Older LGBT Adult Training Panels: An Opportunity to Educate About Issues Faced by the Older LGBT Community
Journal of Gerontological Social Work
Older lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) adults face unique issues that can impede their well-being. Although many advances have helped address these issues, there is a need for education efforts that raise awareness of service providers about these issues. This study explores evaluation data of training panels provided by older LGBT adults and the views of training participants on issues faced by the older LGBT community after attending the panels. Participants were 605 students and professionals from over 34 education and communication settings.Implications for trainings on participants and older LGBT trainers are discussed.
