On September 28, Marie Beaulieu and Roxane Leboeuf will deliver a one-hour conference at the Annual General Assembly of the Quebec Order of Social Workers, Marital and Family Therapists.

As a vector of social intervention to counter the mistreatment of older adults, the perspective of the rights of older adults will be the underlying theme of this presentation.

Particular attention is given to the role of older adults in the resolution of these situations (i.e., empowerment). Equally important is the question of the accountability of organizations, professionals, and society in general in their response to this social problem.

The schedule of presentations, including that of the Research Chair, is available on the Order’s website. Please click on this link.
