Intergenerational Programmes: Is There a Case For Their Encouragement?

Australian Social Work

Author: Binks, P.
Year: 1989
Type: Journal Article


Intergenerational programmes are springing up at a 'grass roots' level in South Australia and interstate, characterised by the involvement of non-social work professionals. Some of these programmes in South Australia are a result of the focus on oral history and the elderly, which evolved as part of South Australia's 1986 Sesquicentenary celebrations. Theoretical consideration of the potential intrapsychic and general benefits, plus the perceived success of examples described, combine to make a convincing argument for the further encouragement of these schemes which appear to benefit not only the generations involved but the community as a whole. The author makes a plea for the social work profession to use the 1988 Bicentennial celebrations as a starting point for developing a commitment to this fascinating community resource.
