Child Abuse DV/IPV Sexual Assault

Since Last We Spoke, 9/16/13

I awoke in Japan this Tuesday morning (way too early) to news from my spouse that all of our friends are okay and accounted for at the Navy Yard, so I am grateful for that blessing, and also angry and horrified at the violence in a place where I have spent a significant amount of time professionally. There are plenty of links to the shooting and there will be much to read in its aftermath, so I am going to forgo that here, and share instead what I’ve been reading since last we spoke:
