This year’s conference focuses on the role of technology in domestic violence in later life and the financial exploitation of older adults. Technology can be used by both victims and their perpetrators. For victims, it offers an avenue for accessing assistance and strategically maintaining safety and privacy. It also provides a way to remain connected to family and friends, increasing support for the victim and decreasing their sense of isolation. On the other hand, perpetrators can exert power and control over their victims by using it to stalk, snare and control. They can also use it to financially abuse older adults. The prevalence of internet use by older adults is rapidly increasing and research shows that compared to other age groups, they are more likely to be scammed and defrauded. As professionals and advocates, we need to know how to harness technology safely, appropriately and effectively so that we can increase the use of technology by victims and decrease the negative impact of perpetrators. Join us as experts provide a deeper understanding of technology’s role in the lives of older adults and the strategies for effectively supporting them.
From Phones to Facebook: Technology Abuse & Safety for Elders and Advocates: Keynote Speaker-Rachel Gibson, Senior Technology Safety Specialist at National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV)
Financial Exploitation-It’s Challenges and Opportunities: Presenter-Maureen Lokrantz, Vice President/Private Wealth Advisor for U.S. Bank Private Wealth Management
