Career transitions

Sandy Gordon, David Lavallee

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

First paragraph: Career transitions as an area of research was generally overlooked by sport scientists until recently and also by sport administrators, coaches, athletes, and those closely associated with athletes (e. g., family) who are nevertheless keenly aware of the complex personal adjustments and socio-psychological phenomena involved. This chapter provides an overview of the theoretical approaches and frameworks that help explain the phenomenon, a review of the existing literature, and a summary of future research directions. Specifically, in the first section, theoretical perspectives that have been applied more or less appropriately to sport are summarized. The second section reviews the extant research, followed by recommendations for future investigations. The chapter concludes with a summary and set of ‘what have you learned’ questions.
