Elder Justice for All

ID: 4392

Over 10,000 baby boomers will be turning 65 every day for the next 17 years and 1 in 10 will be a victim of elder abuse thus creating 1,000 victims a day! To address this ethical dilemma and human rights issue, multiple stakeholders gathered to create the Elder Justice Roadmap. As professionals and advocates, it is increasingly important that we familiarize ourselves with this roadmap and assess how we can participate no matter at what level of practice we serve - micro, mezzo or macro. This workshop will help professionals outside of Adult Protective Services envision a roadmap to elder justice through lecture, discussion and group exercises and explore what we can do to meet the goal of elder justice for all. Social work ethics will be compared to the Adult Protective Services' Code of Ethics in demonstrating how the roadmap may be interpreted among professions. *This workshop does not qualify for NBCC clock hours in ethics.

The Secret Life of Hoarding

ID: 1130

According to the International OCD Foundation (IOCD): "Hoarding has been a hidden disorder for many years and before the early 1990?s, there was little research on topic." Increased awareness with hoarding, throughout the lifespan, has occurred due to clinical issues such as unhealthy living conditions that impact individuals, families, and communities. This workshop, "The Secret Life of Hoarding" will concentrate on the older adult who meets the criteria of Hoarding Disorder as per the DSM 5. Participants will practice skills in working with the older adult who meets this criteria as well as identifying strategies for family members who are involved with an older adult who is diagnosed with this disorder.
