This framework has been developed from research results in clinical settings to support psychosocial practitioners in their ethical reflection leading to decision-making during the intervention process in a senior abuse situation. Its development was made possible thanks to the following funders: the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Research Centre on Aging under the Health and Social Services Centre – University Institute of Geriatrics of Sherbrooke (CSSS-IUGS), the Interdisciplinary Research Center on Family Violence and Violence Against Women (CRI-VIFF), and the National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE).
