Our Training Courses

Why is there a need for these kinds of trainings?

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual communities have historically faced unique challenges over the past several decades and many of these challenges reside in the older LGBTQIA+ adults who came of age in a very different time. Our training recognizes that many people who work with older LGBTQIA+ adults can benefit from understanding the historical context of their experience. 

What is different about our training courses?

Our training is based upon the best science, review of the literature and trainings, and goes beyond mere information sharing. The Generations Aging with Pride (GenPRIDE) training courses offer research, video presentations, group exercises and other interactive sections that support the different learning process of adult learners.We offer multiple opportunities for participants to practice new skills, hone existing skills and teach the importance of the impact of language when working with this population.
