This 2-DVD Set focuses on the abuse of older people both in the community and in other settings. Elder abuse was first recognised way back in the 1970s but even thirty years on the subject area still does not get the attention it deserves. The prime aim of this video set is to raise awareness about abuse amongst workers across the sectors who have any involvement with an older person.

An older person may be deemed to be a vulnerable adult so the video presents information regarding the important guidance from the Department of Health No Secrets (2000) and how workers should be aware of local multi-agency policies and procedures on vulnerable adults and adult abuse. Definitions and categories of abuse are discussed through the use of case studies, which illustrate the obvious forms of abuse as well as the more subtle ways in which abuse can be inflicted. Attention is also given to who can be a victim, who can abuse and the causal factors of abuse.

The 2-DVD Set contains case studies, learning points, discussion questions and exercises.

DVD 1 presents the theory regarding elder abuse and 5 case studies based in the community.

DVD 2 considers institutional abuse and presents 3 case studies in a care home.

Running Time 90mins

"Can You Read Me: Creative Writing with Child and Adult Victims of Abuse" is the featured book of the month.
Offer price: £17.10 (P&P is FREE)

'Occupational therapists will already be familiar with the principles of group work but the book demonstrates who the use of poetry can be used to order the chaos of the thoughts of the writers and describes the practical use of journals for workers in helping victims through the healing process. The book is also littered with useful snippets of advice. It is written in an economical, plain language sensitive to the subject matter and is deceptively quick to read as you are drawn in by the emotional raw poetry and writing it contains.' (Mental Health Occupational Therapy Journal)

'The first sixty-seven pages explore the creation of the book, understanding the origins of the work it presents and seeking to analyse it. These pages, in my opinion, concretise the book's real value. In my own experience as a counsellor with survivors of abuse, writing is frequently employed as a therapeutic tool but is less frequently well-understood. The book is clear and understandable. Various exercises are handily summarised in a series of readymade handouts, which may be photocopied and reused. This would be a valuable addition to the library of anyone working, or considering work, with survivors of abuse.' (Lapidus)
