Working with Older Survivors of Abuse: A Framework for Advocates (2016)

Since 1999, the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL) and the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) have responded to questions from advocates on how to tailor victim services to better meet the needs of older adults. As part of our shared mission to enhance the safety and quality of life of victims across the lifespan, NCALL and OVW created Working with Older Survivors of Abuse: A Framework for Advocates. This toolkit consists of a: summary report, a self-assessment workbook and resource lists, and training modules.  [Source: VAWnet]
