Care for Less-Mobile TCKs: The Stayers
A common discussion in TCK circles is how to help TCKs manage the losses of continual mobility. However, for families who stay in one place for a long time, or perhaps a TCKs entire childhood, the TCK still experiences a “revolving door” of people due to the nature of TCK communities. The life of a “stayer” comes with a unique set of challenges and strengths that need recognition and care. This 90-minute workshop trains parents and caregivers in how to support TCKs who may develop deeper roots to one place overseas, while still navigating the struggles of the TCK experience.

Why should I take this course?
This workshop is aimed for you. Through this workshop, you'll be able to recognize the Key Challenge areas for TCKs and practical skills for helping them navigate those challenges to promote lifelong thriving.
Equipping you with the Key Challenges of TCKs and how to practically address them, this workshop will model how to provide parents with this foundational education to set their children up for success abroad.
While this workshop is not aimed at adult TCKs, many adult TCKs have valued this content as it names many of the issues they wrestled with in adulthood and helps them notice how their parents did support them and other ways that they needed additional support. This can be a validating, normalizing, and encouraging workshop for Adult TCKs.
