Free Knowledge and Resistance Seminar

SW Washington Elder Abuse Prevention Coalition (SWEAP) is happy to announce that we are kicking off a FREE COMMUNITY EDUCATION SEMINAR SERIES in 2018! SWEAP received a grant from the Clark County Realtor Foundation to bring education about issues important to seniors and their caregivers, with the goal of reducing incidents of elder abuse, mistreatment and exploitation in our community and improving community response to such incidents.

We chose the title Knowledge and Resilience Seminar Series”.

KNOWLEDGE is what allows people to maintain control over their own circumstances and to intervene effectively on behalf of others. We want to create a strong base of knowledge in the community with our seminar series.

RESILIENCE means adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress. Everyone should strive for resilience. We are aware that seniors and their caregivers are experiencing adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress at high rates. We plan to give tools for developing resilience with our seminar series.

We invite you to join us for our second of four lectures:

Legal Responses to Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation”

Date: June 26, 2018

Time: 8:30 to 3:45 p.m.

Location: Keller Williams Premier Partners - 2211 E. Mill Plain Blvd. (Parking is free)

Our topics for this session will be on:

Vulnerable Adult Protection Orders

How does law enforcement investigate?

Financial exploitation and how financial institutions are alerted

Power of Attorneys - Guardianships

This is FREE to anyone who would like to attend. We will apply for CLE and CEU credits for legal and guardianship professionals to receive education credits. We will be providing a light continental breakfast, lunch as well as snacks and drinks throughout the day. Seating is limited to 100. Please RSVP as soon as possible – we think this will fill up quickly!
