Technical Assistance Briefs
A major objective of the National Adult Protective Services Resource Center (NAPSRC) was to provide targeted technical assistance on problems identified as commonly experienced by APS systems in investigating alleged maltreatment and providing secondary prevention. In the spirit of this objective, the NAPSRC held monthly technical assistance calls that are open to all state-level APS administrators. Each call consisted of a discussion around a particular topic of current relevance to administrators. At the conclusion of each call, one or more members of the NAPSRC Technical Assistance Team drafted a brief that summarized the call contents for dissemination to state or local APS staff.
Below is a list of developed briefs.
- Clinical Issues in Supervising APS Practice
- Fundamentals of APS Supervision
- Working with Cases Involving Mental Illness
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act: Implications for Adult Protective Services
- Investigation Protocols
- Caseload Management
- The Complexities of Cognitive Capacity
- Working with Prosecutors
- Evidence-Based APS Practices
