Encouraging Resilience in the Foreign Service Child (MQ500)

This evening seminar is a valued added resource for all parents in the foreign affairs community. Participants will hear from both parents of children who were raised overseas and the Third Culture Kids themselves. Discussions will address the characteristics of an internationally mobile childhood; influences on cultural identity; characteristics of families living overseas; and strategies for raising resilient children.

Participant Feedback:

"It was nice to hear my kids probably won't grow up to be miserable and depressed and regretful on everything I have done."

"I left feeling reassured that the kids will be fine (thanks to the panel) and I have a more concrete view of the challenges (pros and cons list) and perhaps what they need to handle the challenges (the ice breaker). Some toolkit tips from the panel were especially useful."
