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”.

The (Economic) Cost of Violence

with one comment

Everything can be looked at in economic terms, including violence. It’s important info to have at your disposal, because it can strengthen a grant proposal or negotiations with your healthcare system for an FTE or program. Enough’s been written on the subject that I figured it would be good to review the literature. I’ve chosen to focus mainly on the costs of violence against women. I’ll probably do a posting some day on youth violence, or gun violence, etc. Unless otherwise indicated, everything listed is full text (if it wasn’t available free online, you’ll have a link to free abstracts). I’m organizing these by pub date, with most recent at the beginning:

Batterers in the Workplace

leave a comment »

The Corporate Alliance to End Partner Violence has a webinar series as part of their S2 intiative–the next one is at the end of August and I’ll post on it soon. For now, check out the previous one, held at the end of May, on batterers in the workplace. The whole session is available on line, as are the materials from the presenters. You can also find a variety of info on this topic from the Articles section of the website, much of which is full-text.

UPDATE: The August session closed out before I could even get it posted. I will try and get the archived material up as soon as it’s available.

Workplace Violence: The Nurse Victim

leave a comment »

ANA has a recently updated CE offering on nurse victims of workplace violence. It’s your standard article-posttest format. Cost is $20 ($15 for ANA members) for 1.52 CEUs. The focus of this course is a bit different than what you might initially think–there’s more of a secondary trauma bent following victimization (rather than a lateral violence focus, as is often the case with a lot of these offerings).
