Understand factors which may lead to abusive situations
Transcript of Understand factors which may lead to abusive situations
This may be a person with a physical or learning disabilities and or mental health problems.
Older people and individuals that are suffering from dementia.
Individuals in these groups tend to be over compliant and accepting to whatever happens to them.
This may be due to medication, having low self-expectations and low self esteem.
Their illness, condition or age tends to make them isolated.
As a result them become dependent on the abuser. or potential abusers for help. they may also feel its their fault which the abuser could also make them feel like this. If people cannot communicate verbally then this would be a barrier for them to let others know what is happening.
For example there has been many reported cases where carers have taken sexual advantage of patients who have been unconscious. Why might this groups of people be seen as vulnerable? For each of the different care environments identified below, provide an example of the type of abusive behaviour that could take place there: Environments Jonas -
