NOON HOUR WEBINAR: Ageism: Nobody Has Said to Me, “You are an Old Person, Can you Share your Wisdom?
Presented by Dr. Karen Shilvock-Cinefro, DSW, LSW, NHA
Ageism is a form of discrimination and stereotyping. Research shows that the discrimination of individuals based on their age is quite prevalent in the field of medicine and social services. Through a comprehensive study of research on the gerontological, research on attitudes on aging, and a phenomenological hermeneutic study of women on the value of aging, information will be presented outlining the problems of social services to the aging population. Documented research will be presented showing the effects of ageism on individuals and society. Educational options will be explored, offering positive approaches to aging that will not only help the older adult but can then be reflected in younger generations.
