This webinar for judges and judicial officers introduces the concept of capacity as a continuum of abilities to be reviewed in context. Participants will learn how ageist assumptions can lead to unfounded doubts about capacity, as well as ways in which the effects of abuse can be misconstrued as signs of a lack of capacity. How best to use professional evaluations of capacity and a roadmap for making capacity determinations will also be discussed.
