Risk Factors for Abuse Against Older Adults: What Judges Should Know

Event Date
Thursday, July 11, 2024, 12:00PM

Dr. Jennifer E. Storey, PhD, is an Associate Professor in Forensic Psychology in the School of Psychology at the University of Kent, UK. Her research focuses on the assessment and management of violence including older adult abuse, stalking, and intimate partner violence.  Hon. Janice Martin (Ret.) is a retired judge from Kentucky and veteran faculty of the Enhancing Judicial Skills in Abuse in Later Life Cases Workshop (EJS-ALL), a project of Futures Without Violence and the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges.

Dr. Jennifer E. Storey’s focus on older adult abuse has resulted in the development of a violence risk assessment tool for older adult abuse called the Harm to Older Persons Evaluation (HOPE). She is also working on projects related to older adult homicide, risk factors for older adult abuse, and how to decrease risky decision making among older adults to reduce their vulnerability to financial abuse. During this webinar, Dr. Storey will utilize a case example to navigate participants through a discussion of factors that increase vulnerability for abuse amongst the older population, as well as factors that increase an individual’s potential to cause harm against older adults. Dr. Storey will discuss the HOPE risk assessment instrument and provide an opportunity for judges to consider how the risk data applies to judicial decision-making in cases of abuse.
