This course was funded by the Office for Victims of Crime.
NW3C is looking for qualified and passionate professionals
to enroll in our innovative Train-the-Trainer (T3) program. Through a supportive
partnership with the Office for Victims of Crime, NW3C has created a 2-day
training titled Victim Centered Responses to Elder Exploitation (VCREE) to help
law enforcement, finance and banking professionals, APS workers, and other
professionals combat elder exploitation using a trauma-informed approach.
Individuals who complete this T3 course will work with NW3C to deliver a 4-hour
training to others within their industry or community.
This training is broken down into three components. During
the first four-hour training block, participants will gain an understanding of
trauma and how it can affect victims and develop strategies for responding to
elder exploitation using a trauma-informed approach. During the next four-hour
block, students will dive into adult learning principles and discuss
presentation skills. The second day will include a group practicum presentation
that will provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate what they’ve
learned and receive feedback from our instructors. Following the completion of
this course, participants will become VCREE instructors.
There is a growing need for trauma-informed professionals
to tackle issues of elder abuse and exploitation. The T3 allows interested
professionals to not only learn about trauma-informed practices in cases of
elder exploitation, but also develop the skills needed to teach others. By
participating in this T3 with other professionals, and committing to teaching 25
people in your community, together we’re increasing and improving the number of
older adults who will have access to qualified assistance. To provide further
support, T3 participants will have access to NW3C’s instructor resources, our
WebEx platform, and assistance from experts in live-online training as you share
this course with your professional network.
Please review the Memorandum of
Agreement that will be required from you on the first day of class to qualify
for this program.
