From the Back Cover:

Incorporating the latest research and well-established theories concerning how individuals adapt to retirement, The Psychology of Retirement is the first text of its kind to draw on proven psychological coping strategies. These strategies are described in the context of retirement, which is often an eagerly awaited respite from the working life, but which is too often a surprisingly stressful life event for which individuals are ill-prepared

The self-help approach draws extensively on case studies of the personal experiences of retired individuals and the author’s professional understanding, grounded in his work as a Clinical Psychologist with adults in Britain’s National Health Service over the past 30 years.

The book is a primer on coping with retirement by highlighting core issues and challenges, identifying positives, suggesting options, and encouraging an optimistic and constructive approach to this vital transition, complementing the traditional emphasis on the physical as well as the financial aspects of retirement. The result is a guide allowing readers to gain a better understanding of the psychological realities of retirement, and which clearly illuminates the most effective strategies for coping with the transition.

About the Author:

Derek Milne retired as the Director of the Newcastle University Doctorate in Clinical Psychology training programme in 2012. In addition to practicing as a clinical psychologist within the National Health Service (including work with older adults) and teaching within Higher Education, he has occupied the related roles of coach, sport and exercise psychologist, trainer, researcher, mentor and organizational consultant. He is the author of Wiley’s Evidence Based Clinical Supervision (2009).
