Greetings from Montgomery, AL, from where I am currently trying to escape after a brief lecture at Maxwell AFB. If you’ve been playing along at home, you know that I have managed to hit all 4 time zones in the continental US over the past week, and I’m on day 8 of travel, which is making […]

1in6 is hosting a webinar next week, Working with Men Sexually Abused in Childhood. It will be held September 17th from 10:30-12pm PT. Click through for the description; this one is so relevant to the work we do in all aspects of our clinical world, so I encourage you to check it out.

Futures Without Violence and the American Academy of Pediatrics have a free, online learning module, Addressing the Bigger Picture in Pediatric Settings: Adverse Childhood Experiences. The session is available for CEU/CME credit. Click through for details:

The National Academy of Sciences released their book, Confronting Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Sex Trafficking of Minors in the United States: A Guide for the Healthcare Sector. This is based on the 2013 report of the same name, but is specific to clinicians. The download is available for free, but site registration is required.

Why Social Media for Injury and Violence Prevention (IVP) kicks off the series September 17th from 1-2pm ET. Click […]

Time once again for Articles of Note, my list of the things that have caught my attention in the latest round of peer-reviewed journals. This month has quite a lot to explore, but as always, this list isn’t comprehensive (and it’s subject to my specific interests). The majority of links take you to the PubMed […]

Hey, Toronto readers: I’m coming to your fair city for a wee bit of relaxation this weekend. You all know how much I love a good meal, so feel free to send your food suggestions my way. We’ll be there for the (US) holiday weekend, so I’ve basically got 3 days on the ground. I’m fortunate enough […]

The newest edition of Global Health: Science and Practice is out and it includes an article by the Senior Advisor to the Secretary of State and Ambassador-at-Large Luis CdeBaca and Jane Sigmon, former Director of OVC, now at the U.S. State Department’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (I’ve posted their annual TIP […]

I’m on my way to the NAC (for the 2nd of 3 trips down there in a month)–we’re kicking off the inaugural run of a fantastic (I hope) interactive testimony course for SANEs and prosecutors. Considering we started working on this about 18 months ago, it’s exciting to finally see it come to fruition. And […]

OJJDP just released a new resource: Recognizing When a Child’s Injury or Illness Is Caused by Abuse (PDF). It’s written for law enforcement, so this is really more of a SART or MDT resource, than a clinical text.
