Bullying between Older Adults: What is happening in Ontario?
Senior to senior bullying is concerning, yet the majority of bullying research has virtually ignored bullying amongst older adults. Sheridan College, Centre for Elder Research, is working in partnership with Elder Abuse Ontario (EAO), and a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, are working towards filling this void in the research. By understanding what is happening in Ontario, we will be able to develop best practices and strategies this diverse population.
The Centre for Elder Research and EAO are conducting an Ontario-wide study to help us learn more about the prevalence and nature of bullying between older adults. The data will be used to help create a resource package outlining best practices for seniors and those working with seniors to stop bullying.
