Since 1993, the Colorado Coalition for Elder Rights and Abuse Prevention (CCERAP) has established a secure reputation throughout Colorado for providing exceptional training opportunities and in-depth information, addressing the most challenging issues facing the elderly. CCERAP’s activities focus on the identification, prevention and treatment of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation (including financial exploitation). CCERAP provides education, training opportunities for professionals in the aging services network, and resources and referrals for all citizens of Colorado.
This is accomplished by quarterly training meetings, newsletters, a website, and collaboration with other organizations and agencies.
Presented by: Dr. Sheri Gibson, PhD.
This training will emphasize the importance of providing person-centered and trauma-informed care as a vital component to ensuring care recipients are involved in and respected for their individual differences and past traumatic experiences. Placing people at the center of their care has multiple benefits including improving the quality of services provided, helping people obtain the care they need when they need it, empowering people to be more active in their care, and reducing some of the pressures experienced by those working in law enforcement, protective agencies, and the helping professions. The training is tailored with the goal of better serving Colorado’s most vulnerable community members and their families while continuing to embrace a culture of partnership, collaboration, and individual empowerment.
Learning Objectives for Trauma-Informed Care Training
Who Should Attend? Social work practitioners, medical, psychologists and mental health, legal/judicial, law enforcement officials and personnel, home care placement agencies, court-appointed guardians and conservators, community-center board staff and clergy.
