The Adult Abuse Training Institute (AATI), presented by the Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging on behalf of the NYS Office of Children & Family Services (OCFS), brings together participants from a variety of public and private service providers where networking and sharing expertise will be facilitated through an array of formal and informal activities. The Institute will feature the perspectives of social service professionals, law enforcement, attorneys, workers in financial institutions and other professionals and share different methods of collaboration that have been effective in the struggle against abuse of vulnerable adults.

The goals of the AATI are always:

  • To build networks, collaboration, skill and knowledge of professionals working with vulnerable adults;
  • To promote the exchange of information, innovative thinking and best practices;
  • To improve the provision of services to protect vulnerable adults;
  • To nurture and sustain all those folks who are engaged in the effort to prevent and/or end abuse to adults in New York State.

The 2016 AATI, entitled Community Collaboration: How Partnerships Can Expand Your Toolkit, will focus on addressing areas of collaboration between APS with potential and existing community partners.
