The Effect of Aging Awareness Training on Knowledge of, and Attitudes towards, Older Adults.
Stuart-Hamilton, Ian; Mahoney, Berenice
Educational Gerontology, v29 n3 p251-60 Mar 2003
Before and 1 month after age awareness workshops, 200 British participants took the Palmore Aging Quiz and Fraboni Scale of Ageism. Palmore scores significantly improved but Fraboni scores were unchanged. Results suggest that increased awareness improves factual knowledge but does not change attitudes toward aging and older people. (Contains 18 references.) (SK)
