CUNHA, Natalí Andrade da; SCORSOLINI-COMIN, Fabio  and  MARIN, Raquel Cornélio. Psychological interventions in the retirement process: an integrative review of Brazilian literature. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.1, pp. 03-18. ISSN 2177-093X.

Introduction: Retirement represents a transition phase with important repercussions for the life of the individual in its different dimensions, such as career, health, family, and socialization. Pre and post-retirement psychological interventions aim to contribute to this transition, promoting well-being, adaptation and higher quality of life in facing the changes inherent to this developmental stage. Objective: This integrative review study aims to discover the panorama of the psychological interventions used in the processes of pre and post retirement in Brazil. Method: The guiding question was: what is the profile of psychological interventions of retirement in terms of characteristics, results, and recommendations? From the LILACS, SciELO, PePSIC, and PsycINFO databases, searches were carried out in the period of 2002 through 2017. Results and Discussion: Ten articles were retrieved, five being empirical and five theoretical. Most aim to describe the importance of retirement preparation programs (PPA, in Portuguese). The interventions affected the female audience more and sought to promote well-being by exploiting the losses, gains, and changes that occurred at that stage. Conclusion: It is recommended that psychologists participate in these programs, as well as the longitudinal evaluation of existing proposals, seeking constant improvement.
