Latinx Americans are the largest ethnic minority in the United States. Join the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) as they take a deep dive addressing elder abuse research findings that impact older people in Latinx communities. This session will go over impactful moments in Latinx history, risk factors, and how culture influences elder abuse prevention and help-seeking behaviors. Tune in to learn research-informed best practices and recommendations for professionals who wish to better serve this population.
During this webinar, we will:
- Define culture, cultural competency, and their impact on elder abuse and abuse prevention strategies in the Latinx community
- Examine how culture can be both a risk factor and protective factor for elder abuse
- Identify strategies to reach and engage older adults from Latinx communities in elder abuse prevention activities
