Many older adults have been exposed to trauma in their lifetime. They may have been exposed to violence, discrimination, natural disasters, or have survived a past crime.
The accumulation of past trauma experiences can exacerbate symptoms related to a current trauma.
In this webinar, attendees will learn—
- the importance of referring older survivors of crime to counseling services,
- the factors that increase an older adult's risk for future victimization,
- how counseling services can help a survivor and aid in your professional role, and
- what types of counseling resources are available to older adults.
Issues pertaining to cultural sensitivity and ethical dilemmas will be explored.
