Attitudes Toward Aging and Behaviors Toward the Elderly Among Young People as a Function of Death Anxiety
Salter, Charles A.; Salter, Carlota deLerma
Gerontology, 16, 3, 232-235, Jun 76
This study correlated Templer's Death Anxiety Scale among 65 college students with their attitudes and behaviors toward the elderly. There was no evidence for the anxiety-denial hypothesis that fear of aging and death results in repression of ideas associated with aging and with rejection of the elderly. (Author)
