July 6, 2023, 1pm-2:30pm (Qld time)
Hosted by: Community Legal Centres Queensland

Older people are victims or coercive control and the abuse inflicted on them is most commonly at the hands of an adult child. In this webinar, our presenters Leanne Collingburn (HopgoodGanim Lawyers); Bill Mitchell and Angela Carroll (Townsville Community Law Inc) will:

  • Examine where elder abuse sits within broader discussions in Australia about coercive control law and policy reform;
  • Encourage key stakeholders to include elder abuse in these reforms; and
  • Provide case examples to demonstrate how to identify elder abuse in practice.

Please note this webinar will run for 1.5 hours.
