Social Work's Stephanie Julian Studies Sexual Orientation Disclosure

Social Work major Stephanie Julian (sponsored by Dr. Michael Vimont, Director of Social Work) will share her findings of her exploratory study on the decision making process initiated by lesbian and gay older adults in disclosing their sexual orientation to external systems. Her presentation is scheduled for the 10:30 a.m. URCA session in the Faculty Room of the Convocation Center on April 12. As explained in her abstract:
Ten older adults identified as lesbian or gay were interviewed in one-on-one sessions ... The study is not meant to generalize the populations, but rather to obtain rich stories from members of this population.
