DV/IPV Sexual Assault

Since Last We Spoke, 8-31-15

I can hardly wrap my brain around the fact that it’s the last day of August, and save for a quick jaunt to Miami with my spouse coming up, this year really has been non-stop. That’s not really like us. Travel has always been important, but this year has made it tough to schedule, what with our respective new gigs. I’m looking forward to having more control over my calendar (December), but I am not complaining, and feel immensely grateful for even the briefest opportunity to get away. I spent a lot of time planning the upcoming trip, but there were some other things that caught my eye, as well. Here’s what I was checking out since last we spoke:

I love reading about how writers write

Maybe we shouldn’t be following our passion

Next time we think she should just call the cops

When the tragedy you’re covering is your own

The Red Zone

How being female shapes the view from the bench

It’s actually the Bechdel-Wallace test

Maverick researchers have long argued that much of what gets published in elite scientific journals is fundamentally squishy

On the 10th anniversary

Anyone can become more trauma-informed

Such a loss, but a lovely, brief tribute  (his books are a wonderful read)

A wry (sometimes challenging) read on grief

Some nice publicity for the SAFESTAR program (even if it’s not completely accurate)
