Elder Abuse Training - Online event

About this Event

Financial Counselling is offering a final session of online elder abuse training a virtual training session about assisting older clients experiencing abuse (elder abuse). We will run another if there is demand. To register interest for another session please email

The session will be held using Zoom and run from 9 am – 2:00 pm (AEST). Please see below for a breakdown of times by state.

We are using an online whiteboard tool called Mural which is like a big whiteboard with sticky notes. It’s easy to use but can seem overwhelming without practice, we will be running an introduction to Mural course that is complimentary to elder abuse training prior to each workshop. This session will run for half an hour and is a prerequisite to elder abuse training. You must complete the Mural training to do the elder abuse training. You can register for Mural training here.

Having two screens, so you can see the whiteboard and the zoom would be ideal and means we can make the session interactive. (But if you don’t we can make everything work.) If you are working in a group please ensure that all participants have access to their own computer. If they do not please email us.

The facilitators are Kat Lane (lawyer), Karyn Schluter-White (training consultant).

We'll also send out some of the materials we’ll be referencing in the workshop, but you don’t need to do anything other than have these on hand to look at. Unlike a face to face workshop, we can’t give you handouts, so this is the next best thing.

The learning outcomes are:

  • Be better equipped to support older clients who may be experiencing abuse
  • Challenge assumptions and reactions based on ageism
  • Recognise the indicators of elder abuse
  • Apply a variety of tools to help you respond and communicate to clients experiencing elder abuse
  • Respond when you do identify abuse by using a range of strategies including safeguarding, reporting and intervention

We’ll be using a variety of training techniques in exploring this topic including small groups, case studies, video examples and drawing on your own experiences.
