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 […]

Greetings from Montgomery, AL, from where I am currently trying to escape after a brief lecture at Maxwell AFB. If you’ve been playing along at home, you know that I have managed to hit all 4 time zones in the continental US over the past week, and I’m on day 8 of travel, which is making […]

In the wake of the Ray Rice video there has been some spectacular reading dominating my Twitter feed. Certainly more than I can keep up with. I recommend checking out the entries under the hashtags #WhyIStayed and #WhyILeft (and also #WhenILeft). They would make a great jumping off point for talks with your team about the realities […]

I’m on vacation today, so I leave you with this talk by Rachel Lloyd from GEMS in NYC:  

Hey, Toronto readers: I’m coming to your fair city for a wee bit of relaxation this weekend. You all know how much I love a good meal, so feel free to send your food suggestions my way. We’ll be there for the (US) holiday weekend, so I’ve basically got 3 days on the ground. I’m fortunate enough […]

Ironically, I am in South Carolina today, teaching at a course focusing in part on investigating and prosecuting domestic violence. I tell you this because the Charleston, SC Post and Courier has just published an expose on domestic violence in the state, Till Death Do Us Part. The series, a result of an 8-month investigation, […]

The news of Robin Williams’ death was received with great sadness in my household–I have been a big fan through the years (I remember listening to his comedy albums in high school, and Good Will Hunting is among my favorite movies). The insidiousness of depression, it’s profound. On LinkedIn this morning Bob Sutton shared a […]

I haven’t posted a TED talk in awhile, but I was interested in this one, in part because of how I make my living and also because my spouse and I will be doing a session at this year’s IAFN conference on being an effective public speaker (p. 19: The Art and Science (and Law) of […]
