Listed below are events for the elder justice community scheduled to take place outside of the New York City Area. These events are not listed on the sidebar calendar.

Webinar: Is It Social Bullying? Strategies for Assessing and Intervening with Older Adults on Thursday, February 25, 2016. Register hereThe webinar will describe social bullying among older adults and provide strategies/interventions to create an environment where everyone feels safe and valued. We will differentiate social bullying from other bad behaviors; describe common characteristics of bullies and those likely to be targeted; provide assessment and intervention strategies that involve the entire community (including bystanders) in creating a welcoming, accepting community.

Webinar: Sex and Healthy Aging: A Guide for Senior Centers and Aging Providers on Wednesday, February 3, 2016. Register hereThis webinar is designed to help Aging services providers become more comfortable discussing sex and healthy sexual behaviors with older adults. It will acknowledge and recognize that older adults are having sex at all ages and will discuss information around healthy aging, sexual function and dysfunction as we age, as well as the significance of immunosenescence (natural decline of the immune system due to age) while managing HIV and STIs.   This will help participants assess their own comfort level with having conversations about sex with seniors and will also provide skill-building opportunities on how to “break the ice” and how to create safe and inclusive spaces for LGBT seniors.

In 2014 Congress lifted the cap on the Victim of Crime Act (VOCA) funding from $745 million to $2.361 billion.  VOCA funds direct victim services and compensation.  Since 2002, the Office on Violence Against Women’s Abuse in Later Life Program has funded communities to provide training for professionals on elder abuse; to create a coordinated community response and to enhance direct victim services for older adults. Join us to hear more about how you can apply for funding from these two federal programs to support victim services for older adults in your community.
