Education and Training in Aging: A Practical Guide for Professionals. Proceedings and Final Report of the Region VIII Symposia for Trainers in Aging.
Walmsley, Ginger M., Ed.
These proceedings are intended for use by educators, trainers, and others with responsibility for developing short-term educational programs in the field of aging. The articles are practical tools containing a wealth of concepts and suggestions for designing conferences, workshops, and short courses on aging. The articles were developed or assembled for three workshops conducted by the Rocky Mountain Gerontology Center (RMGC) during 1974-75 under a grant from the Administration on Aging. Material is divided into four major content areas: (1) Education for Aging; (2) Resources for Short-Term Training; (3) Resources in Gerontology; and (4) The Symposium Project Report. A major strength of the volume is that the program ideas described are practical rather than theoretical, and most have been tested by the authors and/or RMGC staff. (Author)
