The focus will be on a study of how men age 55 or older, who have been highly work-identified, are able to find a new sense of community, discover meaning beyond work, and engage in activities that give them a renewed sense of purpose in retirement. Also discussed will be the complexity of the transition and its psychological impact.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Increased understanding of career/life transitions of older men
  • Implications for programs to support successful transitions for this group
  • Better understanding of issues related to high work identification
