Victimization of the Elderly and Disabled

Other Reviews

I have been privileged to review Dr. Nora Baladerian's "Risk Reduction Workbook for Parents and Service Providers." As a tool for those of us as we do advocacy for people with disabilities, it is the best I have found. It will be the "Bible" to go to. Long overdue in our field.

Very well done! What great resources. The possibility of abuse is a fear that many families live with. Having some tools to reduce the risk as well as having a plan to follow if anything does happen, is empowering. And that is what A Risk Reduction Workbook provides - practical tools and empowerment. I highly recommend these resources.

I expect the use of this Workbook will help countless people with developmental disabilities be safer from would-be perpetrators while developing healthier views of sex and their own sexuality.

Brilliant.  Brilliant.  Brilliant.  We don't want disasters to happen, and we don't want violence to happen. Yet it does. Information is POWER. This adds to the knowledge base of all of us.

Risk Reduction offers sage advice about what we can do as parents and professionals to reduce the risks associated with the sexual assault of our most vulnerable people. This is a manual that should be required reading for every parent, educator and disability professional that works with people with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

This "Workbook" is a well thought out, informative and impressive guide that not only looks to prepare caregivers and others to reduce the risk of abuse to persons with disabilities, but also to prepare caregivers and others to effectively respond to abuse when it happens.

Developmental Disabilities

In addition to the workbook for parents and service providers, there is a book written specifically for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities.  This book will help them understand more about the risks of becoming a victim of abuse, how to reduce the risk, and what to do if it actually happens to them.
