I know I said I’d be posting on IAFN, but right now, all of my time here has been spent outside of sessions (staffing the NSVRC booth and in meetings). So I promise I will try to have some reports (other than that the turnout is amazing) soon. In the meantime, please note that JWI‘s National Alliance to End Domestic Abuse is sponsoring a teleconference November 5th on adolescent witnesses to family violence.
It was a busy week at the sustainability site. I’m happy to return with a new Friday Q&A, this time from IAFN Past-President, Stacey Mitchell. You can read her fantastic responses to the questionnaire here. Also this week:
- A resource many of you know from this site, The Ultimate Educator and tools for creating courses for adult learners
- One of those simple, but amazing tools that can distill down the overwhelming into the doable: Performance Vistas’s Decision Selection Matrix
- A webinar (free!) over at the Goodman Center focusing on their recent survey on using online technologies instead of in-person meetings and conferences–they’ll be discussing the good, the bad, and I’m sure, the ugly during the 1-hour event (love their stuff, BTW).
That’s it for me–I’m knocking off early to spend time with my kiddo after being gone all week. Enjoy your weekend!
JWI has announced their next teleconference: Expert Witnesses in Domestic Violence Cases–How They Can Assist Survivors. The call will be held May 21st from 12-1pm ET. Cost is $25 (unless you’re a member–then it’s free). Based on the agenda, it would appear that this call will be useful to those who would like to be experts (advocates, nurses, etc.), as well as those who would hope to use them in their cases (prosecutors, family law attorneys). Preregistration is required and space is limited.
JWI, who has produced many quality teleconferences on domestic violence topics, has recently announced their latest one: The Chris Brown/Rihanna case: What we can learn from the media’s coverage of this case to use in our work with teens and their families. The teleconference is scheduled for Tuesday, March 24th, from 12pm-1pm ET; cost is $25 for non-members (members attend for free). Pre-registration is required.
Jewish Women International is holding a teleconference March 5th (Thursday) from 12-1pm ET: GPS Technology: An Effective Tool to Monitor High-Risk Domestic Violence Offenders. Cost for non-members is $25 (free for members) and requires preregistration.
PESI is offering a webinar this Friday (2/6/09), Combat Stress and Trauma in Returning War Veterans and Their Families. The “teleseminar” (I’m not clear what this means–I suspect audio, no visual) will be held from 2:30pm-4pm ET and costs $149. CEs are available for nurses (as well as counselors, psychologists and social workers).
On February 9th, Jewish Women International’s National Alliance to End Domestic Violence is hosting a teleconference entitled, The Impact of Our Economic Downturn on Domestic Violence and Homelessness.
