It is suggested that the sabbatical year in academic life falls within the context of the growing literature on transitional states in middle years. The period for study and reflection in mid-life is similar to the moratorium of adolescence, allowing for change and growth. Three cases are presented to show how treatment at this period led to resolution of the emotional problems engendered in the transitional period.
