Date: October 19, 2018
Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
This session will review the growing body of literature on bullying and hoarding in the older adult residential settings: peer-to-peer relational aggression and hoarding in senior residential settings. This is beginning to be recognized as problematic and having a negative impact on the psychological and emotional health of seniors. The training will focus on strategies that staff and administration can use to identify bullying and decrease resident victimization on an individual level as well as community level. In addition, this session will provide an overview of hoarding as a mental health and social issue explaining the complexity of treatment for people who have hoarding behaviors.
