About this book

Introduction

Adopting an interdisciplinary framework in recognition of the range of domestic and institutional settings in which elder abuse can occur, this book both explains the nature of this under-reported and little understood problem and addresses the vital question of how practitioners can best work towards its prevention. Locating elder abuse in a spectrum of family violence, the book gives a balanced account of relevant perspectives on it, drawn from the medical, legal, health and social welfare spheres.
