SELF-ACTUALIZATION AND LOCUS OF CONTROL AS A FUNCTION OF INSTITUTIONALIZATION AND NON-INSTITUTIONALIZATION IN THE ELDERLY
Adaptation to the aging process in American society would appear to represent a problem for at least a portion of the elderly population. This research represents a limited attempt to bring additional insights to bear on the adaptive portion of the aging process. Both groups of the elderly (institutionalized and non-institutionalized) indicate an externally oriented view of the social environment in which they exist. These results also provide some evidence in support of Hamilton's (1985) contention that institutionalized elderly individuals are less self-actualized than elderly persons living in the community.
