Have I ever gotten a pic while working with Dr. Chris St. Vil’s Human Behavior class at UB North Campus?? Nope. Pic of this awesome eval will have to suffice.

Skyping Dr. Angie Moe’s Family Violence class because Western Michigan is a LONG drive on short notice 😉 So happy to be planning a trip out there soon to meet her (and her students) in person!

69th Class of the Niagara County Law Enforcement Academy at Niagara University. LE students ask *very* different questions than MSW and Family Counseling students; an interesting two hours spent with these brave men – and woman – and a great way to end the semester!

Education is the Key

20160407_181458I spent part of this morning with Dr. Noelle St. Vil, Assistant Professor of Social Work at UB. Dr. St. Vil is interviewing survivors of intimate partner violence as a part of her work, “An Exploratory Study of Interpersonal Relationship Trauma Among Survivors of IPV”. The study will be used, in part, to develop aftercare services for survivors. I was extremely happy to be able to help, even in a small way, with this extremely worthwhile project.
