This book will help to advance understanding among policymakers, practitioners, and educators and prepare them to limit the negative consequences associated with victimization of older adults. This second edition builds on the earlier edition in five ways. First, new research has been added into each chapter. Second, the tables and figures have been updated, with applied critical thinking questions now included in order to make the tables and figures more interactive with readers. Third, various sections have been added in different chapters. Fourth, chapters 2-7 now include box inserts which include brief overviews written by professionals who are discussing some aspect of elder abuse. Finally, chapter 7 has been added. This new edition will help shed some light on what can be done to prevent elderly persons from being victimized, or at least minimize the consequences of victimization when abuse does occur. It will be of interest to those in several different disciplines, including criminology, gerontology, social work, social welfare, sociology, psychology, victimology, medicine and other social sciences.
