  2. 2. Transition Psychology• Transition psychology originated from work on bereavement, family crisis and depression by Parkes, Hill, Holmes and Rahe, Kubler Ross, Brown, and others• Models of transition endeavour to describe how individuals respond to change, either in their own lives or environment. There are many types of change and varying degrees of impact. Not all changes cause transitions• Most transitions are associated with significant life events - changes to the individual’s role or environment that require radical restructuring of the individual’s view of themselves and their world. The process takes longer than most people expect - typically 6-12 months, sometimes longer• Transitions were studied for trauma and loss. But research and practice indicate that positive life events e.g. marriage, birth of a child or new job have as much potential for psychological disruption as negative events. Transitions involve serious hazards and windows of opportunity for growth (Williams 2008)
  3. 3. TransitionMost transition theorist agree on three points:(a) Transitions involve grieving for the loss of the old and readjusting to the new(b) Transitions often work the best when they are approached intentionally(c) Transitions often work best when there is an understanding of the considerable personal challenges that they represent and when there are supports in place to help the individual cope with and overcome these challenges (Turner, 2007)
