With detailed advice and helpful suggestions, Moving Your Family Overseas is the indispensable guide for relocating your family abroad. It discusses in detail the basic steps involved in an overseas move: deciding to go, preparing to leave, arriving and settling in, working through culture shock and adaptation, living in the expatriate community, making friends and returning home. Written and designed for families from anywhere in the world, particularly for those who are assigned by their employers to foreign posts, this book draws on the authors' many years of experience living abroad with their families. Their insights ease the challenges and highlight the benefits of what is often an overwhelming though rewarding transition. The advice given in Moving Your Family Overseas clearly reflects the depth of perception and simple wisdom that a good counselor brings to the advisory role. -The Bookwatch (Wisconsin)ContentsAcknowledgmentsIntroductionPart I: Deciding and Preparing to Move Overseas1 What This Move Means For Your Family2 Breaking the News3 Learning about Your New Country4 Preparing for the Move5 The Early DaysPart II: The Honeymoon is Over... or Just Beginning6 Culture Shock7 Expatriate Life8 How is Everyone Coping?Part III: Ongoing Challenges9 Social Relationships10 Parenting Overseas11 Making the Most of Home LeavePart IV: The End of Assignment12 Moving On...
