Mistreatment, abuse and neglect of old people is not a new problem, but over the last decade we have become increasingly aware of it as a social phenomenon. In response, a body of research and literature is now emerging, but we still lack clear definitions and explanations of abuse and neglect, as well as strategies for dealing with and preventing mistreatment of the elderly. The book opens up the discussion and presents an overview of the key research and theoretical explanations of elder abuse. The various contributions draw together perspectives of professionals from different disciplines to assess: the clinical implications of abuse; key areas for social work; the legal implications of abuse and neglect; sociological perspectives; issues for nurses, physicians and general practitioners; multidisciplinary approaches to dealing with abuse; models for prevention of abuse; and the role of carers. The Mistreatment of Elderly People argues for clearer explanations of abuse which go beyond immediate practical considerations and observations and gives clear guidelines for tackling and preventing the problem. It will be essential reading for professionals and academics concerned with the abuse and mistreatment of elderly people.
