High Tide Author Screening Room

2020 was a year dominated by troubling events—a global pandemic with ominous and fluctuating stay-at-home orders, a contentious presidential election, emotionally charged cases of social/civil unrest, and vast economic uncertainty for many Americans.

Amy’s timely insights will offer you hope and encouragement as you navigate these stressful times.

Amy is the author of Human Rights Committees: From Compliance to Cultural Commitment, Scanning the Horizon: Using Organizational Data to Prevent Abuse and Neglect of People with Intellectual Disabilities and From Inquiry to Insight: Guided Discussions for Preventing Abuse and Neglect of Persons with Cognitive Disabilities.
