The Transition Framework
We are committed to using William Bridges’ Transition Framework in our work.
Thanks to the support of the Andrus Family Fund, NAMA staff have undergone trainings to use this framework to raise and address questions that we might otherwise ignore. Using this framework, we believe, will allow us and the communities we work with to face our fears and anxieties about change, be more aware of the diverse responses to such changes, and develop programs that can succeed.
Very few communities have had to undergo such drastic and rapid changes in a relatively short period of time as fishing communities. Dealing with and adapting to the various stages of change are not easy.
We believe using the Transition Framework in our effort to implement our purpose allows us to pay attention to the personal pathways various stakeholders must take to get to their respective new beginnings.
We encourage you to visit the Transition Framework website to learn more about this approach and how you can use it to further your goals in social change.
