Life Transitions: an Introduction

Life Transitions: an Introduction

We have all heard the phrase that “change is inevitable.” Well, so are transitions. Whether you are moving cities, changing jobs, or leaving the country, you will have to deal with the psychological process of leaving behind the old and accepting the new. In this program we will prepare you for the transition process by providing you with a better understanding of the 5 stages in David C. Pollock’s Transition Experience: Engagement, Leaving, Transition, Entering, Re-engagement. There is no way to avoid the difficulties of transitions, but we can simplify the process through preparation and understanding.
