Wednesday, January 14: Free Webinar- Exploring Ethical Challenges of Legal Services Working on Elder Abuse Issues
Hosted by the National Consumer Law Center
Join us for a webinar on Jan 14, 2015 at 2:00 PM EST.
Increasing national focus on elder abuse and a push for greater legal services involvement, particularly in the area of financial exploitation, have led to a number of difficult ethical challenges. This webinar will examine: Ways in which ageist attitudes have shaped states’ elder abuse laws and how these attitudes – often unconscious – affect our approach to elder abuse, especially when clients are of questionable capacity; The critical need to establish and put in place, clear policies/protocols to guide involvement in abuse/exploitation cases and to ensure adherence to professional responsibilities, before legal programs get involved; and applying the policies/protocols and dealing with ethical challenges while working with elders and their families/third parties in the field.
Presenters: Penny Hommel, Co-Director, The Center for Social Gerontology, Jaye Martin, Executive Director, Maine Legal Services for the Elderly and Denis Culley, Staff Attorney, Maine Legal Services for the Elderly Additional sponsorship for this Webinar is provided by a grant from the Administration on Aging/Administration for Community Living. This webinar is part of a series of National Elder Rights Training Project webinars for the National Legal Resource Center. There is no charge for this webinar. All time listings are in Eastern Time.
