What are the different phases of change an individual goes through?  
Different resources suggest that an individual goes through a various number of stages from the time the person is introduced to the change to the time the person truly accepts and commits to it. The Army Family Team Building (AFTB) Program’s Level II class on Adapting to Change suggests there are four phases. The first one is the denial phase. In this phase, the individual may be skeptical of and/or fear the change. It is important for the person to try and define his/her fears and identify why he/she is avoiding it. In the resistance phase, the individual accepts the reality of the change but often feels angry or withdrawn. It is important for a person in this phase to look for the positive aspects of the change. Doing this helps the individual move on to the exploration phase. This is where the person starts to visualize his/her future as a result of the change taking place. The individual tends to be more open to possibilities and becomes more accepting of the change. The final phase is the commitment phase where the individual embraces the change and is ready to move on. Note that this is just one resource’s model of how change occurs. There are other change models that offer variations to the four phases described here. Refer to the resources provided for more information.
