As the population ages, reports of abuse in later life are rising. In many cases, the abuser is an intimate partner, adult child or other family member or caregiver of the older victim. This session will address how to identify and effectively respond to domestic violence and sexual abuse in later life. Participants will hear from older survivors as we explore indicators and dynamics of abuse in later life, and they will learn about practical strategies and resources to address safety needs and to enhance the quality life of older victims.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe key indicators and dynamics of domestic violence and sexual assault in later life;
  • Use practical strategies to respond effectively and enhance the safety of older victims of abuse; and,
  • Identify and use local resources, such as victim services organizations.
