In this podcast, our guest Jodie Bargeron describes progressive frameworks that have shaped self-neglect (SN) research - specifically, whether SN is an old age phenomenon or life course issue, and the difference between intentional versus unintentional SN. She discusses her research pertaining to whether Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES), intrusive parenting, and/or self-control are related to SN among both elderly and non-elderly adults. The episode concludes by stressing the need for social workers to treat SN from a life course perspective, and to consider the use attachment-based therapy to adequately address these behaviors and avoid adverse consequences.
