We all hope to enjoy our retirement at the end of our working lives, but for many the adjustment can be more challenging than we expected. Rather than a time of slowing down, retirement can be an opportunity to enjoy life and have some fun. It is a time for letting go of old habits, experimenting with relationships and enjoying the wisdom gathered over a life lived. With thirty years of experience as a psychotherapist, Trish Murphy understands the challenges of entering this next phase of life. Focusing on the psychological aspects of leaving the world of work, The Challenge of Retirement addresses such issues as: Wellness and happiness Mental health Managing relationships Sexuality and sex after 60 Self-care Intergenerational living Developing later-life spirituality Acceptance and having fun In addition, each chapter is filled with wisdom and advice from people in the early, middle and later stages of retirement. As we are all living longer, the messy business of life goes on as does the need to develop skills and approaches to meet new and difficult challenges. The Challenge of Retirement pulls together the knowledge Trish has learned from her years as a psychotherapist, trainer, facilitator and mediator to help you make retirement the best years of your life. The Challenge of Retirement is aimed at all those who are facing into this new phase of their lives or who have found themselves negotiating the issues that retirement brings with it.
