Today’s episode is with Dr. Natasha Ginnivan from University of New South Wales. Natasha is a research fellow in the school of psychology at UNSW and her work focuses on cultural attitudes to ageing, stereotypes and self-perceptions.

Our conversation really focussed on how our self-perceptions of our own ageing can have long term health effects, and how things like media portrayal, cultural values and intergenerational environments can reduce or exacerbate these effects.

We also briefly spoke about an exciting Virtual Reality based project Natasha was part of that harnessed the immersive nature of the technology to deliver an emotionally affecting experience on the subject of dementia.

As always you can hear Daniella and Maurie’s take and thoughts about these ideas in their show Who Cares? which is released every Friday.
