14th Annual Conference on Elder Abuse

Legal Assistance for Seniors’ Annual Conference on Elder Abuse brings together a multidisciplinary group of professionals working on the front lines serving older adults. This state-wide conference is an essential resource and networking opportunity for a wide range of professionals, including attorneys, social workers, private fiduciaries, conservators, public guardians, medical professionals, law enforcement officials, and others.

Join us to learn, network and share best practices so that together we can better support older adults. Light breakfast, coffee break and networking lunch are included.

Up to 5.5 hours continuing education credits are available for California Attorneys, Professional Fiduciaries, Behavioral Scientists (LMFT, LCSW, LPCC, and/or LEP), Psychologists (PhD/PsyD), and Registered Nurses. Sessions have also been approved as outside training for Public Administrators, Guardians, and Conservators through CAPAPGPC. A Non-Credit Certificate of Attendance is also available.
