Life-Career Re-Engagement: Considerations and Implications for Counselling People in Retirement Transition--Part 2
Chen, Charles P.
Australian Journal of Career Development, v20 n2 p32-41 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 is the second of two co-published articles. The first, "Life-career re-engagement: A new conceptual framework for counselling people in retirement transition", proposed the new conceptual framework of life-career re-engagement (LCRE) by expanding on the work of Donald Super (1957, 1990). In this second article, counselling considerations that are guided by and supportive of the concept of LCRE are discussed, along with implications for helping intervention. Three essential factors of retirement transition are considered, the importance of contextualising the experiences of retirees is emphasised and issues around identity, personal interests and lifelong learning are explored.
