"As this toolkit grows throughout 2016 and 2017, it will consist of
1) this summary report,
2) a self-assessment workbook and resource lists, and
3) training modules.
These materials are designed to enhance responses to older survivors of abuse by community-based domestic violence (DV) and sexual assault (SA) agency staff and volunteers. This summary report begins with a brief overview of elder abuse and abuse in later life.
Subsequent sections describe seven key guiding principles as well as minimum guidelines and practice strategies for advocates to consider in their work with older survivors."
