Written in the optic of reaching a large audience and to initiate the readers to countering mistreatment towards older adults, this chapter addresses at the same time its history, its scale throughout the world and its definition, as well as further describe its consequences and intervention guidelines to prioritize to counter it.
Two parts are the foundation of this manual. The first is to further describe the contexts and the methods of intervention in the field of victimology by focusing on basic notions and the needs of the victims. The second focuses on intervention with specific population, such as victims of domestic violence or sexual assault.
