On Leadership

February 11, 2015 | Leave a Comment

Over at ReachMD they have a podcast I plan on listening to tonight while I’m hanging out in the Anchorage airport: Can Medical Leadership Be Taught? I read a lot about leadership–I’m fascinated by the topic and I think that there’s much to be learned by others’ experiences, and by studying the myriad ways in which […]

Failure (x 2)

January 14, 2015 | 1 Comment

I believe in failure in the same way I believe in reading research, being early and drinking jasmine pearl tea every morning. I don’t think success is possible without failure. There’s no way to have huge success without also having huge failure along the way. I was having trouble sleeping the other night, so I […]

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 […]

I was perusing my blog reader this morning at the uncivilized hour of 4am (because my internal alarm clock is always on east coast time), catching up on some reading since I haven’t had a whole lot of down time this week. And I came across a blog post featuring a video based on a […]

You can […]

Yesterday in class one of our participants mentioned this video, produced by the California Attorney General’s Office, as we were discussing the impact of domestic violence on children. I hadn’t seen it, but obviously I went right out and found it as soon as we were done. A good resource to bookmark for future education […]

I’m a little hesitant to post this here, because I don’t want anyone thinking that I am saying that deception detection is part of the role of the forensic healthcare provider. In the context of caring for living victims of violence, it’s not. That being said, I found this new video from the TED-Ed folks on […]

I’m knocking off early to pick up my spouse at DCA and then get ready for Kol Nidre services tonight, so I leave you with the brilliant Jessica Williams and her look at street harassment. Enjoy and have a good weekend!

On Setting Limits

September 25, 2014 | 3 Comments

I feel like I could give an entire talk on the subject of setting limits. It’s particularly relevant today, because it’s Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and I am working. In fact, I don’t know when the last time was that I took the High Holidays off. When you work for yourself, the reality […]
