R2P Webinar – The Sexual Abuse of Vulnerable Adults in Institutions: Key Study Findings and Implications for Practice
Tuesday, February 7, 2017
2:00-3:30 pm (EST)
This webinar will provide an overview of the National Institute on Aging-funded study “The Sexual Abuse of Vulnerable Adults in Institutions” (SAVAI), its key findings with regard to case factors that predicted substantiation of the sexual abuse allegation, and implications for practice. The SAVAI study collected data on over 400 new allegations of sexual abuse that were investigated by Adult Protective Services and/or regulatory agencies in Oregon, New Hampshire, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin during a six-month period.
Webinar attendees will be able to:
- Understand the challenges to, and strategies for, conducting research on sexual abuse of vulnerable adults residing in care facilities
- Describe case characteristics that increase or decrease the likelihood that a sexual abuse allegation within a care setting will be substantiated
- Advocate for more effective investigative practices in cases of sexual abuse of vulnerable adults residing within care facilities.
