We’re joined by writer, consultant, speaker, and leader of the Families in Global Transition Conference, Ruth Van Reken. Ruth shares her story as a US citizen raised for thirteen years in Nigeria and dives deep into the significant losses that often come with a cross-cultural and highly mobile lifestyle. We cover important topics including belonging, grief, identity, relationships, and parenting, all of which are becoming increasingly complex in today’s globalized world. It’s a subject close to our hearts, and one we’re excited to share with the rest of the world!
You can find out more about the ‘Third Culture Kid’ phenomenon, in Ruth’s latest book, which she co-authored with sociologists David and Michael Pollock.
