Lisa Nerenberg, MSW, MPH, is a consultant in elder abuse prevention. Previously, she directed the San Francisco Consortium for Elder Abuse Prevention at the Institute on Aging, which was one of the first elder abuse prevention programs in the country. Under her leadership, the Consortium piloted some of the country's first abuse prevention services and interventions, including a multidisciplinary team, a counseling program and support group for victims, and culturally specific outreach. She has provided training and technical assistance to local, state, and national organizations; developed comprehensive training curricula; and delivered keynote addresses, moderated panels, and made presentations at hundreds of professional forums in the United States and Canada. She has also testified before Congressional committees and served on governmental advisory committees and panels. She has authored dozens of articles, chapters, and publications on such far-ranging topics as coalition building, the role of culture and gender in elder abuse, financial abuse and the special needs of financial crime victims, daily money management, and the role of the civil and criminal justice systems in elder abuse prevention. A special area of interest is cross-disciplinary exchange among professionals in the fields of aging, criminal justice, victim-witness assistance, health and mental health, domestic violence, and adult protective services. Her website and blog address cutting edge issues in the field today.
