Recent research: articles from November journals

I read a lot of research.  When I find an article of particular interest I download it to my bibliographic database - EndNote - which currently contains over 13,600 abstracts. 

Every few weeks I scan through all the articles I've found interesting in the previous month (in the general areas of stress, health & wellbeing) and then filter them into three narrower, more specific mailings.  One is to the communal email list of the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).  This set of abstracts focuses particularly on cognitive therapy in its many applications (anxiety, depression, psychotic disorders, etc).  Click on BABCP mailing to see the 28 papers (mostly from November journals) that I recently sent out.

A second mailing is to various people involved with Depression Alliance Scotland (DAS).  DAS is the only Scottish-based charity specifically working for people with depression who live in Scotland.  I've been on their Clinical Advisory Board for some years.  These abstracts focus more on depression and many are about antidepressant medication as well as others which overlap with the BABCP mailing on psychotherapy.  Click on DAS mailing to see the 14 papers recently sent out.

The third mailing is to the editor of the British Holistic Medical Association (BHMA) newsletter.  Back in the early 1980's I was on the working party that set up the BHMA.  I'm not much involved with them now - partly because many of their original objectives have been achieved and are now mainstream.  This month's BHMA mailing contains 29 abstracts on the health effects of income inequality, money & security, empathy in medical education, occupational health, retirement, weight & dementia risk, green tea, diet & depression, yoga with kids, stopping smoking and more.
