Training Title:
Retired ~ Aging in the Transgender Community

Clock Hours: 1

By the time you complete this course, you should be able to: • Be able to use the correct basic pronouns in working with transgender people. • Understand the points on the gender spectrum • Recognize the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity • Understand the meaning of “micro-aggressions.” • Become sensitive to the way these micro aggressions can be very hurtful. • Become aware of the difficulties many older trans people face in their later years.

As transgender older adults age and need more care, they are more likely to run into discrimination and lack of understanding. They face profound challenges and experience striking disparities in areas such as health and health care access, physical and mental health, employment, housing and more. Unlike with younger transgender people, there has been less coverage around the problems and issues of older adults who have lived as transgender for decades. Rena McDaniel, LCPC, MEd, Certified Sex Therapist has extensive experience working with trans people of all ages, and she shares this with us here. Keywords: Aging, transgender, cultural competence
