FRANCA, Lucia Helena de Freitas Pinho; AMORIM, Silvia Miranda; SOUZA, Andreia Pereira de  and  SCHUABB, Thais Cravo. Guided Autobiography to assess life, career and plan for retirement. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2017, vol.18, n.2, pp. 249-258. ISSN 1679-3390.

The aging population process requires urgency in reviewing organizational guidelines and practices, such as the Retirement Preparation Programs known as PPA. A recent research regarding PPA in Brazil concluded that priority should be given to sustainability, methodological consistency and evaluations to confirm the effectiveness of these programs. The purpose of this study was to present and discuss the applicability of the Guided Autobiography (GAB) as an innovative method to evaluate life, career and resources for retirement. The text discusses the relevance of the PPA, used methods, GAB principles and procedures, suggesting a basic guide for conducting life, career and retirement resource assessment. In conclusion, the GAB seems a suitable tool for planning and decision making in retirement.
