ABSTRACT

The purpose of this research is to investigate if bibliotherapy is effective for the retirees suffering from depression and enervation caused by early retirement in order to help them to accept their situations positively, lessen their illnesses and actively live new lives. The study used 15 people and executed 1:1 interview investigation among early retired employees from 45-years old to 56-years old. They were all inhabitants of the Kunsan area and visited the S University library, and used the S University library conference room for bibliotherapy. A. T. Beck's ‘Beck Depression Inventory’ (BDI) was used to collect the data for this research, and the before- and after-data analyses were performed.
