Everyone has personal biases and stereotyped beliefs to some degree.  It is critical to identify our beliefs and challenge ourselves to grow  in order to most effectively serve our clients.

Tasks:

Describe your personal beliefs about aging with respect to physical,  cognitive, and psychosocial domains. Which aspects of aging do you view  positively? Which aspects do you view negatively? What influences your  belief system? If you identify a negative stereotype related to aging or  older adults, identify one activity you could engage in to increase  your understanding of this stage in the life span.

Note: Express your honest beliefs in this  assignment; however, keep in mind that respectful language and  terminology must be used at all times.
