EAP-Webinar: The Emotional Effects of Retirement – ENGLISH SESSION FULL

There has been a lot of interest in the webinar being presented by Lakshmi Sundaram, entitled The Emotional Effects of Retirement, and we are happy to announce that all of the spots in the English session have been filled.  We do still have some spots available in the French session which is taking place on May 19, 2020 from 2pm – 3pm EDT.

Planning to retire can be a source of both excitement and anxiety. Whatever the emotional response, retirement marks a transition to a new life stage and lifestyle in which daily routines, identity, and roles all change. This session will introduce participants to the emotional effects of retirement. Participants will get an opportunity to reflect on what their ideal retirement looks like and what they can do to make it happen.

To register for one of the remaining spots in the French session, please email In your email please include your full name and employee number.

The remaining spots in the French session will be given out on a first-come, first served basis. You will receive login information for the online session once you are registered.
