Description

MOVING ABROAD? WHAT EVERY EXPAT NEEDS TO KNOW. The challenges of living in a foreign country don't begin and end with culture shock. If you're planning a move abroad, you need to prepare yourself for the unique pressures, anxieties and personal and family problems common to all expatriates, which are often difficult to anticipate and a challenge to overcome, including: Culture shock: what is it really? Long-distance relationships with friends and family Affairs and other marriage-stressors Raising third culture kids Being single overseas Business travel booby-traps Expatriate burnout The unforeseen trials of returning home ...and much, much more Expatriate psychologist Dr. Cathy Tsang-Feign uses real-life examples and easy-to-understand explanations to fully prepare you for a move abroad, and to help those already there to help themselves live a well-rounded, satisfying life. On the principle that "awareness is half the cure," Dr. Tsang-Feign identifies and explains most of the common personal, relationship and family problems encountered by people living abroad: from the initial culture shock to the special joys and pitfalls of the expatriate experience, to the challenges of re-entering your own native country. This expanded new edition contains new information on expatriate relationships and marriage, third culture kids, and a thorough guide to finding help abroad.
