Child Abuse DV/IPV Elder Abuse/Neglect Sexual Assault

Articles of Note: January Edition

It’s time once again for Articles of Note. These are a selection from the late December and January peer-reviewed journals that have caught my attention. 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. There are also a couple free full-text article in here. I’ve tried to add in a few more non-North American studies at the request of a few of my readers.

Here’s the printable version. The active links follow below.
