About the Webinar

Professionals who work with families in global transition have the opportunity to delve into the details of people’s lives, to support their transitions and growth. In this webinar, we will explore several psychological/social challenges people face when moving to a new culture: family dynamics, social support, identity loss and early experience with difference. Using research findings from The Interchange Institute, we will discuss how these ideas can become part of a coaching and/or cultural training conversation.
