Transitions imply change which is often accompanied by periods of stress or some sense of suffering. With the regular transitions children face throughout their development, the accompanying discomfort can, at times, not be avoided. Finding purpose in the experience is one way of returning to a functioning state (Louw, 2007). A framework that explores the search for meaning in life offers one lens to look through when trying to make sense of transitional tasks. Logotherapy will first be contextualized within Child and Youth Care by highlighting complementary areas, after which transitions will be explored as opportunities to find meaning.
