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

Articles of Note: January 2013 Edition

I am a bit late on getting an Articles of Note post up, but hopefully what I lack in timeliness I make up for in volume. There’s some really interesting research to be found in the current journals, so I encourage you to peruse the list and see what looks relevant to your practice. Not too many free full-text articles, sadly, so hopefully you can access the articles via your local medical library or hospital. What follows after the jump is the embedded Scribd doc for printing; the list with live links is after that. As always, contact me if you want all of this in a word doc.
