1. Williams, Lauren D. An exploration of the expressed levels of social support and isolationism of transgender older adults.

Degree: MSW, Social Work, 2019, California State University – Sacramento

Transgender older adults are amongst the most marginalized communities in the United States, both historically and presently. While many of the challenges experienced by this cohort are also common to the broader aging lesbian, gay, and bisexual population, the social support needs of this community are largely understudied. Alongside the inarguable amount of discrimination and obstructions that elder transgender individuals have experienced across decades, are the qualities of resilience and courage which should not be understated. This research examines the expressed levels of social support and isolationism of transgender older adults. A qualitative and exploratory research design will be utilized to identify statistically significant patterns by exploring six community members??? account of the status of their social support system. This, in turn, will be helpful the field of social work and, most importantly, this underserved community at large. Advisors/Committee Members: Nylund, David.

Subjects/Keywords: LGBTQ; Transgender seniors; Narrative therapy; Queer theory
