Celebrating 20 years!
2013 marked the 20th year of the New York State Adult Abuse Training Institute (AATI), presented by the Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging of Hunter College on behalf of the New York State Office of Children & Family Services (OCFS). First held in September 1993, this year’s event brought together over 400 participants from a variety of public and private service providers where networking and sharing expertise was facilitated through an assortment of formal and informal workshops and activities. This year the focus of the AATI was on the relationship between the health of the worker and the health of the client, and brought together different perspectives to provide alternatives to improve client and worker health.

Protective Services for Adults staff; EISEP case workers; attorneys; law enforcement officers; nurses; physicians and other health care professionals; social workers in the fields of aging, health, mental health, housing, domestic violence intervention, legal, law enforcement and justice. As always, the commitment and energy of the participants and presenters were the most critical elements to the success of this annual event.
