From Culture Shock to Personal Transformation: Studying Abroad and the Search for Meaning

ByCatherine Ann Lombard

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Culture shock is a well-known term used to define the initial experiences of immersion in an unfamiliar culture. This study demonstrates that anyone undergoing its effects might wish to view the experience as an opportunity to consciously search for life meaning and personal growth. Through her psychosynthesis counseling work with international students, Catherine Ann Lombard illustrates how young people, when faced with the challenges of living abroad, can enter into a personal journey towards their authentic selves. Ultimately, by confronting themselves and growing in awareness, the students whose testimonies appear in this book release new creative energy and renew their personal and working relationships. The author also draws on her own experience of having lived in eleven countries on four continents. This book is a fascinating look into being a foreigner in a foreign land and the psychosynthesis journey towards inner wholeness.
