Please join OVWA and the Ohio Attorney General’s Elder Justice Unit for “Elder Abuse: Hidden Victims, Hidden Crimes”. This workshop provides participants with an understanding of the signs and symptoms of elder abuse, the misconceptions and myths associated with elder abuse, and the skills necessary to respond effectively to the needs of the older clients they serve. Learn the signs of elder abuse and learn how to protect older vulnerable adults from financial abuse including scams targeting seniors. This workshop will examine some of the common age-related changes and characteristics that can increase vulnerability to different forms of abuse. We’ll discuss special considerations in understanding older victims and common challenges in serving older adults and their families. This webinar is pre-approved for 1.5 CEU's from the State of Ohio CSWMFTB and OVWA training programs are pre-approved through both the Ohio Advocate Network and the National Advocate Credentialing Program.
