Abstract

As market demands for manpower supplies in gerontology increase, social work ought to review both its conceptual perspective and commitments to aging as a practice field. This paper analyzes some of the determinants of social workers' ambivalence as well as the defensive, crisis-oriented, and institutional-medical orientations toward gerontology in early social work education programs. It proposes a new framework for "second generation" curriculae that would be particularly sensitive to intergenerational transactions and quality of life factors. It would be community-based and also focus attention on the middle years.
