Wouldn’t it be convenient if we just had a check off list for figuring out whether the person we want to enter a relationship with could turn abusive? Well, it’s not quite that easy, but there are some indicators of risks that the criminal justice system can use to try to determine how high the risks of danger are for person involved in perpetrating domestic violence. This tool helps courts and counsellors look at a situation and what it could turn into in the future. Is this magic? Is it the cure-all for DV? Can it help eliminate homicides? We will talk risk assessment, how it can help, what the weaknesses are, and what the latest research shows on Saturday with Connie Sponsler-Garcia of the Battered Women’s Justice Project. She’s worked for more than 30 years as an advocate for adult and child victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and domestic trafficking; she’s run a battered women’s shelter; and she served on the Department of Defense Domestic Violence Task Force. She helps combine fatality review findings and community safety assessment methodology in Arizona and is a consultant to the Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative.
We will discuss how to evaluate reasonable risk and think outside-the-box to create workable solutions.
As usual, we will also discuss two delicious recipes for sharing. The "safe" recipe will be Spinach Ricotta Pasta, and the "adventure" recipe will be Ham and Black-Eyed Peas Stew.
The next generation doesn’t have an easy time of it. The number of At Risk Youth is on the rise, Every year more than 700,000 children are abused or neglected, and each day 1,200 children are removed from their families to enter foster care. (American Institutes for Research). In 2000, more than 4 million youth between ages 16-24 were neither working nor in school and 25% are estimated to be parents. Each year, more than 20,000 teens leave the foster-care system with little transitional support. In 1997, 350,000 young men between the ages of 18-24 were inmates in federal and state prisons and local jails. The population of 16-24 year olds is expected to grow at an above-average rate over the next decade and most of the increase will be among blacks, Latinos, and young immigrants.
The fight to give these children a chance, some stability is also a major topic and more people are getting jobs, creating organizations, doing what they can to help the leaders of tomorrow. Tonight we have a special all male panel who will be talking about their experiences with at risk youth.
Well, here we are at the midway point of 2014. Have you been assessing your accomplishments for the year so far? Or are you frustrated that you haven't made as much progress with your plans, your ideas or the changes you wanted to make?
Today is a good day to stop and assess where you stand. Did you overcome any obstacles or did they stop you completely in your tracks? Did you make a plan and accomplish any forward steps, or are you still stuck at the starting point?
It's important to make progress, but it all goes back to the two most important things in this process: (1) You must figure out what it is that you really want. No one can do that for you; and (2) You have to keep moving forward; making progress toward your vision.
Join Teresa Beeman this morning for 30 minutes of discussion on a "Mid-Year Assessment: Empowered or Stuck?"
This show is brought to you by the Center for Empowered Women. It can be heard every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 am Eastern time.

This needs assessment and absorb activity is being done for EDU652: Instructional Design & Delivery. The instructor is Dr. Deborah Moerland. A needs assessment is a systematic approach to studying the state of knowledge, ability, interest, or attitude of a defined audience or group involving a particular subject (McCawley, 2009). This needs assessment is being conducted so that the interested person can verify her own level of knowledge and skill, interests, opinions, and learning habits and preferences (McCawley, 2009). Collecting and analyzing needs assessment data will allow her to identify what she already knows and answer questions about what she does not known (McCawley, 2009). Creating and Implementing an Absorb-Type Activity Needs Assessment will discuss what the writer knows, what she wants to know, what she is trying measure, determine, and define; how she will collect and record information, how she will report the collected information, and why this needs assessment was conducted.

Trust is important, but it is also dangerous. It is important because it allows us to form relationships with others and to depend on others—for love, for advice, for help with our plumbing, or what have you—especially when we know that no outside force compels them to give us such things. But trust also involves the risk that people we trust will not pull through for us; for, if there were some guarantee that they would pull through, then we would have no need to trust them. In this context, trust is also dangerous. What we risk while trusting is the loss of the things that we entrust to others, including our self-respect, perhaps, which can be shattered by the betrayal of our trust. Tune in this week as Nancy Herold and I discuss how trusting requires: - that we be vulnerable to others (vulnerable to betrayal in particular); - that we think well of others, at least in certain domains; - and that we be optimistic that people are, or at least will be, competent in certain respects. Tonight’s show proposes that ‘at our core’ there is a trust that knows no mistakes, no victims, only lessons and growth. To have a reciprocal relationship with the world around us, trust is the lubricant. Listen in as we discuss that trust and love are the natural states for us to evolve.
Amy Salls serves as Director of Population Health Strategy for DST Health Solutions. In this episode, Amy draws on more than 20 years of experience in datat analysis and healtcare informatics to unpack the three R's of risk. Reinsurance, Risk Corridors, and Risk Adjustment.
