Child Abuse Sexual Assault

Since Last We Spoke, 12-14-15 (Winner Edition!)

Thanks to everyone who entered last week’s giveaway. The randomizer has spoken, and #15 was chosen: Tracie Bourque, congratulations! I just need an email with your address and we’ll get your copy of the Core Curriculum for Forensic Nursing out to you. If your name wasn’t drawn, there’s a small consolation: Wolters Kluwer Health is generously offering FHO readers 20% off the list price using this link.

Today is my favorite lawyer’s birthday, so on top of the usual holiday festivities, we have birthday shenanigans to attend to, as well (this nice man is cooking for us tonight). The night out will be a treat–I worked through most of the weekend, so there wasn’t a lot of down time.  Not much reading happened either (again), but there were a few things that caught my eye since last we spoke:

Interesting take on violence and morality

No shortage of colleges and universities failing on the sexual assault front

It’s remarkably difficult for some people to internalize the nuanced idea that when we believe victims, we aren’t trying, convicting, and sentencing the accused.

Such an interesting accounting of her time at Princeton

File under awesome: living room protest

The “good guy with a gun” myth: a great (military) perspective

Chin up

Your to-do list is killing you! (well, maybe not quite)

Sandy Hook was 3 years ago today

More on how EHRs are contributing to burnout (surely not just physician, right?)

Two surefire ways to kill your presentation 

Risking everything to end FGM

Pretty awful story reported about Florida’s prison system

And finally, Physicians for Human Rights is hiring a forensic clinical consultant for their sexual violence in conflict zones program. You have to be fluent in French (the job is located in the DRC). It’s a 3 month consultancy with option to extend–looks like a very interesting gig.
