dc.description.abstract "Intergenerational contact has shown to be associated with aging anxiety, ageist attitudes, and future time perspective. In past studies, more aging anxiety and ageist attitudes had negative associations with future time perspective, and intergenerational contact has shown to reduce these views. However, the majority of these studies have focused on older adults. The goal of this study was to examine multiple correlations between family and non-family intergenerational contact, aging anxiety, ambivalent ageist attitudes, and future time perspective in young adults. It was hypothesized that these correlations would create a theoretical pathway from intergenerational contact to future time perspective. Results revealed that the majority of these correlations were significant in the expected directions and that the model was significant to future time perspective. These results indicate that interactions with older adults and views on aging can create significant influences on how young adults perceive their future." en_US
