In this study, Jacki Pritchard shows how support groups for victims of elder abuse provide invaluable opportunities for the voices of older people to be heard. Following groups through a two-year period, she discusses how they were set up and the difficulties encountered and overcome, linking these experiences to group work theory.Pointing to an important area of professional intervention in elder abuse, the author provides guidelines about who can benefit from group work and how survivors can heal and work together.
