I conduct study groups for adults entitled “A is for Aging: Changing Attitudes to Aging One Child at a Time”. We explore our own attitudes to aging as we examine the messages in a variety of children’s picture books. We discuss the effects of ageism on readers young and old along with strategies for talking about growing older with kids in positive ways. Please contact me if interested.
Recently I presented on ageism to a community college “Lifetime Psychology” class using Power Point and picture books. I enjoyed 90 minutes of terrific participation and interest–would love to do that again!
I’ve also presented on Children’s Picture Books as Anti-Ageism Tools in settings for older adults, and plan on expanding on this theme in other settings.
