College of Counselling: Elder abuse - Recording
Elder abuse: When getting old gets dangerous, working with DV/FV in our ageing population

Presented by Dr Rosalie Hudson

The College of Counselling will be exploring Power and Control: What all counsellors need to know about domestic & family violence

Saturday June 20th 2020

Domestic and family violence perpetrated towards our senior population was exposed with the Royal commission into Aged care, which will provide its final report in November this year. Unfortunately, this horrifying issue continues. As a response to COVID-19 we are hearing of residents in aged care facilities being locking in their rooms for weeks on end.

What do we know about elder abuse?

What forms does elder abuse take?

Who are the main perpetrators?

What are the ethical dilemmas of reporting abuse?

How does ageism play a part?

How does this impact you and your clients?

Rosalie Hudson is a nurse educator, with many years experience in the aged care sector. As an elder herself, she will be shedding some light on what is, too often, an invisible issue. Elder abuse is still under-reported and suffers a shameful stigma.

This webinar is for all counsellors, not only those working in aged care. Join this College of Counselling webinar and broaden your awareness, shift any unconscious bias and be part of a joint solution, rather than a bystander.
