JASA Elder Justice Training Institute Webinar Series
Thousands of older adults in New York are abused, neglected, and exploited every year, and the number is growing. JASA’s Elder Justice Training Institute is an interdisciplinary program, which improves the understanding of and response to the various forms of elder abuse. The Institute educates social service, health, legal, and financial professionals as well as the public.
JASA is recognized as a leading provider of professional education for professionals who work with elder abuse survivors. JASA’s Elder Justice Training Institute (formerly the Elder Abuse Training Institute), offers webinars about how to address elder abuse and exploitation. The team of presenters includes leaders in the field of elder justice.
These sessions, designed for social work and legal professionals, will offer training on evidenced-based practices to support vulnerable older adults. These trainings will include enhanced safety planning, multidisciplinary approaches to case assessment, strategies to secure appropriate community and city government resources, and interventions to resolve the abuse.
Each workshop offers two social work continuing education credits. There is a $50 fee to participate for each session.
These workshops are made possible through a partnership between JASA and the Lifespan of Greater Rochester, Inc. and is funded in part by Monroe County Office for the Aging, New York State Office for the Aging, US Administration on Aging, Lifespan of Greater Rochester, and participant contributions.
