Expectations for Communication with Positive and Negative Subtypes of Older Adults.
Harwood, Jake; Williams, Angie
International Journal of Aging & Human Development, v47 n1 p11-33 1998
Perceptions, expectations, and evaluations of intergenerational communication were examined. College students responded to an older adult target portrayed as "perfect grandparent" or "despondent." Their perceptions of conversation with that target were measured. Findings are considered in terms of theoretical models of intergenerational communication and intergroup theory. (Author/EMK)
