Summary:

This Webinar will be an introduction, demonstration, and explanation on how states and county APS programs can replicate the training for use in their jurisdictions. If you are looking for a tool to help explain to your service providers and community partners what APS is/is not, this workshop may support that effort. The PowerPoint and any additional handouts will be made available to you to download and adapt for your use in your state.

This training guide is a resource tool to help facilitate enhanced coordination of services to vulnerable adults suffering from abuse, neglect and or exploitation. The training guide is intended to help professionals in a multitude of disciplines and paraprofessionals recognize who is an APS client and what APS is/is not.

In addition, it is hoped that the training guide will facilitate a better understanding of the maltreatment experienced by the APS clients. This will assist in creating better collaboration and building a better protective network for abused and neglected adults.
