Product description

Product Description

The challenges of living and working in a foreign country don't begin and end with culture shock.

Whether you're doing international business or teaching in foreign places, if you're moving to another part of the world, 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 reverse culture shock
  • ...and much, much more
International psychologist Dr. Cathy Tsang-Feign uses real-life examples and easy-to-understand explanations to fully prepare you for a move overseas, and to help those already in a foreign land 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.
