Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

Legal Skills: Legal Issue Spotting, Referrals & Intake

Full Description:

This session will offer guidance and practice tips for recognizing and classifying legal issues faced by older adults, with a focus on spotting elder abuse, income issues, and health care issues. The presenters will also share best practices for intake systems and discuss developing an effective referral network.  

Webcast participants will also receive practice tips and screening guides. The materials will be available at ncler.acl.gov.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.
