WEBCAST
Guardianship Termination and Restoration of Rights

11:00 AM (Pacific) | HOST: National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER)
FEE: No charge | REGISTER

Guardianship is one of society’s most drastic interventions to assist individuals identified as vulnerable and in need of care and protection. While guardianship may be necessary for some, many adults languish under guardianship, despite the availability of less restrictive options or a change in circumstances that render the guardianship unnecessary. An unknown number of guardianships were never necessary in the first place. There is no data on how often and under what circumstances termination of guardianship and restoration of rights actually occurs, but anecdotal evidence suggests most guardianships last a lifetime.

This free webcast, Guardianship Termination and Restoration of Rights, explores strategies for successful termination and restoration of rights. This session will review recent cases, including a firsthand account from an attorney who was successful in restoring the rights of an older client. Much of the session’s discussion will incorporate the emergent concept of supported decision-making, which has brought attention to restoration of legal rights and identifying the supports that should be a critical part of restoration.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

PRESENTERS
Melissa Keyes, Legal Director, Indiana Disability Rights
Dari Pogach, Staff Attorney, American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging
Morgan Whitlatch, Project Director, National Resource Center for Supported Decision-Making
Erica Wood, Assistant Director, American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging

NOTE: This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly.

WEBCAST
Using Supported Decision-Making to Avoid Guardianship: Screening with the PRACTICAL Tool and Beyond

11:0 AM (Pacific) | HOST: National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER)
FEE: None| REGISTER

Guardianship is a drastic intervention that should only be considered when all other options fail to meet the urgent needs of the person. Lawyers and advocates working with older adults should be aware of other less restrictive tools to help individuals identified as vulnerable and in need of assistance. This webcast will highlight Supported Decision-Making (SDM) and the PRACTICAL Tool. The PRACTICAL Tool walks users through options and concerns in using SDM to determine a person’s needs, existing and required supports, and options. The person-centered and person-driven decision-making model of SDM leverages the ability to empower adults to make decisions across the spectrum of capacity. SDM helps supporters understand the values of the person, enabling them to offer better advice and options for the person.

After this session, attendees will:

  • Have a test to apply before guardianship should be considered
  • Be able to describe how to practice SDM
  • Be able to apply the steps of the PRACTICAL Tool
  • Be able to articulate the importance of personal values in decision-making

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

WEBINAR
Prior Trauma, Aging and the Experience of Care Recipients

10:0 AM - 11:00 AM (Pacific) | HOST: Alzheimer's Foundation of America
FEE: None| REGISTER

This presentation will review the impact of extreme trauma, as well as the immediate and long-term effects on aging trauma survivors and their families. Research shows that trauma during earlier times in life influences the way one ages, physically and mentally, and the way one experiences the process of aging and the losses that are often associated with it. The presentation aims at increasing participants’ familiarity with the symptoms and signs of trauma in elderly individuals, which may differ from younger individuals. The presentation will also sharpen sensitivity to the unique vulnerabilities and needs of aging trauma survivors, which are often missed due to a multitude of other complicating factors when dealing with aging individuals.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Irit Felsen, PhD is a clinical psychologist born in Isreal and living in the USA, specializing in the treatment of trauma and traumatic loss. Dr. Felsen is an Adjunct Professor at Yeshiva University in New York City, a researcher with the Yale Trauma Study Group, and maintains a private psychotherapy practice in Mountain Lakes and in Englewood, NJ.
