This section of the toolkit is designed to:

  • Provide individuals with information about personal strengths and areas for growth with respect to attitudes about aging and ageism;
  • Stimulate internal dialogue and reflection about how to challenge unconscious prejudices about aging;
  • Discover how myths and stereotypes about aging, both positive and negative, shape our personal and professional lives;
  • Develop a culture of elderhood based on value and appreciation of age and the aging experience
