The role of the expat spouse is being increasingly recognised as integral to the success of any expat experience. After all, the inability of the family to adjust is the second most cited reason for international assignment failure.

 

The term ‘trailing spouse’ carries many negative connotations and none that reflect the strength, knowledge, skills and experiences of the people who agree to accompany their spouse and family to new cities and countries and start over, often again, and again.

 

This seminar is an opportunity to learn how to utilise your expat experience as an opportunity to develop your strength and resilience so as to make the most of the adventure. 

 

You will learn about:

·      Common challenges

·      Stages of emotional adjustment

·      How to keep your personal resources in balance

·      How to draw on your past experiences and positive coping skills to explore and create new career opportunities.
