Webinar #2 of 4 in CEJC's Webinar Series: Exploring Restorative Approaches to Elder Justice.
The webinar series is made possible by a grant from the van Loben Sels/RembeRock Foundation, and co-sponsored by the Institute on Aging (IOA) and the Legal Aid Association of California (LAAC).
The Waterloo Restorative Justice Elder Abuse Project, developed over two decades ago, remains one of the few programs of its kind serving older adults. Attendees to this session will preview a video depicting how the Waterloo program uses a peacemaking circle to reduce the harm to family relationships following financial elder abuse. The video’s producer and circle co-facilitators will discuss the benefits and challenges of applying restorative justice to elder abuse, potential applications and settings in which it can be used, and steps for implementing programs.
Eva Marszewski is founder and director of Peacebuilders (Canada), a nonprofit organization that provides restorative programs and services to young people and works towards effecting change in the justice and education systems.
Arlene Groh, retired consultant, Healing Approaches to Elder Abuse Waterloo (Ontario) and founding director of the Community Care Access Centre’s Restorative Justice Approach to Elder Abuse Project.
