This course description lists a sequence of units focusing on how aging affects an individual's ability to communicate. Besides general information about the course organization, specific information is provided on four short papers, in which students defend their views on critical issues of communication and aging, and on seven units of study. Topics for the units of study include (1) the centrality of communication (images of elders and the aging process), (2) physiological changes that mitigate effective communication, (3) social service programs that facilitate human interaction, (4) interpersonal communication and aging, (5) family communication and aging, (6) the taboo topics of death and sexualtiy, and (7) mass communication and aging. The descriptions of the units of study all contain brief overviews and lists of instructional materials (readings and audiovisual aids). A list of five general resources on communication and aging are appended. (RL)
