Advocates Academy: Webinars and Events
Advancing Trauma Informed Responses to Elder Abuse
Date: Thursday, April 30, 2020
Time: 10:00-11:30 AM PST (1:00-2:30 PM EST)
Hosted by: California Elder Justice Coalition
Registration link coming soon!
Drawing from a 2018 daylong symposium that brought together experts to consider the effect of trauma in the lives of elder abuse victims and the recently released “The Things They Carry: Advancing Trauma – Informed Responses to Elder Abuse,” this webinar will explore why we need to understand trauma and recommendations on how it might be addressed in practice, education, research and policy. The panelists will further describe what led to the recommendations and why they are critical for the future of creating skilled trauma-informed responses to elder abuse. In understanding trauma and trauma informed approaches, one such program, The Sanctuary Model, will be briefly discussed.
Facilitated by Molly Davies, Vice President WISE and Healthy Aging and CEJC Steering Committee member
