Every person—no matter how young or old—deserves to be safe from harm by those who live with them, care for them, or come in day-to-day contact with them. The mistreatment of elders is of special consideration to helping professionals. This workshop will explore the nature of elder mistreatment and abuse, including types and explanations. Cultural influences will be discussed related to the occurrences and responses to mistreatment. Case vignettes will highlight specific client situations for practitioners to assess from cultural and ethical perspectives.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify, explore, and classify types of elder mistreatment and appropriate screening considerations.
  • Examine the role of culture and ethics in elder mistreatment case studies.
  • Describe and implement culturally informed prevention and intervention strategies for reducing and addressing elder mistreatment and abuse.
