We have an exciting opportunity for a role in London, that requires knowledge of domestic abuse, interventions as well as administrative and good interpersonal skills.

Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conferences are meetings where information is shared on the highest risk domestic abuse cases to ensure that all parties put in place a plan for safety.

Dr. Gail Dines spoke at this great event which provided insight, information, solutions, and a passion for building a healthy generation of kids.

It's a hard time to be a child. Teens today are bombarded with difficult and ever-changing sexual messages. As a result, it has never been more challenging to parent or mentor kids into healthy adulthood.

As their access to technology widens, young people internalize sexualized messaging which affects their behavior, attitudes, expectations, brain development, and undermines their capacity to build healthy relationships.

Best practice guidance and recommendations have targeted health in terms of understanding risk and information sharing. In practice we know that doctors face significant challenges and sometimes conflicting guidance about information sharing and patient confidentiality especially as it relates to adults with capacity where children are not involved.
