Assessment of Violence Across the Lifespan: Experiential Practice with Case of Elder Abuse

  • Pearl Berman, PhD and Camille Interligi, MA

    This presentation will first describe strategies for assessing violence exposure across the lifespan, the impact of gender roles on victimization and perpetration of violence, and the impact of violence on development. Second, participants will gain experiential practice using these strategies with a simulated case of elder abuse. The value of moving out of disciplinary silos and taking on a multidisciplinary identity will be stressed throughout.
