Vicarious/secondary trauma is one of those issues we sometimes give lip service to, but generally do a lousy job of actually addressing in forensic nursing. But for those of you looking into the eyes of team members and seeing burn out staring back at you, perhaps now is a good time to start exploring (or exploring further) the issue of secondary trauma.

The SAFE TA project is hosting a free webinar on victim privacy October 13th from 2-3:30 ET. Susan Chasson, an IAFN past president and practicing SANE, and Jessica Mindlin, an attorney from the Victim Rights Law Center and NSVRC advisory board member, will be the featured presenters.
 
You can find all the info at the Forensic Health site, where I posted session and registration details this morning.

Welcome everyone to our new blog! The blog will be a regularly updated source for a wide variety of information related to sustaining (and growing) SANE programs, so I hope you will bookmark this page (or add us to your RSS feed) and check back regularly. We will be mining the vast online world of nonprofit and healthcare management, public policy and forensic education information to bring you accessible (and usually free) resources to keep your SANE programs healthy. What will make this site even better, though, is your feedback and participation.

One of the frequent recommendations we make when we work with struggling sites is to make yourself visible. So many programs are relatively unknown to the surrounding community; getting the word out about available services is really critical. A website is one simple way to make that happen. But does your website really convey the message (or portray the image) you want?

Happy 2010! I thought I'd start the year off with a positive spin, a new free eBook from Seth Godin. It's called What Matters Now (PDF), and I love the way it was created--multiple short essays and other pieces from great minds in diverse fields. It's sort of an anti-resolution manifesto. Less "try", more "do". A great guide for how we might approach the new year.

Over at RWJF's Future of Nursing blog, Dean Marla Salmon, from the University of Washington School of Nursing poses the question, what do we need to teach the nurse of tomorrow? This is a pretty important question, and one we have discussed frequently here at the sustainability project.

Check out this great (and short) post over at the Leadership at Work blog about why leaders should lighten up in the face of this grim economy. With grant funds being cut and more hospitals decreasing their support of SANE programs, I whole-heartedly agree with the advice he gives.

Truth in advertising. We really need to work harder to make sure these aren't the words we live by, don't you think?
