Moving Toward Retirements



Barbara Meyers, LICSW


Two (2) Category A Clinical CEUs are pending approval from NASW NH.

Retirement is a life stage event complete with gains and losses. When a clinician retires, clients are impacted and there are multiple opportunities to explore the gains and losses for them as well. Thus hour and one-half workshop is designed to help private practice clinicians anticipating retirement to explore the impact of retirement both for them selves and their clients. Throughout the emphasis will be on self-care and the ethical dimensions to saying “goodbye.” There will be time for both discussion and didactic information regarding the process.

Topics will include:

a. Self-care as one negotiates closing a practice;

b. Preparation for post-retirement life;

c. The ethical dimensions of terminating with clients; and

d. Tools and techniques for good endings in preparation for new beginnings.

Learning Objectives

At the close of this workshop, participants will be able to:

a. List ways for self-care in preparation for the loss of one’s professional life;

b. Understand the risks to identity post-retirement and further self-care;

c. State the ethical dimensions of terminating with clients;

d. List tools and techniques for good endings;
