    Description

    Working with abusers is an important component of elder abuse work. Often clients refuse help if it means using law enforcement and the criminal courts. In this workshop we will discuss how the criminal justice system works and will focus on other options available that could keep individuals out of jail and on the road to recovery. We will also focus on the role of the social worker in collaborating with the legal team in providing a psychosocial perspective on the relationship between the defendant and the complaining witness. This module will also discuss the ethical concerns surrounding working with elder abuse cases, especially when clients do not agree with our legal or social work advice.
