Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
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.

As an expatriate of 28 years in Hong Kong and Malaysia I can identify closely with many of the pitfalls… especially now that I have returned to Australia where I had reverse culture shock. As I read through I kept on picturing particular people I have known in Asia and how they really do encounter divorce, homesickness, loneliness, profligate spending, having affairs and wallowing in the luxury lifestyle of an expat -- a lifestyle that won’t be available when they return home. This book, well-written and easy to read will make all the difference to people moving to a new country and to those who are returning home after many years abroad.
There is an even greater depth to the book because many of the issues are life issues and apply to anyone, anywhere. Though for the about-to-be or entrenched expat, this book provides the right mix of life tales and professional insights to make it an essential read.
