The abuse of older adults is a common problem in our society, but rarely discussed. This is particularly challenging because victims/survivors of elder abuse are often an invisible population across cultures, gender, immigration status, etc. In this webinar, presenters discuss the specific and unique needs of Latino victims of elder abuse as this group is especially underrepresented in research and practice. Best approaches for bridging this gap as well as examples of successful collaborations to address this problem are highlighted in this webinar.

El abuso a los ancianos o personas de la tercera edad es, lamentablemente, un problema comœn en nuestra sociedad pero del que poco se habla. Esto es particularmente dificil porque las victimas/sobrevivientes de este tipo de abuso son casi siempre parte de una poblaci—n invisible presente en todas las culturas, generos, orientaci—n sexual, estatus migratorio, etc. En este seminario web, las presentadoras discuten las necesidades especificas de Latinos v’ctimas del abuso de ancianos, ya que esta poblaci—n continœa estando poco representada en estudios y en la practica diaria. Las presentadoras comparten soluciones para resolver esta falta y ejemplos de colaboraciones exitosas para responder a este problema satisfactoriamente.
