ChildTrauma Academy

The CTA started as a typical center of excellence in an academic setting, initially at The University of Chicago and later at Baylor College of Medicine. Over time however, it was clear that the problems of abuse and neglect in children were much more complex and multi-dimensional in ways that our medical model was unable to address.

A medical school centered work group investigating and solving physiological problems in humans makes sense. Solving problems which involve parenting, education, the law, child protection systems, mental health, law enforcement and a host of related systems across every professional discipline is more challenging. In response to this challenge we have created a collaborative, multi-site, interdisciplinary virtual Center of Excellence, The ChildTrauma Academy.

No2abuse combines every aspect of family injustice under one roof. This site offers support for survivors of abuse as well as families going through the Family Courts; there are articles by victims of abuse and professionals who have experienced the Family Courts and the State’s approach in general to the family unit.

Parent Wonder

We parents were never taught how to be one. It’s quite a risk to be a mom or dad without being “trained”? Don’t you think?

We jump into fatherhood or motherhood without prior training. Only on-the-job training is available.

That’s why when parents have the opportunity to flock together, either at work or at home, we can’t run away from topics related to raising kids, taking care of babies, child development, and stuff like that.

In fact, that’s the whole idea how Parent Wonder started. It’s for parents to gather, share, and learn.

Very simply, Parent Wonder is here to help parents to enjoy parenthood, nurture our little bundle of joy to be the best, and not forgetting to live a happy and fulfilling life for ourselves as parents.

Indeed, it’s no easy task. But hey we can always work together… or rather play together.

Whatever it is, just remember this motto of ours:

“Helping Parents Succeed”

Women Against Domestic Violence

Women Against Domestic Violence (WADV) is an online organization that seeks to provide support and information to any adult or child who is or has been the victim of domestic abuse. We are a group of women from all over the world who have come together to put an end to violence in our homes. Each day women, men and children are living in war zones right here in our own country and very little is being done to protect them. We hope that we can make living that life and escaping that life a little bit easier.

Through communication and support the women of WADV have helped many leave abusive situations and start a new life. Your not alone in the fight there are many more out there who are willing to listen and to help. What ever you do don’t ever give up.
