I’m in court this week AND trying to finish off a brand new curriculum (a project I can’t wait to talk more about–just not yet), so it was a busy weekend prepping and writing. There were a few things, though, that caught my eye in moments of downtime. So here’s what I’ve been reading since last we spoke:
I love FHO readers–the emails I received about last week’s choice were comical to say the least. If only I could get you to share them with one another [sigh]. I taught for the Army this week, and amidst some fantastic questions was the issue of bruising. Made me realize it was high time for an article focusing on the subject. There’s a new one available that looks at bruising in child abuse–seemed like a good choice for our full-text friday offering:
I’m off to teach for a few days in Nebraska, so just a quick post today– The Academy on Violence and Abuse has a new DVD available on the ACE Study. Although it’s not free (it’s currently available at an introductory rate of $45), there is a free preview available of the DVD on their home page. Considering that this video is more than 3 hours, with multiple sections perfect for using in a CE program or staff development session, it’s a good investment. More on how to get your own copy here.
Time once again for Articles of Note. This month’s is basically stuff from the 1st quarter. I included a couple of January articles I missed in earlier editions, so you’ll see articles as far back as the beginning of the year. There is so much good stuff on this list. I know I say that a lot, but this month I feel like people took a look at the “I wish people would research ___” section of my Moleskine (and yes, that really is one of the sections because as I’ve mentioned before, I’m a HUGE NERD), and said, “meh, why not?”.
The US Department of Health and Human Services has a webinar series, The Impact of Trauma on Women and Girls Across the Lifespan. Their next offering is March 27th, 2pm ET, Disaster Behavioral Health: Lessons Learned from the Past Decade. However, there are multiple archived sessions available, as well.
The National Women’s Law Center is hosting a webinar Thursday, March 22nd from 3:30-4:30 ET– Spotlight on Bullying and Harassment: The Law and One School’s Response. I’m particularly interested in the content as the parent of a pre-teen, and not just as a clinician.
There is a relatively new National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma and Mental Health, and wouldn’t you know it–they’re offering some webinars. They’re nice enough to archive them, too, so there are several now available for listening.
