Great for supporting anti-ageist views. Approaches prejudice and discrimination well, and aims to enlighten learners on the importance of effective communication. Easy to read for learners of all abilities.
An essential text for students and professional in the understanding of aging
Very good book which I've included in my Intercultural Communication Module. It's useful for anyone with a text & discourse analytical interest in Ageing as there's so little out there.
would have liked to have seen more on intergenerational relationships. There is a chapter on this but it was disappointing as it said very little about younger generations
A good book but possibly too much of an in depth read for level 4 students
it addressed the exact topic of the seminar, it was an interesting read.
an easy read and relates well to the aging process, cutlural issues, family relationships, discrimination and prejudice. very thought prevoking
It is an important book for understanding the particular communication skills required when dealing with older adults. A good guide for acquiring the appropriate knowledge when dealing with this growing population segment.
This is an excellent resource for a number of subjects within gerontology. I found the issues around stereotypes and images of ageing useful for my module in particular. Students have found that content very accessible.
Well presented comprehensive text on communication and ageing suitable for those studying at specialist or post-graduate gerontological nursing level.
this is a book well organized, with essential information for students and easy to understand.
Needed something a bit more general regarding long-term care
Not broad enough coverage for a class on the psychology of aging. The coverage presented, however, was EXCELLENT for a more specialized course!
