AbstractThis study addresses cultural views on and response to mistreatment of elderly Korean immigrants. With four hypothetical scenarios, individuals were asked to identify whether they (1) perceived scenarios to be elder mistreatment and (2) would seek help in the described situation. Age, gender, education, years in the United States, and exposure to mistreatment were associated with participants' help-seeking intention. The social development framework was utilized to propose an ethnic- and type-specific elder mistreatment intervention strategy.
