Old People's Attitudes Toward Other Age Groups' Beliefs and Opinions About the Aged.
Burris, Helen Brown
The need for research which will provide old people's evaluation of what is positive or negative about beliefs and opinions of other age groups about the aged forms the basis for the research proposed in this report. Six sections are included. The introduction, section 1, covers statement of the problem, and the purpose, need, assumptions, limitation, and hypotheses of the proposed study. The second section, Review of Literature, is an examination of the content and method of procedures of past research on the aged. The third section, Theoretical Orientation, discusses two theoretical approaches which note the relationship of attitudes toward the aged and their adjustment in later life. Procedure of the Study, the fourth section, briefly discusses the proposed study's sample, data and instrumentation, scaling method, and data analyses. The fifth section discusses implications of previous studies, noting and restating the need for further research due to the inconsistency in findings of research on attitudes toward the aged. The final section, Dissemination and Use, is a brief statement of how the proposed research findings could be used: To provide valid bases for parent education programs for intergenerational living to create positive environments for those who are presently old and for the future older generations.
