Trajectories and Turning Points—
“A trajectory is the stable component of a direction toward a life destination and is
characterized by a given probability of occurrence” (i.e. “a tendency to persistence in
life-course patterns.” – Wheaton & Gotlib (1997)
Turning Point: “A turning point is a change in direction in the life course, with respect
to a previously established trajectory, that has the long-term impact of altering the
probability of life destinations”
