New Beginnings: Jumpstarting the Rest of Your Life!

We are here to provide guidance and support for decision-making and implementation of transition strategies and decision-making about retirement, as well as other life events at this time. 

Our new program, New Beginnings: Jumpstarting the Rest of Your Life, is designed to provide support for our senior faculty.  Panelists at our September kick-off zoom workshops shared perspectives on the transition process to retirement including what they found helpful as resources, what they wished they had known before retiring, and what they are currently doing.  We also highlighted a summary of key takeaways and findings from OAA’s senior faculty and emeriti faculty surveys initiated in May 2022. More information is forthcoming on the next phase of this program.

As part of the New Beginnings program, OAA will be offering small group/individual coaching to interested senior faculty on the transition to retirement.  If you would like to learn more about this coaching program, please fill out this interest form HERE.

Couples Consultation

Personal and confidential, 1 hr. session with Dr. Litt to consider the role of one’s “significant other” in providing support at this time of decision-making as well as the potential impact of decisions about retirement on relationships. This may follow #1 or substitute for it.
