Instructor:   Lisa Manuel, PhD Director, Changing Lives and Family Violence Programs, Family Service Toronto

Lisa Manuel has more than 20 years of experience working with seniors and caregivers. Dr. Manuel completed her Ph.D. in Sociology in 1995, focusing on how family members identify and define the dementia process and how these patterns of understanding impact on their ability to secure assistance from the formal care system. She is the author of FST’s “Breaking the Silence: Best Practices for Working with Older People Experiencing Abuse”. She was also instrumental in developing one of Ontario’s first elder abuse consultation teams and more recently lead the development of Pat’s Place – Ontario’s only safe haven for older people experiencing abuse.
