Descripción del producto

The challenges of living and working in a foreign country don't begin and end with culture shock.

Whether you're doing international business or teaching in foreign places, if you're moving to another part of the world, 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 reverse culture shock
  • ...and much, much more
International psychologist Dr. Cathy Tsang-Feign uses real-life examples and easy-to-understand explanations to fully prepare you for a move overseas, and to help those already in a foreign land 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.

Keep your life, family and career intact while Living Abroad hits all the bases in identifying the common snares of moving to a new country. This is not a ‘how-to- book so much as a way to pinpoint issues as they arise and have strategies to deal with the situation. The author is clear that ‘awareness is half the cure’.

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.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Managing your expectations as an ex-pat 10 de noviembre de 2013
Por Stephanie C. Bane - Publicado en

This book is an excellent guide to the expat experience. Cathy Tsang-Feign clearly charts the emotions you can expect to feel at each stage of your adaptation to a new country, and provides suggestions for managing those emotions successfully. She also charts the experience in reverse, providing guidance for the return, which is unexpectedly difficult for many. I wish I'd had this book when I returned from my service in the Peace Corps. Tsang-Feign puts a name to the issues I faced at the time, specifically identity inflation, and identity deflation. These issues are particularly acute for a young American who is a near-celebrity in a small African village, and returns home to have trouble finding even a low-wage job. I will definitely recommend this book to recently returned volunteers.

Cathy, a friend and neighbor, gave me the first edition of her book when I was departing Hong Kong for Taiwan. Having read the first and second editions now, I can strongly recommend it for anyone who is going abroad to work. Cathy provides a very succinct synopsis of the many risks faced by expatriates at various stages of their careers. The book also offers solutions for this quite special group of people who have left their native land and cut the tether with their accustomed support groups. It's a thought-stimulating read.
