As we move through the transitions in our lives there are various steps in the process. David Pollock, who is recognized as a leading authority on third culture kids and transitions, has listed these five stages in the process: involvement stage, leaving stage, transitions stage, entering stage, and reinvolvement stage. As you and your family move through these various stages you will be able to recognize them and know how to better assist your child/children. We believe that this session will help you and your child/children with the sometimes challenging transition stage.
Some of the basic objectives and concepts in the following lessons have been drawn from ideas presented in New Kid in School: Using Literature to Help Children in Transition by Debra Rader and Linda Harris Sittig.
