Syracuse, New York’s “Long Game” for Adopting Restorative Approaches to Elder Abuse
Webinar #1 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).

In 2016, a small group of Syracuse, New York service providers and researchers gathered to explore restorative justice approaches to elder abuse. Recognizing the challenges they faced, the group developed “the long game,” which began with a qualitative research project to evaluate service providers’ perceptions of using RJ in this context. They went on to explore RJ approaches to elder abuse around the world, which resulted in an article analyzing existing efforts and offering recommendations and a conference that brought together leaders of the RJ and elder abuse movement to share models and expertise. The presenters will discuss their research, tentative conclusions, and their “eCORE Project,” which offers community building and conflict resolution circles to seniors.
