Something for the entire multi-disciplinary team: NCPTC is offering a webinar on Understanding Adverse Childhood Experience Research. This research is central to what we know about how violence impacts health, so again, if you’re looking for a great opportunity for some team continuing education, here’s a great one.
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. Note that you must register with QuantiaMD to access [...]
