Planning and Preparation for the New Life.
This paper describes a program designed to help preretirees and retirees prepare for retirement. The program explores the needs, stereotypes, dilemmas, challenges, and satisfactions of retirement. An exercise to explore personal values is described in which previous program participants rank ordered 10 top-priority concerns of income, health, housing, emotional adjustment, consumerism, leisure, employment, legal issues, transportation, and education. An overview of each area is provided to develop an awareness of the issues related to retirement planning. The Retirement Fantasy Exercise presents a technique in which participants fantasize about being 70 years old in order to reduce their anxiety about aging. A reference list of pamphlets relevant to aging is appended. (NRB)
