We have recently had some changes here at the Sexual Abuse Blog with Jon Brandt stepping down from active blogging. Myself and David would like to take this opportunity to thank Jon for all his hard work on the blog over the last number of years. Jon's blogs have always been insightful, critical and pertinent. We wish him luck for the future and will always positively receive any future blogs that he would like to submit. So farewell, rather than goodbye!
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome a new blogger joining our team, Dr Alissa Ackerman (Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, California State University, Fullerton). Alissa research's sex offender policy, management, sexual violence prevention and restorative as well as transformative justice with sex offenders. Myself and David are looking forward to blogging with Alissa and looking forward to the new perspective that she will bring to the team.
We have a blog on the recent ATSA conference coming later this week and some interesting as well as diverse blogs in the pipeline.
Kieran, David and Alissa.
