Dr. Carolyn A. Bradley, Associate Professor of Social Work at Monmouth University, has 25 years of clinical experience in individual, group, and family therapy with a specialty in addiction recovery and a subspecialty in lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender issues.
One of Dr. Bradley's research interests is in the area of aging. She and her fellow Dr. Kelly conducted a research between 2011 and 2012 on whether aging is the same for everyone. The research was then narrowed down to "investivage the health disparities among older LGBT adults and address the ussue of cultural competency with providers."
Based on the research, Dr. Bradley developed a training curriculum for care agencies to understand and attend to the needs of LGBT elders. The program aims at creating a more gay-friendly care environment for all LGBT adults. Right at Home of Central New Jersey is proud to become a partner of Dr. Bradley in presenting the training program.
The program - Cultural Competency Training - focuses on creating an awareness of the unique concerns and service needs of the LGBT elders. For more information, please visit the LGBT Older Adult Project info page of the Monmouth University.
