    Moving Toward Retirement

    Barbara Meyers, LICSW

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

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.
