Turning TCK Hardships into Resilience-Building Experiences

Research shows that TCKs are at a higher risk for Adverse Childhood Experiences than monocultural children. Without intentional care, these developmental traumas can have lasting physical, mental, emotional, and social repercussions.

However, with intentional care TCKs can come out of their traumatic experiences strong, prepared, and resilient. We will provide you with suggestions for implementing this intentional care into your TCK’s lives to directly counteract the effects of those Adverse Childhood Experiences.

This 3-hour workshop is for parents, caregivers, organizations, and anyone else who has an impactful role in a TCK’s life.

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.
