The Stress of Change - Clarifying the Terminology
|Written by Administrator|
CHANGE is an event. It happens when something ends, begins, or starts to happen differently.
TRANSITION is a process of adjusting to the change. It is experienced by people and results in stress. It is a period of time when we move from the "old" to the "new".
"It's not so much that we're afraid of change or so in love with the old ways, but it's that place in between that we fear ... it's like being between trapezes. It's Linus when his blanket is in the dryer. There's nothing to hold on to."
- M. Fergus
