Workshop #2 - December 14

Physical and Mental Health Perspectives on Elder Abuse

Tuesday, December 14, 2021
10:00AM - 12:00PM

Medical, mental health, and social service providers are instrumental in identifying and engaging victims of elder mistreatment and developing service plans to meet their needs. Due to the pandemic, most treatment and day programs are virtual, resulting in heightened emotional tensions and greater potential for elder mistreatment in the home. The challenge of working with older adults who are not tech savvy will also be discussed in this workshop.
