-What characterizes transformative learning is the initial inability to fit the new material into the existing frames of schemata, what results in a need to change them. For example, a change of attitude to homeless people after realizing how hard their life is. These-like experiences are also called //​perspective transformations//​. They often come due to life experiences,​ often related to strong emotional responses. These may be personal crises like divorce, death of a friend or a family member, wars, natural or man-caused disasters, health crises, etc, but do not have to be so radical.(([[http://​meds.queensu.ca/ohse/​assets/​new_article_tl.pdf|Taylor,​ Edward W.
