Please join Theresa Roberts of PEAM (Prevent Elder Abuse MB) for this dynamic event. The workshop teaches citizens of all ages to recognize warning signs of abuse of older adults and to respond safely and supportively. True-to-life scenarios are used to facilitate discussion and to build skills.

The agenda will include:
- Learning to recognize warning signs and risk factors
- Discussion about ageism
- Scenarios – video presentations of situations of abuse and neglect
- Building skills: how to respond safely and supportively / how to have a conversation about suspected abuse
