Perpetrators of financial exploitation and other forms of elder abuse may exert undue influence to control the decision-making of their victims. Learning to recognize signs of undue influence will help legal and aging network service providers prevent or redress elder abuse and enhance victims’ access to justice.
Lori Stiegel and Mary Joy Quinn, nationally recognized experts on elder abuse and undue influence, present this advanced webinar, Elder Abuse: The Impact of Undue Influence, to help legal and aging network professionals understand the dynamics and indicators of undue influence, and the relationship of this psychological process to elder abuse and guardianship.
During this training, Lori discusses the concept and its connection to capacity and consent, tactics and process, and legal remedies. Mary Joy provides an example of how undue influence is defined in California law and shares an undue influence screening tool for Adult Protective Services that lawyers and other professionals should be aware of and can use in their own practice.
