The material in this entire Transitions section of YouthSuccessNYC is based on the work of William Bridges, who came up with the Transitions Framework to guide people and organizations through periods of change. The three steps in any transition are (1) Endings; (2) Neutral Zone; and (3) New Beginnings. This website breaks down those three stages and illustrates how they apply to change among a variety of individuals, including foster youth, as well as to larger social change. The website gives examples of organizations who've used the Transitions Framework, as well as tools for teaching and assessing it.
