NOTE: As of late January 2021, I am in the process of updating this site–mostly expanding the case study materials plus adding new topics or subpages. I am also reorganizing the previous page structure some, removing or merging pages for less duplication and easier access. This means some links to other posts or pages in this site may not work for a while, but I will take care of that as soon as possible.
I will remove this notice when I’ve completed this phase.
Meanwhile, thanks for your understanding, as I have many gaps to fill and excesses to edit.

I occasionally post articles with essential concept frameworks and/or practical skills. This pinned post serves as an index to the post titles, with a summary and link.
I will also note here that this companion website provides important resources for deep-dive learning on topics related to deconstructing situations of harm and (re)constructing safe and sustainable teams, projects, organizations, partnerships, and larger collaborations. Production of the visual bibliographies is a long-term project for me, so, I will be completing layers as time allows.
I select resource materials to give a wide range of genres or information types, and at varying levels from introductory to academic. After I’ve chosen items, I post their title, author or developer, copyright or release date details, and links to publisher or producer since these websites often have details unavailable elsewhere. As I acquire the items, I add scans and additional details, for example, a soundtrack list or important background information on the production. This is all part of a plan leading to my writing essays and developing information tools that analyze the context and content of the items, and tie them in with topics in the “Do Good Plus Do No Harm” training series.

Field Guide “Essentials” — A Series of Three-Frame Tutorials on Dealing with Systemic Abuse. This “Essentials” post has a series of three-frame tutorials, or “Threetorials,” as I have sometimes called them. In the 10 Threetorials posted, the first slide usually gives a definition of the concept framework, or a summary quote about it. The second slide usually gives some kind of visual image, chart, or graphic, plus a few details. (Note my Fotolia licensing information at the bottom of such slides.) The third slide expands on some of the most important points in the first two slides.
