Family gatherings are more commonplace in December, and older adults without families can experience more acute social isolation. Since isolation is both a risk factor for and a consequence of elder abuse, we decided to ask you - our social media followers and colleagues - to commit to speaking with an older adult in December. Our hope was that, by sharing this campaign, we could support older adults and contribute towards the prevention of elder abuse during the 2017 holiday season. More →

Goal Attainment Scaling: Defining the Success of Elder Mistreatment Interventions
Friday, December 15, 2017
9:00 am – 11:00 am
A convenient location in midtown Manhattan. Location details provided upon registration.
David Burnes, PhD, Assistant Professor at University of Toronto, Factor-Inwentash Faculty Social Work and Affiliate Scientist at Baycest Health Sciences.
David Burnes, PhD will review current data about the prevalence and risk factors of elder mistreatment, critique the central way of understanding elder mistreatment as a yes/no issue, and make a case for conceptualizing elder mistreatment along a continuum of severity. Dr. Burnes will present his research on a client-centered treatment planning and measurement procedure for use in community-based elder mistreatment response interventions. This is called “goal attainment scaling,” which accommodates different definitions of intervention success across cases.
- A light breakfast will be served. Please plan to stay at the end of the meeting for networking with your colleagues.
- There is no fee for this educational and networking event.
- Space is limited. First come, first served
- Please email Kasey Brown at email@example.com, or call (212) 746-1416 with any questions.
