Summary: 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.
