Social Work Roles in Elder Abuse Prevention and Response

In the spirit of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (June 15), NASW has published a report, Social Work Roles in Elder Abuse Prevention and Response, describing how social workers are responding to and preventing elder abuse at local, state, national, and Tribal levels. This open-access publication aims both to advance elder justice within the social work profession and to underscore the innumerable contributions of the profession to the elder justice field. This report is the last in a four-part NASW series on elder justice. Please visit NASW’s Aging Tools to read the accompanying NASW Practice Perspectives, published in November 2021: Federal Funding for and Administration of Elder Justice Programs, Elder Justice & Racial Justice, and Elder Abuse & COVID-19.
