Life-Career Re-Engagement: A New Conceptual Framework for Counselling People in Retirement Transition--Part 1
Chen, Charles P.
Australian Journal of Career Development, v20 n2 p25-31 Win 2011
New ideas and perspectives are needed to form effective counselling strategies and approaches in an effort to promote and enhance the psychological well-being of individuals in retirement transition. This article suggests that counselling in this context can be considered a special helping intervention for life-career development aiming at helping clients to explore and to acquire a sense of renewed vocation in the retirement phase of their lives. In keeping with this intent, the article proposes the new conceptual framework of life-career re-engagement (LCRE) by expanding on the work of Donald Super (1957, 1990).
