Looking for a comprehensive one-stop resource on transitions across the life course? Then look no further. This concise reference book unpacks the far-reaching topic of transitions, delivered in an accessible A-Z format that allows the reader quick and easy access to information relevant to whichever stage in the life course they are concerned with. Providing an examination of each multidimensional transition, the book also brings a strong focus to the role of practitioners in preparing individuals for, and supporting them through, the transition process - whether it be a normative life transition, such as starting school, or something unexpected and distressing, like the sudden death of a loved one. With explicit 'Implications for Practice' points, a wealth of guidance on further reading and comprehensive cross-referencing throughout, the book is an essential resource for students and practitioners exploring the subject area from a vast array of disciplines - from social work and nursing to teaching, counselling and beyond.
