Relocating to a foreign country for school or work offers a unique opportunity to expand your worldview and develop useful strategies in how to adapt that will serve you throughout your life. Preparing for such a move requires both attention to the logistical details (what is the climate like where I'm going? What are the typical housing accommodation?) and emotional preparation for the experience of living in a new culture. 52 Activities for Successful International Relocation is the only book of activities available that focuses on issues of international relocation. These 52 exercises - grounded in research and field-tested - were designed to help international relocation trainers and educators create programs that aid the transition of employees and students from a familiar culture to a completely new one. Sections include pre-departure preparedness exercises to reduce 'culture shock,' in-country support exercises-ideally provided with the help of a native mentor, and reentry activities to prepare individuals to readjust to life back home.Whether you're using this book in a business, education, or HR setting, the practical exercises in 52 Activities for Successful International Relocation will help your student or employee manage the practical and emotional challenges of cultural change while also helping them use their time spent abroad to grow in self-awareness, establish habits of effective communication, and build stronger relationships-skills they can take with them wherever they may go in the future.
