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.

Elder Abuse: Incidence and Prevalence on January 27, 2011: 1 - 3 p.m. EST.

Register to attend this free webinar.

The mistreatment of our nation’s elderly citizens may be more prevalent than previously known. In a recent nationwide study, 11% of elders reported being the victim of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse or neglect in the previous year.

What do we know about who is at the highest risk of mistreatment — and what do we know about the perpetrators?

In this event, presented by NIJ and Harvard's Government Innovators Network, three nationally recognized experts discuss the results of the NIJ-funded National Elder Mistreatment Study and what they mean for policymakers and practitioners as our nation faces the unique realities of the ever-growing population of elderly citizens.

Description: 

In a sea of toxic media messages, envisioning development of healthy attitudes about sex is no easy task. Join expert Dr. Sharon Lamb in Hardy Girls Healthy Women's next webinar to learn what we, as caring adults in girls' lives, can do to combat unhealthy messages!

Dr. Sharon Lamb has published widely in the fields of moral development, abuse and victimization, sexual development , psychotherapy with children and adolescents, the sexualization of girls, and media and marketing impact on the development of girls and boys. She served on the APA Task Force on the Sexualization of Girls, which found that sexualization in media leads to increased eating disorders, increased depression, and lower self-esteem among girls.

During this webinar, she'll explore alternatives to the narrow versions of sexuality sold to our youth by the media. How do we encourage girls' to use their voices, see themselves as subjects rather than objects, value their own pleasure, and grow at their own pace?

*Registration for this innovative event costs $49.99. Register by April 22nd and receive a $10.00 discount.
