Happy Pride, friends–not sure how it’s already halfway through June, but here we are. I’m splitting my time this month between DC and Charlottesville, so it feels relatively luxurious. Time with my girlchild, who lives in Cville, and a relatively calm month after what has been a wild ride in my household for the last few months. My biggest project still has me tethered to my laptop, writing on IPV, although I am pleased to announce that if you have seen the latest issue of JFN, you also noticed that I wrote a love letter to the courtroom, which appears as the guest editorial in the current issue. I hope you’ll read it. It’s one of the most enjoyable pieces of writing I have done in some time.
Of course, we’re here because it’s time for Articles of Note, our monthly romp through the peer-reviewed literature. For the folx doing IPV work, in particular, it feels like a really rich month. There are also several pieces on sexual assault victims and believability by law enforcement, not all of which are in the same journal, so just an interesting mini-thread there this month. As always, most links go to PubMed, unless otherwise specified as free full-text. Please let me know if there’s something you’re looking for that you can’t get your hands on–I’ll see what I can do to assist.
One other thing–several of you have asked about the absence of the monthly newsletter. Sorry about that, it’s super time-consuming and with everything opening back up, I just haven’t been able to get to them lately. We’ll see if they reappear in the future…
Don’t forget to visit the FHO store where our brand new monograph Forensic Nursing Testimony is now available, along with our other research compilations, which can be bought as a set or individually.
