Although the data about transgender elders and trauma is still limited, the research that does exist indicates both high levels of traumatic history and significant implications for health and wellness. Many transgender and non-binary individuals experience higher than average abuse, violence and neglect than non-transgender peers throughout their lifespan. This webinar shares available data and focuses on the service implications of working with transgender older adults who are often hesitant or unwilling to access care, live with higher rates of mental and physical health conditions, need the sensitivity of both trauma- and trans-informed providers, and who may need support with key social and interpersonal skills to effectively receive the care  and services they need.
