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

Articles of Note: July 2021 Edition

It’s time once again for Articles of Note, our monthly romp through the peer-reviewed literature. Just a reminder–this is not an exhaustive list; rather one that is filled with articles that have captured my attention and also may be relevant to the practice of my readers (based on what part of the world everyone’s logging in from and the general tenor of questions I field).

As always, there’s something for just about all forensic clinicians, with a particular emphasis this month on sexual assault, and a few less commonly discussed topics that I think are worthy of your attention scattered about. Also, thanks for all of the lovely notes about the editorial in JFN–I am pleased with the response I have heard from many of you at this point. If you are going to Orlando in September, we will be discussing testimony in-depth–I hope to see you at one (or more) of those sessions.

Links lead to PubMed abstracts unless otherwise noted. Let me know if you’re challenged in getting copies of an article and we’ll see if we can’t assist on that front. Happy reading!

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.
