dc.description Research Brief en_US
dc.description.abstract This research brief synthesizes the latest available research on the mistreatment of Asian Pacific Islander elders, which are comprised of many diverse sub-groups. It covers research findings on perceptions of mistreatment, API emphasis on the group or family over the individual, help-seeking behaviors for elder mistreatment, cultural considerations for assessment of API elder mistreatment and for intervention in API elder mistreatment. It also discusses the impact of culture on elder mistreatment, noting that API culture can be tied to risk factors as well as protective factors. The brief then goes into greater detail for the research findings on the individual ethnic sub-groups of Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Asian Indian, Vietnamese, and Filipino populations, though it acknowledges that “Asian Pacific Islander” includes a variety of sub-groups including: Chinese, Filipino, Korean, Japanese, Asian Indian, Vietnamese, Laotian, Cambodian, Thai, Hmong, Hawaiian, and other distinct ethnic groups.
