Transition is the internal emotional process a person goes through when he/she is confronted with an external change. To learn more about transitions and how to deal with them, check out Understanding Transitions. Top^

What areas of non-profit work is the Transition Framework useful for?
We believe a constant and consistent application of the Transition Framework is useful in a whole host of non-profit areas, from environmental work to juvenile delinquency. However, in the Applying Transitions section of this website, we have listed selected areas which have documented how they applied the Transition Framework and how successful they were. Top^

How do I find out more about the Transition Framework?
If you couldn't find the answers to your questions about the Transition Framework on our website, you can also check out William Bridges' website, which includes sample chapters from his books on transitions and various articles he has written on transitions in organizations.

Is there any hard data to support that the Transition Framework makes a difference in sustaining social change?
There is a small but growing set of data to show the effectiveness of the Transition Framework in bringing about sustainable social change. If you want to learn more about this information, you can look at the Assessing Transitions section of this website. Top^

I've been having difficulties dealing with transitions in my program. Help!
Relax. You're not the first person to run into difficulties when dealing with transitions and change. We've compiled a list of various challenges other non-profit organizations have faced when confronting change, and the steps they took to resolve their problems. Go through the challenge list and you might find that someone else has already come up with a solution for your problem. Top^
