Workshop: Internationally Living Children
On the 11th of March, Ute Limacher-Riebold, will hold a workshop about Internationally Living Children, also known as Third Culture Kids.
Internationally living children have the unique opportunity to immerse into different cultures, learn several languages, and appreciate diversity.
- What kind of impact will this kind of mobile childhood have on their lives?
- Will they develop a sense of identity and belonging?
- Will they be resilient?
In this workshop we’ll look at strategies that help internationally living children develop strength to cope more effectively with challenging situations.
You will learn:
- to recognise timely when your TCK needs your support
- a 7 steps approach to increase your and your family’s resilience
This workshop is for everyone who would like to know how to support internationally living children (0-20yo) and help them make the best out of their lives abroad.
Date: Wednesday, 11 March 2015
