Integrating Injury & Violence Prevention

leave a comment »

STIPDA, ASTHO, and NACCHO have several archived injury prevention webcasts, 2 of which might appeal: Integrating Injury and Violence Prevention with Maternal and Child Health Programs, and Integrating Injury and Violence Prevention with Healthy Again Initiatives. They are free to access–the archive site also includes a variety of supporting articles and other materials for the maternal-child session that are probably worth perusing, particularly for those of you working in the area of abusive head trauma (scroll to mid-page to find them).

Trafficking: New Offerings from the Week that Was

leave a comment »

Over the past week there have been several new offerings related to human trafficking:

Phil Borges has an interview on his blog with Rachel Lloyd, founder of GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services). “Rachel told me that historically law enforcement in our country has punished the victims of the sex industry—the vulnerable and exploited adolescent girls that are coerced and trafficked into the trade.  She said that labeling and jailing them as ‘teen prostitutes’ instead of what they are–exploited and trafficked children– while ignoring the 30 to 40 year old men that sell and buy these girls has been a crime in itself.”

Listen to the 8+ minute audio file here.

Digital Safety: Cyberstalking

leave a comment »

I love when readers (especially readers abroad) send me links I never would have run across otherwise: this summer in London, the UK hosted their inaugural digital safety conference, which “brought together thought leaders, policy makers, legal professionals, law enforcement agencies, government representatives, educators, industry leaders and those committed to protecting civil liberties to consider the health, reputation and environment of the digital world”.

Weekly Wrap-Up @ the Sustainability Blog

with one comment

Sorry for the lack of wrap-up last week–things were fairly hectic and the Sustainability site got a bit neglected. We’re back this week, though, and you’ll find some good stuff there:

Today’s a call day for me, and I’m stuck in my windowless office at the DOVE Program. But that may be okay, because it is a cold and rainy day here in the CLE. Hope it’s a bit more hospitable wherever you are…

Council of Daughters

with one comment

With all of the news focusing on Roman Polanski, it seems like a good time to post this:

GEMS, the organization featured in the documentary Very Young Girls (previous post here), has a new initiative: The Council of Daughters. It’s a campaign “to strengthen laws that protect victims, encourage Americans to support girls empowerment initiatives at the local level, increase support for recovery services, and bring this urgent issue into schools, offices, dorms, places of worship and other community spaces.”

Statistics and Juries

leave a comment »

Today’s post is an incredibly wonky one–many of you will bail right off the bat, and of those of you who decide to check out this video, several of you won’t make it past the 2 minute mark. So what is the fascinating offering I’m posting? It’s actually a session from TED that I find to be really interesting: how statistics fool juries. If you don’t feel like you can commit to the full video, skip ahead to the 14 minute mark, where the reason for my posting the video becomes clear.

DV Service Models

leave a comment »

The Family Justice Center Alliance has their 1st online learning course available on their site: an orientation to co-located domestic violence service models (a la the family justice center model). It’s a nicely done, narrated video/slide presentation, and it’s a great tool for anyone looking at providing multiple victim services under one roof.
