This session is the first of a two-part train-the-trainer series that aims to have other agencies present this information to their communities. The emphasis is on learning the content of elder abuse (definition, categories, indicators, demographics, contributing factors, barriers, resources) with the goal of preventing it at your organization. The second part is a free event at your agency’s location and includes agency-specific instruction on how to present this information to the community.
