3rd Annual Elder Abuse Conference

Over 250 professionals attended Legal Assistance for Seniors' 3rd Annual Elder Abuse Conference at the Hilton Oakland Airport on April 30 and May 1, 2007. Thank you for making it such a success!


A Look Back at the 2007 Conference

Registration CrowdThe 3rd Annual Elder Abuse Conference was attended by 255 individuals representing the private bar, law enforcement, legal and social service providers, fiduciaries, state and local government, and health care. The majority of attendees were from California; however, one participant represented the Provincial Government of Alberta, and others came from North Dakota, Arizona, Idaho, Texas and Oregon.

The conference began in 2005 as a way of providing a quality learning and networking environment for those dedicated to elder abuse prevention. Net income from the event is used to support services to elder abuse clients. Elder abuse cases account for 19% of the total caseload at LAS.

Dr. Bennett Blum at April 30, 2007 luncheonThe 2007 conference included a General Session presented by Lisa Nerenberg, a well-known Bay Area expert in the field of elder abuse prevention; a luncheon presentation by Dr. Bennett Blum, internationally renowned expert in the field of undue influence on the elderly; and another by Dr. Lisa Gibbs, a member of the Elder Abuse Forensic Center in Orange County, on the subject of forensic markers of abuse and neglect. There were five workshop sessions with six concurrent workshops each.

LAS board member and elder abuse attorney Daniel Murphy presented the LAS "Leading the Fight for Seniors' Rights" Lifetime Achievement Award to Lisa Nerenberg for her continuing work in the field of elder abuse prevention.

May 1, 2007 LuncheonContinuing education credits were awarded to attorneys, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, and Marriage and Family Therapists.

Attendees enjoyed getting to know each other at a reception on Monday evening, and many chose to ride a ferry across the bay to AT&T Park where they watched the San Francisco Giants play the Colorado Rockies.

We are proud of a statement made by Rodney Low, a program developer with the State Bar of California, who wrote “…this event has now become the benchmark event for the Elder Abuse Prevention community and is quite successful in its own right.”
