Looking at Ageism through an Intergenerational Lens

Thursday 22nd September 2022, 1:30pm - 3:00pm
Zoom virtual meeting

Ageism can affect how we think and feel about people we perceive to be ‘young’ or ‘old’ and how we feel about our own ageing process. Negative attitudes about age and about getting older are widely present in our communities and affect how we look at our ageing and older people.

‘Ageism is the assumption that a persons age can tell you almost everything about them.’ This can affect people to the extent that it is like a self-fulfilling prophecy.

This session will explore ageism through an intergenerational lens looking at how stereotypes affect us all, young and old and how we can challenge ageism.

Guest speaker – DWIGHT C. K. TSE, School of Psychological Sciences and Health will cover ageism and some of the work that he has been involved in. A short Q & A session will take place after Dwight’s talk.
