About the Course:

One of the very few books to focus on the psychological aspects of retirement, Nancy Schlossberg interviewed 100 persons at various stages of retirement.
She identifies several common paths both men and women follow, or combine, in their transitions. Like other major life transitions, there are a number of steps an individual can take to help with the journey. Practical assessment exercises as well as planning tools are presented at the end of several of the chapters.

This course is based on the book, Retire Smart Retire Happy: Finding Your True Path in Life created by Nancy K. Schlossberg, Ed.D. in 0.
