For your viewing pleasure: Dr. Nadine Burke Harris talks about childhood trauma and its impact on health…There’s a lot to talk about here.
Sorry for the absence at the end of last week–the combination of making my way home from Anchorage and finally succumbing to the crud that’s been going around for weeks put me down for the count. But I’m back on my feet, to some extent, and the incredible cold this weekend had me happily hanging […]
I’m in Alaska this week, hanging out with some of my favorite people. As you know, I don’t work on planes (although I’m seriously productive in airport clubs), which left me plenty of time to read over this past week (if you’re playing along at home I was DCA-CLT-SAT-CLT-MGM-CLT-DCA-IAD-DEN-ANC over the past 7 days). That’s […]

Thanks to Sheila Early for this: Massachusetts General Hospital and the Massachusetts Medical Society have published Human Trafficking: Guidebook on Identification, Assessment and Response in the Healthcare Setting (PDF). It was published this fall, and although there are a few sections that are state specific, I would recommend this for clinicians regardless of geography. It’s worth […]
There’s a new website, See the Signs that focuses on recognizing and responding to domestic and sexual violence. There are three online courses offered on the site: one about intervening to prevent domestic and sexual violence (created by the Ohio Domestic Violence Network and the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence); one about having conversations with teens about healthy […]
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 […]
