Identity Theft Expert Advises on Why Elders are Targets for Scams and Financial Abuse
Date:6/19/2012

Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 19, 2012

The Society of Certified Senior Advisors will be hosting its June educational webinar, The Story You Won’t See on Law & Order: Why Elders Are Targets for Scams and Financial Abuse.

Specializing in issues of grief and loss, crisis intervention and trauma recovery, Hazel Heckers is an advocate counselor and resource for crime victims and their families. Her presentation will cover topics as far-ranging as examining the crimes against the elderly and people with disabilities, caregiver abuse, crime prevention, collaborative team building, Kinship Care issues, and helping victims and their families through grief and loss.

Hazel is the Victim Advocate for the Colorado Bureau of Investigations Identity Theft and Fraud Investigation Unit. She has been a leader in bringing to the forefront of the victim movement issues of elder abuse, crimes against people with disabilities and the special needs of those raising grandchildren and other family due to crime. Hazel was a vital member of the committee that wrote and worked to pass Colorado's At Risk Adult legislation that defines crimes against elders and people with disabilities and provides guidelines for enforcing the law. She assisted in writing and advocating for law enforcement protocols to respond to cases of caregiver abuse and facilitated the state's first Protocol for Response to At Risk Adults.

Hazel’s hands-on experience dealing with victims of fraud and her personal dedication to helping people overcome the trauma of such abuse offers a unique opportunity for anyone wishing to learn how to prevent elder abuse, and advise victims who may otherwise not know where to turn for help. “It is an honor to be invited into the lives of crime victims and to join with them in the process of healing” she says.

The webinar will take place on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 at 12:00 p.m. MST. It is a live event with a recording that will be available shortly after the conclusion of the webinar.

This is the latest of the extensive webinars being offered every month as on opportunity for members to stay up-to-date on critical issues. It is free of charge to SCSA members, and available to all members of the public wishing to further their knowledge in their commitment to the care of elders.
