Although guardians are intended to protect adults from abuse, neglect, or exploitation, they may in some rare circumstances become perpetrators of such actions. This webinar from NCLER will highlight cases in which guardians have taken advantage of their positions and discuss what an advocate can do to intervene. Presenters will cover the basics of detection and review options for reporting as well as court response and intervention.
