The Retirement Process.
Carp, Frances M., Ed.
A conference held to present and discuss new research findings and to consider strategy and tactics for stimulating systematic research on retirement as a normal phase of development is reported. The nine papers, seven of which are followed by discussion reports, presented at the conference are reproduced in this book. The papers and their authors are: "Background and Statement of Purpose" by Frances M. Carp; "Patterns of Psychological Health and Psychiatric Illness in Retirement" by Robert N. Butler; "Implications for Retirement of Recent Studies on Age and Working Capability" by R. Meredith Belbin; "Patterns of Retirement in San Francisco" by Donald L. Spence; "Frequency and Nature of Health Problems of Retired Persons; "Differential Patterns of Retirement by Social Class and Personal Characteristics" by Abram J. Jaffee; "Social and Psychological Factors in Adjustment in a Retirement Village" by Maurice B. Hamovitch; "The Allocation of Leisure to Retirement" by Juanity M. Kreps; and "Summary and Prospect" by Frances M. Carp, which describes several research topics that were judged to merit special attention. The conference concludes that the most pressing need is for systematic statements of the retirement process which will guide research toward the building of theory systems. (DB)
