Abstract: First paragraph: Career transitions as an area of research was generally overlooked by sport scientists in Australia until recently. Career retirement issues also received haphazard attention 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 is an attempt to provide an overview of the theoretical approaches and frameworks that help explain the phenomenon, a review of the existing literature and intervention strategies, and a summary of future directions for both research and career assistance programs.
