Justice in Aging Advanced Webinar: Elder Abuse - The Impact of Undue Influence
Event Date: 
06.27.2017 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Time Zone: 
(GMT-08:00) Pacific Time
Short Description: 

Join Justice in Aging and nationally recognized experts on elder abuse and undue influence for this free special advanced webinar.

Full Description: 

Perpetrators of financial exploitation and other forms of elder abuse may exert undue influence to control the decision-making of their victims. Learning to recognize signs of undue influence will help legal and aging network service providers prevent or redress elder abuse and enhance victims’ access to justice.

Lori Stiegel and Mary Joy Quinn, nationally recognized experts on elder abuse and undue influence, will present this advanced webinar, Elder Abuse: The Impact of Undue Influence, to help legal and aging network professionals understand the dynamics and indicators of undue influence, and the relationship of this psychological process to elder abuse and guardianship.

During this training, Lori will discuss the concept and its connection to capacity and consent, tactics and process, and legal remedies. Mary Joy will provide an example of how undue influence is defined in California law and share an undue influence screening tool for Adult Protective Services that lawyers and other professionals should be aware of and can use in their own practice.  

Presenters:
Lori Stiegel, Senior Attorney, American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging
Mary Joy Quinn, Director (ret.), Probate, San Francisco Superior Court
