Abstract

The concept of resources, not just time and money, but forms of psychological and social capital as well, plays a central part in understanding how well parents adjust to these new demands. This chapter is structured by providing an overview of conservation of resources theory and discussing its connection to a key psychological resource, psychological capital, and how it is developed. This frames an analysis of excerpts from an interview with highly experienced parental leave coaching providers, designed to illustrate practical strategies related to identifying, developing and leveraging a range of resources that support the transition to becoming a working parent. Finally, implications for future research and practice are discussed.
