LGBTQ older adults make up a growing share of both the overall LGBTQ population and the larger 65+ population. This webinar will explore special considerations and realities of being older and part of the LGBTQ+ community. Important statistics regarding the lived experiences of LGBTQ+ elders will be presented along with the concept of minority stress. Practitioners will be encouraged to explore their role in supporting these older adults through exploring a case study and key practice recommendations and strategies.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify key considerations of inclusion and experiences of LGBTQ+ older adults.
  • Discover methods of supporting LGBTQ+ older adults.
  • Impart three recommendations for addressing clinical considerations in working with LGBTQ+ older adults.
