Working with older adults: Navigating diverse career chapters
Traditionally retirement planning has been the exclusive domain of accountants and financial advisors.
Joanne Earl has spent the last 13 years investigating retirement planning and adjustment from a psychological perspective.

Her research to date has included research projects that explore how the value a person attributes to work determines the timing of their workplace exit, whether there is a relationship between financial literacy and cognitive decline,  how time perspective can be applied to explain differences in retirement planning behaviour and online training interventions can be used to promote better retirement planning. 

Career practitioners are ideally positioned to work with older adults considering the next chapter of their lives – whether it be changes to work patterns, volunteer work or self-employment.

What are the best ways to support this diverse population?

There are some specific evidence-based reasons that careers advisers have a contribution to make in the area of retirement planning and promoting better retirement adjustment that will be discussed as part of the webinar.

Interventions with older adults will be illustrated and their success will be discussed.
