The Challenge of Change: The Transition Model and Its Applications
Schlossberg, Nancy K.
Journal of Employment Counseling, v48 n4 p159-162 Dec 2011
Work transitions are particularly complex because individuals will change jobs and careers many times, and the structure of work itself is always changing. It is critical that individuals understand change, how it affects their clients, and how they can apply this knowledge to their lives and their clients' lives. In this article, the author discusses The Transition Model including (a) understanding transitions; (b) coping with transitions; and (c) applying the model to work life transitions. A brief description of the 4 Ss (situation, self, supports, strategies) System for coping with transitions is provided, with examples of each of the categories.
