A quick post to wish everyone a happy Nurses Day (in the US, or International Nurses Day, which is Sunday–you pick). I’m heading out the door to SoCal for a couple different stops with the Marines (1st defense, then prosecution, so should be a lively week), but I managed to get a little reading done [...]
I’m starting the long trek home today, so I leave you with a quickie: an interview Terri Gross did this week with Emily Bazelon, an editor at Slate, on the issue of teen bullying today, which she covers in her book, Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and [...]
An excellent training bulletin by EVAW: for anyone who ever has questions about calling victim advocates and HIPAA protections, here are your answers (PDF). And in case you missed it, you can find Joanne Archambault and Kim Lonsway, along with David Lisak, on NPR’s Talk of the Nation, which aired yesterday (you can listen to the podcast [...]
I had a chance yesterday to download and explore the new app by PreventConnect. It’s available for iPod/iPad (and soon for Android) and will allow you to access their library of podcasts as well as their blog posts (which are full of great information, like current research and emerging issues) and videos.

The California HIV/STD Prevention Training Center has several online offerings that would be useful–particularly for new clinicians who need to shore up on basics, including the CDC Guidelines. There are online courses, archived webinars and podcasts to choose from, so it’s worth checking out the site. Take note–one of them is a video (15 minutes [...]
Yesterday, Fresh Air featured the upcoming Frontline documentary, Endgame: AIDS in Black America, which made me realize I needed to remind FHO readers that we have a clinical guide, updated last night, on this issue. Add to this a question on nPEP I received yesterday, along with the newly approved HIV home testing kit, and [...]
The Defense Centers of Excellence have a couple recent podcasts that may be of interest to FHO readers. The first is a podcast on military sexual trauma, which specifically looks at the research in this article. The other is a podcast from the recent webinar, Intimate Partner Violence: What Healthcare Providers Need to Know.
Talk of the Nation on NPR had a segment today on the secrecy often surrounding childhood sexual abuse. Among the guests was Dr. David Lisak who many of you know from his work on undetected rapists. Listen to the podcast or read the full transcript here.
I confess I was a tad jealous when I saw the tweets coming through from last year’s Roots of Change conference, sponsored by the Oregon Attorney General’s Sexual Assault Task Force and Men Can Stop Rape. Fantastic workshops and lots of great people getting to share the same space. While it doesn’t give me the [...]
I’m a little bit addicted to The Moth podcasts. If you’ve never listened to them, I encourage you to spend a little time on their site, perusing people’s stories. This week’s story is by Barbara Wiener (MP3), and it’s described on the site as, “a perfectionist finds strength and self-acceptance after an assault”. Take 12 minutes or [...]
