The abuse, neglect and exploitation of older people in community and residential care settings is increasingly being recognised and addressed as a serious social concern in Britain. In Canada, where the issue has had a much higher profile, different forms of practice have developed.

Elder Abuse Work gives an overview of the developments and issues in both countries and draws out good practice guidelines. The chapters analyse research, theory, policy development, legislation, practice issues, resources and new ideas. The specific aspects covered include clinical practice developments, cross-agency coordination, 'self-help' for older people, awareness raising, financial abuse, and the medical and police perspectives. Innovative models for abuse intervention which have been generated in Canada are described and assessed. The book includes ideas for training and tested training exercises. The contributors are drawn from a wide range of settings in both voluntary and statutory agencies, as well as the academic world.

This exhaustive volume will guide and inspire the direct work of anyone involved in the care of older people who have been victims of abuse, as well as informing and focusing the decisions of managers and policy makers on the central issues of concern

Reviews: 

'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)
