Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Expecting that home will be the way it was when you left? Are you instead shocked to discover that both you and home have changed? The Art of Coming Home offers the solid advice you need to reduce the stress of the transition experience.Veteran trainer, consultant and adventurer Craig Storti takes you step by step through the process of returning home after spending time abroad. He defines the four stages of reentry-leave taking, the honeymoon, reverse culture shock and readjustment-and what to expect at each phase, concluding with practical suggestions for successful repatriation. Understanding that reentry isn't just hard on the individual, Storti also examines reentry issues for spouses, teenagers, and young children. Storti offers both individuals and their children advice for dealing with reentry before and after departure from the overseas posting. Coming back home from spending time abroad can be almost as exciting as being away, and just as stressful. Prepare yourself for what's ahead with Craig Storti's The Art of Coming Home. A valuable resource for expatriates returning home, the families returning with them, their employers, and family and friends who want to understand and support their transition.-Donna Stringer, President, Executive Diversity ServicesContentsAcknowledgmentsIntroduction1 Coming Home2 The Stages of Reentry3 The Return of the Employee4 The Return of Spouses and Children5 Special PopulationsEpilogueUseful ResourcesBibliographyIndex
