Audrey Allard, a Master of social work student from the University of Sherbrooke, under the direction of Marie Beaulieu, has done her master’s internship in the fall of 2015 in Belgium with Respect Seniors, the Walloon Agency for countering elder abuse.

The purpose of her internship was to adapt three themes of the factual Quiz on aging to the intervention context of Respect Seniors, in order to enhance their awareness-raising practices regarding ageism and abuse. Since Audrey’s thesis will focus on the impact of the tool In Hand-Respect Seniors on the practice of psychosocial practitioners working for Respect Seniors, she took the opportunity to collect data on the use of this tool. She conducted a total of nine individual interviews with practitioners and attended two team meetings. She will start the data analysis and the drafting of her thesis in January 2016.
