Role Transitions in Organizational Life: An Identity-Based Perspective charts the processes through which individuals move between roles during the workday and over the worklife. The book focuses on transitioning - the social psychological dynamics of role entry and role exit. Role Transitions explores not only the intersection of roles and identity, but many relatively undeveloped concepts such as normalization, turning points, disidentification, temporary identities, liminality, identity narratives, selective forgetting, transition bridges, role reversals, and time compression." ;
