Providing Survivor-Centered Advocacy for Older Adults
May 23, 2019
Douglas County Government Center

This half-day training will begin by reviewing the basic concepts of elder abuse and abuse in later life including exploring the power and control dynamics that may exist in an abusive relationship. We will explore an in-depth discussion of a trauma informed, victim-centered response to older victims and examine some of the unique barriers that may exist for older victims seeking help.  This interactive training will include concrete steps that advocates and other direct service providers can take when working with older individuals who have been harmed. 

As a result of this training participants will be able to:

  Recognize the dynamics of elder abuse and abuse in later   life
  Describe how trauma may impact older individuals who have been harmed
  Identify some of the unique barriers that may exist for older individuals seeking help from our agencies
  Create a trauma informed response with a focus on victim safety and community collaboration

Registration Fee: $49.00

Some partial scholarship assistance is available. Contact Esther Gieschen,, 715.394.8529, if you work with survivors of abuse and are unable to attend this training without scholarship assistance.
