Training Materials in Aging. An Annotated International Bibliography.
Brookes, Toby, Comp.
This bibliography lists training programs and training materials, both print and audiovisual, related to aging irrespective of the source of language used. Materials emanate from Australia, Canada, Chile, Israel, New Zealand, Norway, the former Soviet Union, Thailand, the United Kingdom, and the United States as well as from several international organizations: the International Labor Organization, HelpAge International, and the International Federation on Ageing. The volume is organized into 11 sections according to subject matter: general training, community services, health, caregiving, institutional care, intergenerational programs, voluntarism, religion, employment, life course planning/retirement planning, and women. In a number of cases, a training program could have fit under more than one subject category, but it is placed in what was felt to be the most appropriate category with cross-references provided. The bulk of the volume is devoted to the description of training programs that are listed alphabetically within each section or subsection. Programs using only written materials precede programs incorporating audiovisual components, which are listed separately as "Audiovisuals." References to other resources, such as books and organizations, are found at the end of a section or subsection under the heading "Resources." Each entry consists of title, source, and annotation.
