Sexual Assault

Abused and Betrayed

In case you missed any of it, NPR has been airing a series on adults with intellectual disabilities and sexual violence: Abused and Betrayed. They’ve been a great listen, with the longest being just 12 minutes; too easy to fit into a team meeting with time for robust discussion afterward:

Still to air: How Prosecutors Changed The Odds To Start Winning Some Of The Toughest Rape Cases
(1/16); Morning Edition: Therapists Nora Baladerian and Karyn Harvey talk about the violence in the lives of their clients (1/18); and All Things Considered: Self-advocates speak–thoughtfully–of the effects of sexual violence (1/18).

Our first offering in the FHO store, Injury Following Consensual Sex is now available. If you haven’t ordered a copy yet, you can find it here
