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

Articles of Note: August 2021 Edition

Greetings from PDX, where I am finishing a delightful long weekend away with my girlchild. We stole a few days together before she goes back for her 3rd year of college and I return to the road for teaching and trials. As of now, things are still in person, but my hunch is a lot is about to radically change…sigh.

It’s time once again for Articles of Note, our monthly romp through the peer-reviewed literature. And I need to remind readers, as I do on occasion, just because I include an article, doesn’t mean I endorse it. Everything on the list is included because I find it interesting, for better or worse, and I think you might too. Noteworthy doesn’t necessarily speak to quality, so please don’t cite an article’s inclusion on one of my lists as a reason to buy its conclusions wholesale. Please read the articles for yourself and draw your own conclusions.

There are multiple full free text articles noted; everything else leads to PubMed abstracts. As many of you know, I’m working on a fairly large IPV project, so the list is skewing heavily in that direction these days, but there’s plenty of other forensic content here. Please let me know if you have trouble finding articles–I can usually help folx connect with content in a pinch.

Don’t forget to visit the FHO store where our most recent monograph Forensic Nursing Testimony is now available, along with our other research compilations, which can be bought as a set or individually.
