We live and work in a diverse world. One aspect of diversity is communicating with people from different generations. In a single day, we may interact with someone who is 80, 60, 35 or 22. Each person is part of a unique generation -- Matures, Baby Boomers, Gen X's or Gen Y's - with common experiences that shaped his or her values. Once we understand these attributes, we can appreciate and have better relationships with those we serve.  As caregivers and coworkers, we are more productive and satisfied when we can build bridges, not walls, between generations. This course examines issues and challenges related to intergenerational communications. Ethnicity, immigration and family dynamics are also integrated with widely-accepted research on the behaviors, perceptions and preferences of individuals from four generations. Caregivers will learn tips and techniques for connecting with others so they can be more effective in their roles.
