Worthwhile Read: Connecting the Dots

Screen Shot 2014-10-02 at 5.59.42 PMThe CDC and the Prevention Institute published Connecting the Dots: An Overview of the Links Among Multiple Forms of Violence recently, but it didn’t seem to get much in the way of fanfare when it was released. That being said,  I think it’s an important read. Our patients frequently experience multiple forms of violence in their lives, and understanding the overlap allows for more trauma-informed care and more targeted assistance. What’s nice about this report is that it also comes with its own slide deck for teaching purposes, so this is a great resource to bookmark for future use.
