Last week Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy and first lady Cathy Malloy hosted a two-day conference called “Reimagining Justice” that invited people from around the country to explore the impact of crime and mass incarceration. As someone who works on juvenile justice reform in Connecticut, I was delighted to see the Malloys’ leadership on these issues. But I was also torn.

Resources pave a brighter future for students in need [STLToday.com]

For the last four years I’ve been teaching in what the Post-Dispatch recently called one of Missouri’s “worst-performing schools.” Mike Petrilli from the Thomas B. Fordham Institute was quoted as saying that “if you have schools that are broken forever or are dysfunctional, or are part of a dysfunctional school system, I’m just skeptical that sending a little money is going to bring the kind of change states need.” I disagree.

Summer Isn’t Fun For Everyone [PsychCentral.com]

Not every child looks forward to summer vacation the same way that their peers do. Not every child counts down those last few minutes until the final school bell rings for the year. While the majority of their peers are looking forward to a summer of grilling out, family vacations, and lazy afternoons by the pool – the abused child leaves school knowing that the next three months of their life are going to be anything but fun and relaxing.

Looking for adult primary care practices using ACE

Hello, Our health system is looking to pilot the ACE questionnaire in an adult primary care clinic and one of our OB clinics. I am looking for practices where the ACE has already been implemented in these types of adult clinics. I have been doing my own research but have found it very difficult to find anything other than research studies that have been conducted in such settings.

Just a reminder, the Summit is half-way through now, and I know some of you like developing your own stockpile of resources. Not only are the sessions available for download but most come with a variety of "free gifts" -- even some PDF books. Here's the link again , if you need it.

Unfortunately, there wasn't an initial list of such things before...Read More...
