Webinar- Elder Abuse: The Impact of Undue Influence
Tuesday, June 27
2:00-3:00 pm EST
Perpetrators of financial exploitation and other forms of elder abuse may exert undue influence to control the decision-making of their victims. Learning to recognize signs of undue influence will help legal and aging network service providers prevent or redress elder abuse and enhance victims’ access to justice. Lori Stiegel and Mary Joy Quinn, nationally recognized experts on elder abuse and undue influence, will present an advanced webinar to help legal and aging network professionals understand the dynamics and indicators of undue influence, and the relationship of this psychological process to elder abuse and guardianship. During this training, Lori will discuss the concept and its connection to capacity and consent, tactics and process, and legal remedies. Mary Joy will provide an example of how undue influence is defined in California law and share an undue influence screening tool for Adult Protective Services that lawyers and other professionals should be aware of and can use in their own practice.

Webinar- The Hidden Nature of Elder Abuse
Tuesday, July 25th
1:00-2:00 pm EST
Few elder abuse cases enter the court labeled as crimes. Instead, elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation most often appear as underlying factors in a variety of civil, family and probate cases. This webinar discusses the hidden nature of elder abuse and how court and justice agencies can develop resources and tools to identify and improve their responses to elder abuse. Brenda K. Uekert (Ph.D.), Principal Court Research Consultant at the National Center for State Courts, has worked extensively in the areas of elder issues, domestic violence, and problem-solving courts. She is the founder and director of NCSC’s Center for Elders and the Courts—a national resource to the courts on aging issues, elder abuse, and guardianship. To register, visit here.
