Elder Abuse

Elder abuse is a significant social problem. The number of older adults (65 years of age or older) in the US population is expected to double by 2030 to about 72 million (U.S. Census Bureau, 2010). Of this group the “oldest old,” those 85 or older, are the fastest growing segment. By 2030, their number will grow from 5.8 million to 8.7 million. As the number of older adults increases, especially those who are older and frailer, the incidence of elder abuse is expected to increase. Mistreatment of older adults often occurs in isolation and often remains undetected. The first step to addressing the problem is to heighten awareness of abuse of the old, in particular among those who serve them or have frequent contact with them. Throughout this course, you will learn about types of elder abuse, indicators, consequences, risk factors of abuse, and interventions. You will have the opportunity to test what you have learned in each section through brief quizzes. The course also offers typical elder abuse case scenarios drawn from actual case material from Adult Protective Services or other elder abuse program caseloads. (All identifying information has been modified to protect client privacy.) This course is intended for licensed clinicians across a variety of disciplines who work with older adults.
