading home from CLE today after a long weekend with my daughter and parents, so I spent way more time playing than being online. All in all, a really welcome reprieve from what will be a fairly hectic couple of weeks–prepping for and attending the IAFN conference, and then immediately heading to Europe for […]
