The Awareness Center's Daily Newsletter - February 9, 2010
I personally wish that the training provided at YU was connected to the New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault. Why not make all rabbinical student go through the required 40 hour rape victim advocate training, so that way they really know how to deal with such cases. As much as we would like to believe that Dr. David Pelcovitz knows what he is doing, the truth of the matter is that he doesn't. It's obvious be the fact that he has teamed up with David Mandel, who is the CEO of Ohel.
Please urge those at Yeshiva University to either utilize the 40 hour training program provided by The Awareness Center or the NYCAASA
Also write letters to the NY Times regarding this article and who they are using as "experts" on the topic.
