I know it’s been quiet here for a few days. The truth is that usually when that happens it’s the migraines to blame and not the workload or the travel (although in fairness I’ve gone from Orlando to Charlottesville to Ft Bliss in El Paso, TX since my last post, so the travel has been […]

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). It was published this fall, and although there are a few sections that are state specific, I would recommend this for clinicians regardless of geography. It’s worth […]

I am racing right now, trying to get everything done, as are many of you, no doubt. I had a great time in New Orleans, and now I’m off to Orlando to spend some quality time with the Army JAGs. I was traveling this weekend, and then trying to organize a bit before this next […]

For those of you looking for continuing education on strangulation, there’s another session coming up, this one a webinar offered by BWJP. It’ll be held on 12 December from 2-3:30pm CT. Dr. Bill Smock will be one of the featured speakers. Registration must happen by 11 December to participate. This will be a good one […]

I hope everyone who was celebrating had an enjoyable holiday–we definitely did. Our week was filled with too much food and lots of time with friends and family, so my battery was recharged a bit. I’m back home now, but only for a minute. This week I’m heading to New Orleans where I hope to […]

There are three online courses offered on the site: one about intervening to prevent domestic and sexual violence (created by the Ohio Domestic Violence Network and the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence); one about having conversations with teens about healthy […]

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 […]
