In this second edition of their classic volume, the authors present their elder abuse diagnosis and intervention model.

It then provides systematic and realistic interventions.
This updated edition also includes information on legal interventions with suggestions on how the practitioner should act in the courtroom, give testimony, document findings, and prepare for legal involvement with the criminal justice system. Actual legal tools are included in the appendix. This is a classic resource for all health professionals who work with the elderly.
