"Being an international, an expat is not a science - but science can go a long way in understanding how to succeed at, enjoy and benefit from international living. Catherine takes her own personal experience, those of countless internationals as well as her profession (psychology) to explore the many dimensions of international living. The result: a book full of understanding and countless exercises designed to get internationals on the road to becoming happy and healthy." Deborah Valentine, executive director Access, life long international. *** " Transler has produced an essential guide to the realities we face when moving abroad, whether permanently or temporarily. Dealing clearly with the psychology of relocation, readers are taken step by step through the issues they may face... This book should be on the reading list of everyone planning their move to a new country." Emmy Coffey Mccarthy, Expat of the Year 2012, Director Amsterdam Mamas. *** "A must... More > read... Written by a psychologist it really provides an insight into the mental challenges people face without their family and friends around for support and the feelings that they may be going through. It provides in-depth knowledge as to how the feelings come about so they can be better understood and managed." Brian Friedman, Director The Forum for Expatriate Management, www.totallyexpat.com *** "The last decade has seen a slow but steady upsurge in books examining the challenges often faced by those living cross-culturally... Catherine Transler's Turning International contributes considerably to this conversation and takes us further with an important, in-depth look at the psychological underpinnings of many of the emotions and behaviors associated with the expatriate experience. Regardless of how you see yourself - expat, global nomad, serial wanderer, world citizen, cross-cultural, international – Turning International is one book that certainly belongs on your bookshelf. " Linda A. Janssen, writer, www.adventuresinexpatland.com *** "I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in equipping themselves with knowledge and actionable guidance to overcome obstacles, deal with ongoing change and build resilience to not only survive but thrive in their life abroad.
