Abstract (summary)

The purpose of this multiple case study was to describe community members' perspectives of the role the Intergenerational Dialogue Process served in changing resident's attitudes and behaviors in two Midwestern rural communities. Approximately one year after their involvement in the Intergeneration Dialogue, ten people (five from each community) were interviewed to describe if participating in the Intergenerational Dialogue changed their attitudes and behaviors toward seeking solutions that could resolve rural community issues. Three themes emerged from the interviews: understanding the generations, community action, and changes in communities. The findings of this research outlined changes in the participant's attitudes toward other generational perspectives and their willingness to work together that resulted from their experience of the Intergenerational Dialogue.
