This monograph focuses on preretirement education and counseling programs as short-term events presented for the benefit of mature adults approaching retirement. The first section examines preretirement education from a historical perspective and includes a review of current programs. Forces affecting the future direction of preretirement education are identified and discussed, as are basic adult counseling needs. The second section addresses the practical aspects of planning or selecting a preretirement education program for employees, group members, or clientele. Detailed checklists are provided for the program planner and various program agendas are presented as examples of different program formats, content areas, and delivery modes. (Author/NRB)
