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

Articles of Note: October Edition

Happily, my trip to Japan has been cancelled (I remember a time that would be devastating news–now it is an absolute gift); this means I can catch up on a few things, like an Articles of Note post for instance. What follows are articles that have caught my eye from the late September/ October/ November new publications. All links lead to PubMed abstracts unless otherwise indicated. As always, contact me if you want the full list in a word doc with hyperlinks.

Scribd doc is below (printable), followed by the listing with links:
