SCORSOLINI-COMIN, Fabio et al. Illness and retirement: report of a professional experience in psychological counseling. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2019, vol.11, n.2, pp. 83-98. ISSN 2177-093X.

Psychological counseling is a modality of care that can be part of interventions in Retirement Preparation Programs (PPAs). Between the years of 2014 and 2017 an extension linked to a psychology curriculum internship was developed in a medium-sized city in the State of Minas Gerais with the objective of offering psychological counseling to people in the process of preparing for retirement. The objective of this study is to report a professional experience based on a multiple case study focused on the process of illness in retirement. The cases presented reveal significant difficulties stemming both from illness and retirement due to disability and that could be accommodated in brief interventions. The Positive Psychology benchmark was useful in the sense of potentializing the development of resources for coping with complex situations, as well as for the re-signification of retirement as an exclusive process of losses and decreases associated with aging and terminality.
