Child Abuse DV/IPV Sexual Assault

Since Last We Spoke 4/7/14

Lots of reading this weekend, so it’s a good list. But before I put it up, a quick reminder (again), since I got a nastygram from a reader who disliked one of the articles I posted last week: just because I read it doesn’t mean I agree with it. Everything on this site, be it articles in posts like this or webinar offerings or full-length reports, should be read with the understanding that, unless it is accompanied by a clear endorsement from me, is not actually an endorsement. This site is for information sharing. FHO readers are a smart bunch–you guys will decide what is relevant and what is valid for your own practices. That being said, here’s what I’ve been reading since last we spoke:

For the past 2 years I have been practicing the art of “The Lost art of the Unsent Angry Letter, NYT. To date I have complied at least 75 letters hidden away in my computer, like Carrie’s letters from Big. My favorite quote is, “That process alone was a way of exercising self-control — twice over”. This process has taught me self control and given me a sense of empathy both for myself and the letter’s intended recipient. Thank you for sharing, Jen…… jacqui

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your willingness to share such varied information with us! THANK YOU!!!
