Four Points by Sheraton – Phoenix North
2532 West Peoria Avenue
Phoenix, Arizona 85029

The Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), AEquitas, and the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL) present the National Institute on the Prosecution of Elder Abuse (NIPEA), a three-and-one-half-day course designed to challenge prosecutors to reevaluate their approach to prosecuting elder abuse cases. Participants receive training on the dynamics of elder abuse as well as practical skills to successfully prosecute these cases. NIPEA explores the complex issues faced by prosecutors while balancing offender accountability with the impact of criminal prosecution on victims. In addition to case evaluation and litigation skills, the curriculum examines the benefits of developing a coordinated, victim-centered community response; explains common injuries and relevant medical evidence, providing guidance on the use of medical experts; explores ethical issues confronted by prosecutors; addresses the development and improvement of culturally-specific victim services; and offers prosecutors the ability to redefine outcomes and the very nature of justice in elder abuse cases.
