Cusack, Sandra A.
Educational Gerontology, v21 n4 p305-20 Jun 1995
Using an emancipatory education model, 9 older women (65-85) were trained as research associates to conduct needs assessments of their peers. Posttest and focus group results support the effect of learning on seniors' mental, physical, and social health; increased self-esteem; and ability to express ideas and be heard. (SK)
