LINKS TO THE CHAIR’S OBJECTIVES:

Objective 1 : Developing theoretical, empirical and practice-based knowledge on: forms and types of mistreatment, factors of vulnerability and risk associated with mistreatment, consequences of mistreatment, profile of the person who mistreats, good treatment and bullying (including online bullying).

PROBLEM:

The factual quiz on ageing was developed by Palmore in the 1970s with the ultimate goal of deconstructing persistent myths on aging. Considering the lack of such a tool regarding mistreatment of older adults, Marie Beaulieu proposed to Johannie the development of a quiz focusing specifically on this social issue.

Developing a factual quiz on mistreatment of older adults, based on the approach developped by Palmore.

WORK PROGRESS:

Johannie completed her essay on the development of a factual quiz on mistreatment of older adults in december 2010. This essay served as a basis for a funded research project and for the publication of the book La maltraitance envers les aînés. Changer le regard (2012) (Mistreatment of Older Adults. Changing Perceptions). Johannie has lectured in the context of several conferences on the topic and has contributed to the drafting of documents related to her essay.
