For Trainers

Trainers' Toolkit

The Trainers’ Toolkit offers several new and redesigned resources for trainers, including PowerPoint slide sets, interactive training exercises, and training modules. Trainers may use these components to create or enhance their own abuse in later life training. 

We also encourage you to visit our video library, which has more  than 30 video clips featuring subject matter experts discussing topics on providing services to older survivors of abuse to supplement your trainings.

Please contact us at ncall@ncall.us  if you wish to discuss your training with us or if you have any questions or comments.
