The training will address the effects of high conflict, litigious, and vindictive behaviors on the elder as well as family members and other stakeholders, and how to manage these behaviors within the family unit. It will also cover exploitation, neglect and abuse of elders, domestic violence, substance abuse, as well as cognition issues in the elderly.
