This week’s Full-Text Friday offering addresses the issue of multiple perpetrator rapes of adolescent girls (sad commentary: I can’t combine those words in the title of this post because of the disgusting trolls that come out of the woodwork).

If you aren’t looking to your state anti-violence coalitions for continuing education, you’re missing some great opportunities. State coalitions do a lot of training, and many are putting on webinars and online courses that have relevance far beyond their state’s borders.

This weekend was all about the big promotion, with family descending upon DC and filling every corner of our tiny dollhouse of a home.

Here we go: vacation is behind us and a modified (but still busy) travel season resumes for our household. Happily it’s not me on the road this week, but after taking a week off, I can hardly corral my to-do list. Always a trade-off, that whole taking time off thing. Hopefully US readers enjoyed a […]

Time once again for Articles of Note, our monthly overview of what’s new and noteworthy in the peer-reviewed literature. There’s plenty to check out for June–as always, links lead to PubMed abstracts. Contact me if you’d prefer this in a Word doc.

Did you have a fantastic weekend? We did for sure–a glorious, not-too-hot one in the DC metro area.
