It's Not Right! Neighbours, Friends & Families

 

 

 

 

 

Representing the very best collective thinking in Canada for public education on abuse and neglect of older adults. It’s Not Right! Neighbours, Friends & Families (INR-NFF) was originally developed by The Centre for Research & Education on Violence against Women & Children (CREVAWC) at the University of Western Ontario.  BC CRN is the authorized provider of this program in British Columbia.

Community Presentations (For the Public)

The public is welcome to book a 45-minute to 2 hour presentation or workshop for their organization or community group.

Presentation participants will learn to:

  • Recognize the warning signs and risk factors of senior abuse.
  • Recognize the role ageism plays in abuse.
  • Recognize the impact of abusive behaviour.
  • Hold supportive and respectful conversations.
  • Who to refer to, and where to find help.

Presentations are FREE and there are no pre-requisites to apply!  Please review the INR library for more information.

Presenter Training (For Future INR Workshop Facilitators)

Community presenters work with local CRNs to deliver public presentations and workshops. BC CRN welcomes the public to become INR community presenters.  Individuals must first complete training, and be certified by BC CRN before any presentations are conducted.

To help with conducting a successful presentation, it is useful to have:

  • Previous experience or some knowledge in facilitating group discussions and managing sensitive questions.
  • A general knowledge of the topic of adult abuse, neglect and self-neglect.

Presenter training workshops are FREE and there are no pre-requisites to apply!  Please review the INR library for more information.


Please contact your regional mentor or the Coordinator of Programs if you’re interested holding a community workshop or participating in upcoming training opportunities.
