Reframing the Conversation on Elder Abuse

Source: FrameWorks Institute

Published: 2018


This FrameWorks Academy course provides advocates working on the issue of elder abuse with a comprehensive communications strategy that has been empirically tested to improve public understanding and support for policy solutions that address and prevent elder abuse. The Frameworks Institute in Collaboration with the National Center on Elder Abuse have launched a new free online video lecture series on how to effectively reframe the way we talk about elder abuse with the public. These videos are a professional training product on how to communicate more powerfully about elder abuse as a social policy issue.

This video lecture series is a part of the Reframing Elder Abuse project to reframe the public’s understanding of elder abuse. It is our hope that this Reframing Elder Abuse video lecture series strengthens all of our field’s public communication skills by teaching us how the public thinks about aging and abuse and how to use this understanding to discuss the role of ageism, social isolation and other social factors in elder abuse more effectively.
