APS TARC Webinar: Innovative Responses to Self-Neglect

Self-neglect allegations are investigated by most APS programs across the U.S. and Territories and make up a large part of APS staff caseloads. As the larger APS field is learning about working more effectively with these complex cases, and with the addition of new APS grant funding, many APS programs are exploring alternative responses to working with self-neglecting individuals. This webinar explores how APS programs in Colorado, Oregon, and Tennessee are utilizing partnerships and developing and piloting innovative policy and practice in responding to self-neglect.
