Elder Abuse and Neglect Screening Guidelines for Mediators

The ABA Section of Dispute Resolution Task Force on Elder Abuse Screening for Mediators has created guidelines that provide information about possible signs of elder neglect and abuse (physical, sexual, emotional, financial, social, and neglect), that negatively impact the ability of older adults to participate in mediation. The guidelines should be used to assess the appropriateness and design of mediation as a response to matters of decision making and disputes. Additionally, the guidelines offer considerations about the value of attorneys and other participants being present in the mediation process or the need for referrals to other professional services.
