PDResources Reports to CEBroker for Ohio Speech Language Therapists

By Gina Ulery

The Ohio Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology now requests that licensed Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) and Audiologists submit their continuing education (CE) credits to CE Broker for electronic tracking:

CE Broker precisely spells out each licensee’s requirements and tracks your progress as you complete continuing education hours.

When CE Broker reflects you’ve met your continuing education requirements, you will not receive an audit letter from the Ohio Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology (Board). Compliance in CE Broker means you’ve already completed the electronic continuing education audit.

You can rely on CE Broker for your continuing education requirements and calculating progress towards those requirements. Subscribing and viewing your Transcript gives you access to the same data used by the Board.

Automatically Reports to CE BrokerProfessional Development Resources is proud to announce that we now report to CE Broker for Ohio-licensed SLPs and audiologists!

We have been reporting to CE Broker for Florida licensees for over 10 years now and so it was an easy choice to include Ohio licensees in the process. We report all courses licensees complete through us once per week (on Thursday) so you won’t have to wait for ASHA to submit, or worry about reporting yourself.

Professional Development Resources is approved by the Continuing Education Board of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA Provider #AAUM) to provide continuing education activities in speech-language pathology and audiology. See course page for number of ASHA CEUs, instructional level and content area. ASHA CE provider approval does not imply endorsement of course content, specific products or clincial procedures. CEUs are awarded by the ASHA CE Registry upon receipt of the CEU Participant Form from the ASHA Approved CE Provider. Please note that the completion date that appears on ASHA transcripts is the last day of the quarter, regardless of when the course was completed. Professional Development Resources is also approved by the Florida Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology (Provider #50-1635) and is CE Broker compliant (all courses are reported within 1 week of completion).

Domestic Violence: Child Abuse and Intimate Partner Violence from PDResources

Domestic Violence: Child Abuse and Intimate Partner Violence

Course exerpt from Domestic Violence: Child Abuse and Intimate Partner Violence

The essential paradox of family violence is that – while it affects so many individuals so adversely in all sectors of society – it is only minimally discussed because of the stigma and is only poorly understood and confronted by the legal, professional, and social systems that are responsible for protecting and treating victims. Individual cases of abuse frequently go undetected for many years, largely due to the shroud of shame and silence that still persists today, in spite of all efforts to bring domestic violence to light and to justice. It crosses all social and cultural boundaries, including demographic, socioeconomic, and religious strata. The status of family abuse victims has even been compared to that of individuals who had HIV/AIDS in the early 1980s when the disease was “barely recognized, hardly discussed, highly stigmatized, and often ignored or denied” (Fife and Schrager, 2012). While we have made impressive strides in the battle against HIV/AIDS in the last three decades, we have made relatively little progress in the area of family violence.

Child abuse, for example, in spite of progress in protecting the rights of children, remains a dire social issue. Rubin (2012) cites government data indicating that in just one year in the U.S., substantiated cases of child abuse totaled over 700,000 children – about 1.3% of the population of children. To make matters worse, the long-term sequelae include a wide range of serious consequences, such as physical injuries, impaired brain development, behavioral disturbances, substance use disorders, and a variety of psychological disorders. In addition, there are a number of mechanisms by which children who are abused may grow up to become abusers themselves.

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is, unfortunately, also a pervasive part of life in U.S. society. In surveys, over 35% of women and nearly 28% of men say they have been raped and/or physically assaulted and/or stalked by a current or former spouse, cohabiting partner, or date at some point in their lifetime (Black et al, 2011). Survivors of these forms of violence may experience physical injury, mental health consequences like depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and suicide attempts. Other health consequences like gastrointestinal disorders, substance abuse, sexually trans¬mitted diseases, and gynecological or pregnancy complications are also common. These findings suggest that intimate partner violence is a serious concern in mental health, criminal justice and public health.
