Violence Free Age: Preventing Sexual Violence Against Older Adults

Sexual violence impacts our community in many ways, and those impacts are experienced in unique and severe ways by older adults. For this reason, prevention strategies that consider and center the needs, goals, autonomy, safety and personhood of older adults are important to explore within the broader universe of our prevention efforts. Join us at this discussion to learn more about the impact of sexual violence on older adults, and to collaboratively explore prevention strategies that will assist in achieving safety within this community! We’ll talk about primary, secondary and tertiary prevention strategies; explore reporting barriers that impact older adults in the social-ecological framework, and discuss the impact of ageism and need for social capital as contributing risk and protective factors for older adults. 1 Social Work CEU will be offered.
