Abstract [en]

In this introductory presentation to the symposium the author is going to apply building metaphors borrowed from Forscher’s “Chaos in the brickyard” (1963) to briefly summarize a current status of the career topic in sport psychology and then to consider several emerging research/applied trends to furtherpositioning them in the existing system of athlete career knowledge. Special attention will be paid to the cultural praxis of athletes’ careers paradigm (Stambulova & Ryba, 2013; 2014) and it’s a potential to connect different “floors” and “blocks” in theexisting “edifice” of career knowledge in sport psychology. The new research trends will be considered as “bricks” contributing to building new knowledge about athletes’ normative, non-normative, and quasi-normative transitions. In terms of normative transitions, the recent studies on the junior-to-senior transition trajectories/pathways (e.g., Franck & Stambulova, 2014), phases in junior-to-senior (Lundell Olsson & Pehrson, 2013) and athletic retirement (Reints, 2011) transitions as well dual career transitions (e.g., Stambulova, Engström, Franck, Linnér, & Lindahl, 2014) will be considered. Among new non-normative transition research an injury will be introduced as a career transition process with a sequence of phases and also with short-term and long-term career impacts (Ivarsson, Stambulova & Johnson, 2015). Among quasi-normative transitions, cultural transitions (e.g., Agergaard & Ryba, 2014; Ryba, Stambulova, Ronkainen, Bundgaard, & Selänne, 2014) and transitions to elite residential training centers (e.g., Poczwardowski, Diehl, O’Neil, Cote, & Haberl, 2013) will be considered, and also Olympic Games or other important competitions will be articulated as quasi-normative career transitions (e.g., Schinke, Stambulova, Trepanier, & Oghene, 2014; Wylleman, Reints, & Van Aken, 2012). In conclusion, new directions in applied work with transitional athletes (e.g., dual career support services, psychological support in the injury transition) that are (or might be) encouraged by the new research trends will be outlined. © 2015 University of Bern, Institut of Sport Science
