Abstract [en]

Cultural transition research and practice are currently positioned on the border between cultural sport psychology and athlete career scholarship taking insights from both fields. The aim of this presentation is to elaborate on how the athletic career transition model (Stambulova, 2003), the cultural transition model (Ryba, Stambulova, & Ronkainen, 2016), and principles of career assistance (e.g., Stambulova, 2012) and context-driven practice (e.g., Stambulova & Schinke, 2017) might complement each other in guiding practitioners to support athletes in cultural transitions. The athletic career transition model emphasizes transition demands, resources, barriers, and coping strategies as major components of any transition process. The cultural transition model is more specific and provides the three-phase transition temporal structure (pre-transition, acute cultural adaptation, and sociocultural adaptation), developmental tasks (or demands) for each phase and psychological mechanisms (e.g., meaning reconstruction) underlying the transition process and overlapping with coping strategies. Application of these models might help consultants to understand what happens to athletes during the transition process and what kinds of support they need at its various phases. Principles of career assistance (e.g., the holistic developmental and ecological approaches, the individual and empowerment approaches) complemented by postulates of context-driven practice (e.g., recognizing that both clients and consultants are cultural beings, situating the clients within their relevant contexts, consultants’ immersing in the clients’ contexts, stimulating the client’s and the consultant’s reflections) might help practitioners to navigate  how they can facilitate athletes’ meaningful transition experiences and “achieving optimal functioning in the novel environment” (Ryba, Schinke, Stambulova, & Elbe, 2017).
