Innovative Perspectives in Elder Abuse Interventions: Working with Victims and Perpetrators Workshop

Thousands of older adults in New York are abused, neglected, and exploited every year, and the number is growing. JASA’s Elder Abuse Training Institute is an interdisciplinary program, which improves the understanding of and response to the various forms of elder abuse. The Institute educates social service, health, legal, and financial professionals as well as the public.

These workshops are provided by JASA in partnership with Lifespan of Greater Rochester, Inc. and Brookdale Institute for Healthy Aging of Hunter College.

This program is funded in part by Lifespan of Greater Rochester, Monroe County Office for the Aging, NYC Council through the DOVE Initiative, New York State Office for the Aging, US Administration on Aging, and participant contributions.

All workshops take place at

This workshop highlights new approaches to services for both victims of elder abuse and the perpetrators. Participants will learn intervention techniques including employing the “Life Event Screening Tool,” which helps identify trauma to help older victims address their own victimization. In this workshop, participants will also learn about the S.E.A.M. program (Stop Elder Abuse and Mistreatment) that tries to provide a “third alternative” to holding elder abusers accountable, yet achieving interventions that older victims will accept. This unique program confronts perpetrators about their abusive behaviors and attempts to facilitate change to prevent further abuse.
