Hunter, Mary L., Ed.
The symposia were sponsored by the New England Gerontology Center, New England Center for Continuing Education, Durham, New Hampshire. The purpose of the symposia was to provide trainers and others involved in continuing education for the elderly an opportunity to become better acquainted with current developments in gerontology and to discuss training curriculum and techniques best suited for their audiences. Participants included educators involved in teaching courses on aging, trainers of staff members of service programs for the elderly, and personnel from state and local aging programs. In the second symposium, there was special emphasis on educational services for older people themselves. The faculty consisted of leaders in the field of gerontology from throughout the New England region. These proceedings include some of the conference papers which deal with such topics as cross-cultural studies and program design and implementation. (Author/NG)
