Event Details

The County’s Division of Senior and Adult Services (DSAS) will hold the seventh annual Elder Abuse Awareness Community Forum on June 10 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Conference Center at the Benjamin Rose Institute. (registration begins at 10:30 a.m.) This year’s Forum is entitled, “The Changing Face of Trauma: Healing Approaches for Victims and Professionals.”

 

The purpose of the Forum is to raise awareness of the issue of physical, emotional and financial abuse within a growing elder population. Last year in Cuyahoga County, over 2,300 adults were known survivors of abuse, neglect, self-neglect, abandonment and exploitation. Nationwide, it is estimated that only one in 23 incidents of abuse is ever reported.

 

This year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Jamie Marich. A life-long dancer and founder of Dancing Mindfulness, a facilitator training program, Marich is a clinical counselor who leads trainings and retreats on trauma, addiction and mindfulness worldwide. An author of several books on topics related to trauma and recovery, Marich actively trains facilitators in the Dancing Mindfulness practice and maintains a private clinical practice in Youngstown, Ohio.

 

“Even though there is momentum at the state level, we still have huge strides to take in addressing elder abuse,” said Natasha Pietrocola, Deputy Administrator for the County’s Adult Protective Services unit. “With a growing elder population right here in our own community, abuse continues to make an impact across all walks of life.”


The objectives for this year’s Forum include: describing the causes and impacts of traumatic stress on clients; learning about DSM-5® changes as they relate to PTSD and other trauma-related disorders; learning to serve clients in a more trauma-informed way; identifying ways to assist clients in dealing with the physical impacts of traumatic grief; differentiating between trauma-informed and trauma-focused care; understanding the roles of APS and BRI in the case management process; and practical application of the techniques shared during the forum.

 

Registration for the Forum is free for professionals and students. Attendees will receive 4.25 free CEUs.
