The September 21 CLE, presented with CORA Good Shepherd Mediation, will teach mediation techniques to address elder estate and legal issues, elder abuse, ageism and more.

On September 21, the Philadelphia Bar Association is holding a virtual continuing legal education program to train mediators to handle disputes involving older adults.

Conflicts involving older adults are often particularly complex and raise issues not typically encountered in general mediation practice. The virtual one-day program, presented as part of an ongoing partnership with CORA Good Shepherd Mediation, will train mediators to provide assistance in conflicts that arise within the context of aging, such as illness and/or progressive disability, the death of a spouse, the sale of a treasured home, or simply the sense of loss that may accompany advancing age.

WHAT: Philadelphia Bar Association CLE, "Elder Issues Dispute Resolution Training"

WHEN: Tuesday, September 21, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (ET)

WHO (Speakers):

Sue Wasserkrug, Esq., program administrator, CORA Good Shepherd Mediation

Barbara E. Foxman, licensed clinical social worker, Lafayette Hill, Pa.

WHERE: The program will be presented virtually. A login link will be sent to registered attendees the afternoon prior to the program.
