Hey–want to know something we suck at? Acknowledging and managing our own trauma from this work we do. Everyone I know in this field (including myself) could probably do a better job at the whole self-care thing. And if you’re a program manager, you especially need to be concerned about this issue, because it’s critical [...]
There is *so* much in the news that is pretty fascinating. I tried to unplug this weekend, but when I was awake at 3am this morning there was plenty to keep me occupied, article-wise. What follow is just some of what I’ve been reading since last we spoke:
In light of World Elder Abuse Day here’s another great clinical resource. This one is a brief (less than 10 minute) slide presentation (narrated), Red Flags of Elder Abuse: History and Interview by Dr. Laura Mosqueda from the National Center on Elder Abuse at UC Irvine.

I had a comment by a reader recently regarding trauma-informed care and kids, in which she mentioned that trauma and trauma-informed care isn’t just limited to abuse and violence. Agreed, and in light of that comment, I figured I’d present a CE offering (for nurses) that looks at the issues in broader terms–this one from [...]
The Sexual Violence Justice Institute at MNCASA is hosting a webinar, Without a Disclosure: One Community’s Approach to Addressing Sex Trafficking of Minors. The session will be held June 26th from 12-1:30 pm CT.
Head over to VAWnet for an excellent new blog post from them on the connection between sexting and sexual violence. Make sure to spend some time clicking thru the links, particularly their special collection, Safety and Privacy in a Digital World.
First off, thanks for the lovely comments and emails from last week’s post. I heart FHO readers in a big way. Secondly, I know it’s not Monday where most of you are, but it is Monday here (albeit really, really early on Monday here). So since I’m awake, how about a run down of what [...]
