Understanding Elder Abuse in Minority Populations
Psychology Press, 1999 - Family & Relationships - 247 pages
Understanding Elder Abuse in Minority Populations is an especially valuable and unique contribution to the field because most of the chapters are written by minority researchers and based upon studies within their own indigenous communities across the United States. Major sections of the book deal with specific racial/ethnic populations: African American, Hispanic, Asian American, and Native American. The book concludes with discussions of the overall impact of elder abuse on all populations, culturally specific outreach programs, and a synthesis of current knowledge on minority elder abuse.
An authoritative resource, Understanding Elder Abuse in Minority Populations is for all caregivers dealing with minority elders.
