About Our Training Curricula
At the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging, we often hear from organizations that work with older adults (and LGBT organizations who work with non-aged populations) that they are open to working with LGBT clients but are not sure of how to provide the best possible services. Sometimes organizations unintentionally make assumptions about LGBT older adults that can inhibit the quality of services, resulting in LGBT older adults being excluded or fearing less-than-equal treatment.
To address these issues, the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging, under the project lead of PHI in collaboration with seven other training partners, developed four separate 4-hour trainings: two for aging services providers and two for LGBT organizations. We offer your agency these trainings to all levels of staff and volunteers, to assist you in learning the best ways to create an inclusive, safe and welcoming environment for your LGBT older adult population.
Topics covered in the training curricula include:
Training Resources from Across the Country
Training to Serve
Howard Brown Health Center has developed ground-breaking curriculum for nurses, teaching cultural competency in the care of LGBT older adults in Illinois. This curriculum can be taught in a variety of healthcare and educational settings in Illinois and to nursing staff and students, as well as any other disciplines.
Gen Silent and A Caring Response
Uniquely designed to each provider or agencyâ€™s needs, structure and size, this cultural sensitivity training delivers the information and skill building tools needed to create a more welcoming environment that recognizes the diversity of all client populations, thereby improving the quality of care to all clients regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
“On behalf of the staff of CCCI, I wanted to warmly and enthusiastically thank you for your excellent presentation on LGBT Aging here at CCCI. I believe that this presentation made a real impact on the attendees and I think positive changes in our care management practice will follow as a result. We can't thank you enough!”
