Confronting Violence, Improving Women’s Lives

The exhibit is on the 1st floor of the Strauss Health Sciences Library and is on display November 19, 2018 to January 5, 2019.

Confronting Violence Poster

Activists and reformers in the United States have long recognized the harm of domestic violence and sought to improve the lives of women who were battered. During the late 20th century, nurses took up the call. With passion and persistence, they worked to reform a medical profession that largely dismissed or completely failed to acknowledge violence against women as a serious health issue. Beginning in the late 1970s, nurses were in the vanguard as they pushed the larger medical community to identify victims, adequately respond to their needs, and work towards the prevention of domestic violence. This is their story.

Pictorial atlas

Pictorial Atlas of Acupuncture: An illustrated Manual of Acupuncture Points

Knowledge of the exact status and relevance of acupuncture points is an essential tool for the acupuncture therapist.  The novice may worry that he will have to learn all the acupuncture points by heart.  But experience shows that only about one third of these points at most are actually used in treatment.  For this reason the value of an atlas that provides information about a currently important, but seldom used, point cannot be stressed enough.

This comprehensive atlas, beautifully produced with great graphic clarity, is the result of unique collaboration between German and Chinese experts.

The atlas is also noteworthy for the courage of the editors, authors, and the publisher in limiting the indications of the various points to their application uses.  This is an area in which the importance of the points has undergone great diversification.  These indications have been examined in a meticulous discussion process and redundant or dubious findings discarded.

This pioneering initiative means a substantial gain in practical use, which can only benefit the reader in the practice of acupuncture.
