    Domestic Violence Against Men: Bryan's Story by Dr. Angie Panos
    In this article, Dr. Angie Panos discusses male victims of domestic violence. "On Bryan's initial visit to see me, he complained of marital concerns and depression. It took until our third session before he told me that his wife would sometimes beat him around the face and head, even while he was asleep. A year prior, she beat him so hard that he lost all hearing in one ear. He lied to cover it up when he went to get medical treatment; he was too embarrassed to tell the truth. Now when his friends ask why he has hearing problems, he tells them it was a hunting accident." - 10-Jul-2009 - Hits: 243 - Rate This | Details
    EEOC: The Mental Health Provider's Role in a Client's Request for a Reasonable Accommodation at Work
    The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has created a new fact sheet for mental health providers, "The Mental Health Providers Role in a Clients Request for a Reasonable Accommodation at Work." This fact sheet explains to mental health providers that their clients may be able to get reasonable accommodations that help to avoid problems at work related to their conditions. It also answers questions about when a client has the right to obtain a reasonable accommodation; the types of accommodations that may be available; the kind of documentation that could help the client obtain an accommodation; and the importance of disclosing the need for an accommodation before problems occur. The EEOC enforces federal antidiscrimination laws by investigating, conciliating, mediating, and litigating charges of employment discrimination brought by members of the public. - 3-May-2013 - Hits: 201 - Rate This | Details
