In support of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, the Center For Victim Research will host an interactive webinar on “Elder Abuse and Social Connections.”
June 12, 2018, from 2 pm to 3 pm ET.
This webinar is geared toward service providers working with older adults; researchers studying abuse prevention and social connections; and those who want to learn about the largest, longitudinal study of elder mistreatment. Join Dr. Ron Acierno and Dr. Melba Hernandez-Tejada in a discussion on key findings from the National Elder Mistreatment Study, the first nationally representative study focused on elder abuse, and their recently released eight 8-year follow-up results. The webinar will focus on social support as key to protecting older adults and building resiliency after experiences of elder abuse. Additional information and registration are available at
