Dear Engaged Bysander: I recently heard the keynote from the annual MASOC/MATSA conference and was moved by the research Ray Knight presented. I know that sounds odd to be “moved” by research, but I was. It was a fabulous presentation and what I loved about it was that he challenged us to base our prevention programs on research evidence – more than just good ideas.
Dear Engaged Bystander: I was hooked on this new journal article because they created their program, Engaging Bystander Approach (ERB) with the understanding that it was essential to add the word “engaging” because the term bystander, alone may conjure a passive or negative image of men and women who witness a problem and do nothing.
Dear Engaged Bystander: What happened at your thanksgiving table this year? This year, our family gathering was the usual warm chaos, MUCH smaller (14 instead of 24), and lots of attention on the first great grandchild of this next generation.
Dear Engaged Bystander: When I read a study that says by "asking about pregnancy coercion and intimate-partner violence can reduce their incidence" I have to sit up and take notice. Below is a brief overview of this recently released study.
Dear Engaged Bystander: If you are like me, you have a stack of research papers you have been meaning to read all summer. I wanted to create a short series of my favorite research articles to share with you and I hope to keep them all to under 500 words.
So this is the first in a series of reviews of key research. I hope you find them helpful.
