Senior to Senior Anti-bullying Toolkit Launch 
Solutions, Everybody's Business


Friday, March 13, 2020
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Register in advance for this webinar

Senior to senior bullying is concerning, yet the majority of bullying research has virtually ignored bullying amongst older adults.
Sheridan College, Centre for Elder Research, in partnership with Elder Abuse Prevention Ontario (EAPO), and a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, have worked towards filling this void in the research with the project Bullying between Older Adults: What is happening in Ontario?. Together, they developped a resource package outlining best practices for seniors and those working with seniors to stop bullying. This webinar will introduce key findings from the research project and introduce the toolkit.

Social connectedness refers to perceptions of intimacy and belonging in relationships with others and is a priority for quality of life according to people with dementia in Canada and internationally. Despite high stakes, few interventions have been designed and rigorously evaluated for use with people with dementia. Outlining a program of research to address loneliness, this presentation highlights research challenges and strategies to advance the field.
