This free event is a Webinar and takes place online. Registration  is required.

 

Elder abuse and neglect is a growing issue as America ages. There are several physical markers which help to identify elder mistreatment. Some of these include physical conditions such as documented but untreated injuries, inconsistencies between the reported time of death and condition of the body, and signs of malnutrition and dehydration.

This webinar is the second in a two-part series on elder abuse, sponsored by the Government Innovators Network and the National Institute of Justice (the first webinar examined incidence and prevalence).

Listen to experts discuss what they know about bruising as well as the important role of forensic information and technology in effectively investigating cases of elder abuse and neglect. Ample time will be allocated for audience Q&A.

Description: 

What every health and social service provider needs to know about the importance of providing trauma-informed services to women and girls across the lifespan.
The impact of violence, abuse, neglect, disaster, war, and other harmful experiences continues long after the traumatic event has ended. Exposure to trauma is a pervasive issue that has significantly impacted the health and well-being of millions of Americans and nearly everyone seeking services in the public health and social services systems. Understanding how trauma affects the emotional, behavioral, cognitive, social, and physical functioning of the people we care for can improve our services.
