Hosted by: National Sexual Violence Resource Center
Older adult survivors of abuse have a complex set of circumstances and often poor options to consider. Elder abuse survivors may have additional needs requiring service providers to examine how they are currently delivering services and how their policies and practices may help or hinder an older survivor. During this webinar, presenters will discuss how generational issues may influence survivors' choices, especially within communities who have experienced historical trauma and oppression. They will explore some of the challenges experienced by Latinx communities, including immigration and lack of linguistically accessible services. Finally, presenters will share effective practices for successful collaborations among organizations and communities to meet the needs of Latinx older survivors.
