Articles of Note Child Abuse DV/IPV Elder Abuse/Neglect Sexual Assault

Articles of Note: June Edition

Time once again for this month’s Articles of Note. These are a selection from peer-reviewed journals that feel particularly relevant to our practice. Remember, it’s in no way a comprehensive or exhaustive list, but it’s an excellent place to start. The majority of the links will take you to PubMed. However, I have included one free full-text article, so look out for that one. Articles are from the late May/June/July issues or electronic publications. A printable list is after the jump, followed by the list of live links.
