Elder Justice Training Institute

JASA Elder Justice Training Institute 2023-2024

JASA is recognized as a leading provider of professional education for professionals who work with elder abuse survivors.  

Thousands of older adults in New York are abused, neglected, and exploited yearly, and the number is growing. JASA’s Elder Justice Training Institute offers five interdisciplinary workshops that improve understanding and response to the various forms of elder abuse. The Institute educates social service, health, legal, and financial professionals, and the public.

These virtual 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 $60 fee to participate for each session. There is no additional cost for CEUs.

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.

It is strongly recommended to have your video on for all zoom webinars.
