Abstract:

Abstract: This study examined ageism in social work students, which potentially could influence their choice to work with older adults. A sample (N = 122) of students from six California State Universities completed an online survey. The Relating to Older People Evaluation (ROPE) measuring positive and negative ageist attitudes and behaviors was the primary measure. Three questions from the Crowne Marlow Social Desirability scale were also included. Findings did not show conclusively that ageism is a factor among social work students. However, only a small percentage of the participants indicated that their current program specialization is older adults. Additionally, only a small percentage of graduate students reported wanting to work with seniors after graduation. This is similar to data published by the Council for Social Work Education and demonstrates that a workforce gap remains. Few competent geriatric social workers for the growing numbers of older adults are available.
