Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This study investigated the occupational needs of LGBTQ young people in a transitional housing facility. Primary needs identified were home management, work and work preparation, social skills, and financial management. OTs can develop programming for young people that addresses independent living skills for residential stability using a developmental, trauma-informed, occupation-based approach.
