Roundtable Discussion on Transition to Retirement for Older Adults
30-Minute Roundtable Session, Advanced
Jonathan Lent         
In 2010 the U.S. began an 18-year period where 77 million people (the age group commonly referred to as the “baby boomers”) will reach the age where they may choose to leave the workforce. Counselors will be called on to help individuals navigate the transition from full-time work to either phased or full retirement. This roundtable will present one model for assisting clients and will provide the opportunity for attendees to share ideas and discuss salient strategies to this life transition.
