NSVRC is hosting a webinar with featured speaker, Dr. Megan Greeson on April 15th from 3-4:30 pm ET. The topic will be Rural SARTs: What the Research Tells Us. I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Dr. Greeson in the past–I highly encourage attending. More details after the jump:
Lots of reading this weekend, so it’s a good list. But before I put it up, a quick reminder (again), since I got a nastygram from a reader who disliked one of the articles I posted last week: just because I read it doesn’t mean I agree with it. Everything on this site, be it […]

The Northwest Network is hosting a webinar, Working with LGBTQ Survivors of Sexual Violence: Considerations for Advocates and Sexual Assault Forensic Examiners. It’s being held April 22nd from 12-1:30 PT. Register for the session here.
April is both Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Child Abuse Prevention Month: two issues central to many of our practices, both of which can take a serious toll on clinicians.

However, my kid is in town and we […]
