Written for all those working in social and health care settings who work with older adults, this practical guide constitutes a current and accurate reference for detecting and managing abuse and neglect. Based on more than a decade of research, education and training in elder mistreatment, the book combines theory and practice to offer a comprehensive set of guidelines to assess whether elder abuse and neglect has ocurred. It includes discussion of the different types of abuse, and equips the reader with effective intervention strategies to defuse abusive situations. It provides sound, practical guidance on: assessing physical, sexual, emotional, and financial abuse and neglect; recognising the characteristics of victims and perpetrators; documenting cases of mistreatment; working as part of a multi-disciplinary team; working with victims of elder abuse and the families after abuse has ocurred; training staff in long-term care facilities to detect and prevent abuse.
