Life After Work : A Psychological Guide to a Healthy Retirement Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Retirement is a comma in our lives, not a full stop.

Life After Work looks at the psychological, emotional and wellbeing issues that surround this complex and important transition in life.

This book suggests that retirement is a life stage over which we may have greater control than previously thought; it no longer has to be the case that retirement is a terminal point, a time where you became sedentary and inactive. Retirement is on one level a private, individual matter that affects one's sense of self and purpose, physical and mental processes, as well as financial security or provision.

On another level, retirement has an impact on relationships with loved ones, family and friends, as well as colleagues.

It can strengthen or disrupt bonds, leading to new bonds being formed or to withdrawal.

This book is written by successful authors and psychologists Robert Bor, Carina Eriksen and Lizzie Quarterman, each with many years' experience of helping people cope with life stage changes and prepare for retirement.

It contains illustrative case studies throughout, from which valuable lessons can be learned, and draws on the very latest psychological research and techniques to provide a blueprint for planning and living a wonderful retirement or life post-work. Planning for your future is crucial in enabling you to maximise the opportunities available.

Following the book's blueprint will help you prepare for this phase in your life, and the sooner you start the better.

Life After Work will be of great interest to readers of all ages seeking guidance on retirement and will also appeal to psychologists of life stage changes.
