Overview

Research on elder abuse is a relatively new area of investigation. Many of the available publications have dealt with definition issues and attempted to identify categories of physical, emotional, and financial abuse as well as those of active and passive neglect. Most of the assertions about the nature and magnitude of elder abuse are speculation. Much of the data presently available are found in unpublished manuscripts, proceedings of congressional committees, and reports from state and federal agencies.

This bibliography was developed to increase the awareness among professionals and the public of abuse, victimization, and suicide prevalent among the elderly. It contains 546 abstracts to serial literature, 41 citations to dissertations, 29 authored books, and 126 chapters from 72 edited books that focused on the psychological and behavioral aspects of abuse, victimization, and suicide of the elderly.
