I know that many of you are evaluating drug-endangered children as a part of your practice (or perhaps hoping to expand your practice to include this population), so here’s a brand new resource just out: A Circle of Healing for Native Children Endangered by Drugs is a new 7-part video series available from OVC. 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!

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, […]
