Interpreting Aging to the Public

By Joseph S. Winston

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1956

The author discusses strategies for countering negative perceptions of elderly people in modern culture. The problem should be addressed in collaboration with elderly themselves, the author argues. He examines common categories of negative perceptions of the elderly, such as assumptions that they are an economic libaility, incapable of personal growth, in need of social isolation, and other assumptions. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, ed. by Sanford Sherman, v.33, no.1, Fall 1956, p.67-72.
