Emotional Resilience for the Expat Child provides a step-by-step guide that is designed to increase a child's emotional vocabulary and emotional intelligence. Doing this will enable your child to achieve his or her fullest potential. The bond between an adult and child is key to the psychological health of the child. For the expatriate child, this bond is more vital than ever. This workbook has been created for you to use together and will provide the perfect place to connect for you and your family. With easily understood and practical steps any parent can apply, you can start to create and enjoy your family's 'emotion stories'. This book will help you to develop the mutually respectful and loving relationships with your kids that you've always wanted. Working on these 'emotion stories', all children can develop a strong sense of personal narrative; they will find their own 'voice' and in so doing will grow into confident, happy teenagers. When a child feels happy and confident, he will be more likely to construct and communicate his emotions. The richer his vocabulary is in emotions, the more competent and powerful he will be in reflecting on his behavior and how his actions and interactions are intertwined. Well-written in an engaging, conversational tone, this book is sensible, straightforward and based on the experiences of expat families. It will give your child what he or she needs to understand and express today in order to grow into a caring, emotional intelligent adult tomorrow.

It is easy to connect with this book as it is written in a style that is very comfortable to read. It is as if you were having a conversation at the table over a cup of coffee. Not only is this book a benefit for families, I can see it as a useful guide for anyone working with children overseas such as teachers. This would help in helping children cope with being aboard and having to deal with a new, strange and different culture.
I highly recommend this book to any family considering moving aboard with children or for anyone dealing with children who have already moved aboard. This book is well written, very concise and very useful that can go a long way in reducing stress with the move. It is indeed a very thorough and comprehensive guide!
Julia Simens in Emotional Resilience and the Expat Child has done a good job in emphasizing the importance of considering both attachment styles as well as emotional resilience in this process. Being close to children and being attentive to their struggles to adapt to this new situation is essential to transform a stressful situation into personal and emotional growth. Thanks Julia Simens for explaining to parents and giving practical, the step by step guidance on how we can do that.
