Apologies for missing December’s edition (along with just about everything else in December), but we’re back with a packed Articles of Note for this month. Some of you probably roll your eyes when I get all geeked out about what’s in the literature, but seriously…there’s some good stuff here (I know–I say this every time). […]

The pediatric offering from the Tribal Forensic Healthcare project this month is a pediatric sexual assault case review, led by Kim Nash. It will be held Monday, January 26th from 3-4:30pm ET. As with all of the webinars from this project, 1.5 CEUs are available.

I know that many of you are evaluating drug-endangered children as a part of your practice (or perhaps hoping to expand your practice to include this population), so here’s a brand new resource just out: A Circle of Healing for Native Children Endangered by Drugs is a new 7-part video series available from OVC. You can […]

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).

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 […]
