Marie Beaulieu hosts a conference in the Webinar Series of the Canadian Association on Gerontology. (February 2020)
Themes: Scientific Conference
On February 13, 2020, Marie Beaulieu presents a conference, in English, entitled ‘The Mistreatment of Older Persons: From research to practice guides.’
The common thread of this conference, offered free of charge for viewing on-line, is to position Marie Beaulieu’s research through a ‘perspective of applied social gerontology; i.e., having not only the possibility of developing and updating public policy but also the capacity to develop practical material to guide intervenors (health and social services professionals, police, volunteers, etc.).’
This presentation briefly lays out the research data that led to the production of four (4) practice guides.
- The first centers on the ethical and psychosocial issues encountered in the field;
- The second is directed towards police practices in the context of the fight against mistreatment;
- The third addresses a related aspect of mistreatment, self-neglect;
- The fourth deals with the obstacles and incentives in requesting help from older adults experiencing mistreatment.
