To date most practice methods, prograM.S. and disciplines in the health and human services are explicitly organized by age. Yet, there are a greater number of concurrent generations within families and four or even five generations are increasingly common. This article will discuss findings from a multigenerational curricular infusion project and examine key components of an innovative multigenerational practice framework that breaks down traditional practice paradigM.S. by cutting across age groups, populations and academic disciplines. Such an approach provides rich opportunities for multigenerational reciprocity and collaboration, and the development of important new educational models.
