Helping People With Preretirement Planning: An Introduction. Module 43.
Walz, Garry R.; And Others
This staff development module is part of one of three groups of career guidance modules developed, field-tested, and revised by a six-state consortium coordinated by the American Institutes for Research. This module is designed to assist counselors and other helping professionals in postsecondary school and agency settings to aid adults in planning for retirement. The goal of this module is to help participants: (1) examine their attitudes toward retirement; (2) become aware of major areas of concern in preretirement planning; and (3) identify information resources. The module format consists of an overview, goals, objectives, outline, time schedule, glossary, skill development activities, and bibliography. A Coordinator's Guide is also included with detailed instructions for presenting the module in a workshop setting as well as the facilitator's roles and functions, and the criteria used in assessing the participants' achievement of module objectives.
