Is withholding a religious divorce (Get) a form of domestic abuse?

In this article, which I co-authored with Dr. David Pelcovitz, we delve into the issue if withholding a Jewish divorce (Get) is a form of domestic abuse from a medical and legal perspective, and if there is a remedy. The article includes details on a fascinating study and explores possible tools that can be legislated. All opinions expressed in this article are of Dr. Pelcovitz and myself alone.
