World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2023 Webinar: Trauma-Informed Practices to Address Abuse and Build Resilience

June 15, 2023 @ 2:30 pm EDT

Preventing and addressing elder abuse and building resilience in older adults requires a nuanced and trauma-informed approach. Trauma is a widespread issue that affects individuals in different ways. Older adults are exposed to multiple types of traumas over the lifetime as well as older adult-specific traumas, including the loss of spouse/ partner, social isolation, chronic illness, change in living environment, and elder abuse. This panel webinar will discuss the cumulative and complex trauma histories of diverse older adults, how trauma relates to elder abuse, and strategies to provide culturally responsive and trauma-informed support. Zoom closed captioning will be available during the webinar.
