Traumatic events are widely acknowledged to have long-term impacts on younger individuals, yet we have only recently begun to assess for and gain an understanding of trauma in the lives of older adults. For many older adults, trauma is often overlooked as being either a distant past event (e.g. child abuse) or a normal part of aging (e.g. widowhood). This session will discuss trauma-informed care – looking at how past and recent events can be traumatic for older adults and how to assess and plan for the prevention of re-traumatization.
