Working with Older Survivors of Abuse: A Toolkit for Advocates — as part of our shared mission to enhance the safety and quality of life of victims across the lifespan, NCALL and OVW have worked with advocates throughout the United States exploring how to better meet the needs of older survivors of abuse. Since 1999, NCALL and OVW have talked with older victims and professionals in the field, conducted listening sessions with subject matter experts, reviewed the literature and facilitated trainings. From this process, the Working with Older Survivors of Abuse: A Toolkit for Advocates was created. This toolkit includes Working with Older Survivors of Abuse: A Framework for Advocates and the Abuse in Later Life Education Series for Advocates.
