Register for the Trauma Informed Counseling for Older Adults Webinar

Join the U.S. Department of Justice’s Elder Justice Initiative for a free webinar about addressing trauma in older victims of crime.

Many older adults have been exposed to trauma in their lifetime and the accumulation of past trauma experiences can exacerbate symptoms related to a current trauma.

During this webinar, clinical psychologist Sheri Gibson, Ph.D. will discuss—

  • the importance of referring older survivors of crime to counseling services,
  • factors that increase risk for future victimization,
  • how counseling services can help a survivor and aid the professionals working with them,
  • counseling resources available to older adults, and
  • issues around cultural sensitivity and ethical dilemmas.

Date: Thursday, January 27, 2022

Time: 2:00–3:00 p.m., eastern time
