Michelle Barnhart, Associate Professor of Marketing, OSU College of Business
As the elderly population grows, family, friends and paid providers increasingly assist older people. Learn how those helping can overtly or subtly treat elders as "old," meaning unaware, confused, dependent or at-risk, and thus create identity dynamics and conflicts. Barnhart will explain how by treating older people as valued adults, younger people can both provide valuable assistance and decrease their chances of threatening the older person’s identity and of creating conflict.
