I've had to discontinue allowing people to "Join" (adding their listings to the web site) because the "spammers" have figured out a way to submit their "trash" to the listings. I'm looking for another way to allow people to join in the future. To updated or remove your listing, please contact me at Pat [ at ] ClinicalSocialWork.com 2-6-2008

You can use your web browser to search the contents of any web page for specific states, keywords, names, etc.. Here is how to do that: Click on "Edit" in the menu bar (in most web browsers), then "Find on this page" (in most web browsers) and type in what you are looking for, then click on "Find Next". Try searching for Louisville, KY and see how it works. If you want to search just for a state, for example, KY (use two capital letters) and use the "Match case" feature or the browser will find any ky on the web page.

Mental Health Intervention in Cases of Domestic Violence: A Clinical Manual - An online training manual for Mental Health Providers - This is the full text of the 132 pages manual minus a few graphics. The 1996 Kentucky General Assembly has mandated that all mental health professionals licensed or certified pursuant to KRS Chapter 309, 319, or 335 must complete a one-time three hour training in domestic violence by June 30, 1999.  See Approved Domestic Violence Training Curricula. Also see the NASW-KY web site for upcoming training dates. Also see my article "Multiplicity and Victimization: What part of `No!' don't you understand? vs. What part of you doesn't understand `No!'?" to see why I believe that most domestic violence prevention programs fail.
