Living abroad offers enriching experiences of growth, broadened perspective, enhanced cultural understanding. Yet its transition-rich, change-driven, cross-cultural nature can place considerable demands, leaving us stressed, disconnected, our identity in flux.

Janssen guides those facing the challenges of cross-cultural living to dig under the initial rocky surfaces of overseas life to discover - and use - the rich gold of their own experience.
