More Than A Statistic: A Discussion for Older Adults on Trauma and Resilience
June 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
CARIE is proud to host Katie Block MSW, MPH from The National Clearing House for Abuse in Later Life (NCALL) who will lead a discussion intended for older adults, family members, caregivers and professionals. The goals for this presentation are:
- Help older adults recognize the signs of trauma that can occur after crime victimization or exploitation. Trauma is an individual experience and other factors (i.e. health, economic, environment) can play a role.
- Highlight local community resources that are available to assist older adults who have experienced crime victimization and elder abuse.
- Share the message that there are opportunities to build on the resilience many older adults already have in the aftermath of a victimization.
