In Memoriam - Lori Stiegel

Lori Stiegler

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Lori Stiegel, 63, of Washington, D.C., who was lost to breast cancer on March 28, 2020. All of us with the Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center will miss her and her tremendous contributions to the victim services field. As an expert in elder abuse, she was devoted to public interest law and committed her life’s work to that effort— first at the Center for Social Gerontology in Michigan, then as a legal services developer at the state Office on Aging in Georgia, and at the Senior Advocacy Unit of Bay Area Legal Services in Tampa, Florida. Following this start, she worked for the American Bar Association’s Commission on Law and Aging for more than 30 years. She co-wrote numerous publications on elder abuse and served for 8 years on the board of the National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse. Lori was licensed to practice law in Florida, Georgia, and Washington, D.C. She is survived by her father Richard, and we share our deep condolences with him, all of her friends and family, and everyone who was fortunate enough to benefit from her dedicated work.

March Expert Q&A Recording

Expert Q&A LogoA recording of the March Expert Q&A session on “Helping Survivors of Multiple Victimizations” is now available, along with a copy of the PowerPoint on our Expert Q&A page.

Polyvictimization refers to having experienced multiple victimizations, such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, bullying, and exposure to family violence, and occurs when individuals experience different kinds of victimization, rather than multiple episodes of the same kind of victimization. Understanding the prevalence, occurrence, and identification of polyvictimization across all generations is essential for victim advocates and other victim-serving professionals to help ensure that the right types of assistance, support, and intervention are made available.
