With live introductions and Q & A opportunities, this session will showcase the Webinar presented by the California Elder Justice Coalition about the Waterloo Restorative Justice Elder Abuse Project conceived and delivered by Arlene Groh, Executive Director. Developed over two decades ago, the Project remains one of the few programs of its kind globally serving older adults who have suffered abuse by care-givers, relatives and others. This session will show a video depicting how the Waterloo program used a Peacebuilding Circle to reduce the harm to family relationships following a case of financial elder abuse. The video’s producer and circle co-facilitators will discuss the benefits and challenges of applying restorative justice to elder abuse, potential applications and settings in which it can be used, and steps for implementing programs.
