Transitions: Making Sense of Life's Changes

Title Transitions: Making Sense of Life's Changes
Author William Bridges
Call Number HQ799.97.U5 B74 1980
Location 2nd Floor Social Sciences
Rating Somewhat Recommended
Book Review This was required reading for an organizational leadership class, so I only somewhat recommend this title. William Bridges's Transitions posits that a person who is the recipient of change experiences an ending before entering a state of confusion and/or chaos, before finally experiencing a new beginning. This model is somewhat similar to Kubler-Ross's five-stages of grief, and to Duck's Five-Stage Change Curve, in that Bridges's model assesses people's emotional responses to change. This is a fairly quick read, and informative in many ways, particularly in how people perceive change as they enter and exit different stages in their lives.
