SOC 3322 - SOCIOLOGY OF AGING


Analyzes the influence of social interaction upon the process, stages, and problems of aging, particularly of older age. Student-conducted oral history is utilized not only as a catalyst for intergenerational understanding and respect, but also as a therapeutic social work technique designed to enhance the self-image of older people by having them look back over their personal histories and through that process help them to meet the human need to attain a self-appreciation of the validity and significance of their lives.
