Adaptation to Retirement: Role Changes and Psychological Resources.
Carter, Mary Anne Taylor; Cook, Kelli
Career Development Quarterly, v44 n1 p67-82 Sep 1995
The influence of social and work roles is incorporated into a model of retirement adjustment, along with two psychological moderators that may aid in retirement transition. These psychological resources, locus of control and self-efficacy, are those behavioral predispositions that lead one to engage in proactive strategies for mastering role changes inherent in retirement transition.
