Aging and Ageism: Mental Health Issues in the Wake of COVID-19
Audience: Adults
Description: Ageism is a major problem in the United States and around the world. Ageism has negative effects on the health and well-being of older adults, and can lead to bias and discrimination in healthcare, employment, and other settings. Dr. Haley reviews the evidence on the pervasive negative effects of ageism, and ways to change the widespread pessimism about aging among the general public and professionals. He notes recent research that documents that negative stereotypes about aging are false, and demonstrates how these have had ill effects during the COVID-19 pandemic. He also presents evidence about how older adults are generally showing remarkable psychological resilience during these challenging times.
