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 edition contains new information on expatriate relationships and marriage, third culture kids, and a thorough guide to finding help abroad.
