A Drama Project about Older People's Intimacy and Sexuality
Hafford-Letchfield, Trish; Couchman, Wendy; Webster, Maxine; Avery, Peter
Educational Gerontology, v36 n7 p604-621 2010
This paper describes an intergenerational project developed in partnership between a social work degree program and an Older People's Theatre group. Bringing together a small group of students, older actors, and film makers, methods from drama and the arts were utilised to explore the topic of intimacy and sexuality in later life. The project produced digital stimulus learning materials. Formal evaluation identified beneficial outcomes for participants highlighting the advantages of older people's leadership in social work education and the transformative potential of the dramatic learning methods used. Such pedagogical approaches are essential to achieve genuine quality personalized outcomes for older people in contact with care services.
