The Chair has given many conferences during the months of May and June. In May, the Chair was invited to present its works on bullying as well as those of Jessica Calvé on self-neglect to regional coordinators regarding mistreatment of older adults as part of their annual training days. In the continuity of this activity, Marie Beaulieu discussed with the Seniors’ Secretariat concerning the impacts of the works on scientific articles produced by Quebecers. 

Two conferences regarding the IPRAS project also took place. A first in collaboration with the Commander Miguël Alston to the Working Committee: Representatives of local coordinating committees mistreatment / older adults and partners dealing with mistreatment of older adults of Montréal. Then, a second in collaboration with Josée Blais of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) (City of Montréal Police Service) and Jenny Charest of the CAVAC of Montréal at the Crime Victims Assistance Office’s seminar (BAVAC; Bureau d'aide aux victimes d'actes criminels).

In June, Marie Beaulieu did nine conferences in Australia through various activities. Two of them were during the World Elder Abuse Awareness Day held in Adelaide on June 16th as well as the 13th Global Conference of the International Federation on Aging held from June 21st to June 23rd in Brisbane. As part of her conferences, she discussed about the Bridging project and the IPRAS project, but also about intersystem collaboration as well as discussing about the Governmental Action Plan to Counter Elder Abuse (2010-2015 extended until 2017). The various activities in which she participated allowed her to speak to a wide audience: public policy planners, administrators of community organizations, lawyers, police officers, psychosocial practitioners, etc.
