Title: Introducing standards and guidelines: A rationale for defining the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of intergenerational practice

Author (s):  Vicki Rosebrook, Elizabeth Larkin

Abstract:  This article traces the history of efforts to professionalize the Intergenerational field through the development of competencies and standards for practice in different program settings and roles. The authors propose a new set of Guidelines & Standards that identify a common knowledge base to begin unifying this specialized field and to ensure effective professional practices. The new Guidelines & Standards were widely disseminated for feedback, revised several times, and are now being piloted in a graduate program at The University of Findlay.
