February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month, and the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence has several things happening of interest. Along with some multimedia activities (you can check out all of the events here), what always makes my nerd heart beat a little quicker is the special collection.
The Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance has a ew toolkit available on Reproductive and Sexual Coercion. Do not let the fact that it says that it’s a toolkit for advocates dissuade you form spending some quality time with it–this is a very thorough resource and there’s much in here from which healthcare providers […]
Apologies for the broken links–they should be fixed now. Thanks to all who sent me messages. Back on the road this week–San Antonio and then on to Montgomery, AL. I was a tad spoiled, being off the road for a whole month. That’s over now–I’ll get home late Friday night only to turn around and […]
Writing this in anticipation of tomorrow’s massive storm–we’re only supposed to get the tail end of it, but Sasha’s trying to fly to San Diego from Baltimore for the child abuse conference (she’ll be teaching multiple sessions on Tuesday for those of you who are hoping to run into her), so we’re a tad concerned.

My new job means a 30 minute commute (if I’m lucky) each way. That’s long enough to give me some NPR time, and the ride home coincides with Fresh Air, one of my faves. Today, as I was hauling myself into the District for an appointment, I was able to listen to a really fascinating interview.
The National Judicial Education Project has an upcoming webinar: The Intersection of Stalking and Sexual Assault. The session will be held January 28th from 3-4:30pm ET. Click through for details:
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). […]
This weekend was not a play weekend. On the contrary, having a new gig, with older work still in the queue means nights and weekends are work time for now. Not complaining–it just is. And also, perhaps, the reason this column may be a bit short this week. Still, I did manage to read a […]
IOM has released a free Powerpoint presentation about sex trafficking of minors in the US. It’s based on their report published in September, and along with the slide deck are a variety of resources, including guides for several disciplines (healthcare, legal, victim services). Worth a look if you’re doing any training or trying to get […]

The National Health Collaborative on Violence and Abuse is hosting a webinar, Campus Sexual Assault: What Clinicians Need to Know. The session will be held January 26th from 1-2:30pm ET. CMEs are available for physicians, (but no CEUs for nurses, sadly). It’s an excellent speaker lineup, so I would encourage you to check it out. […]
