Countless expatriates have found themselves in crisis after moving to a new country, and many experiences of relocation have led to hardship for individuals and their loved ones.
Through the pioneering work of Martina Famos, who has counseled expatriates for over a decade in Zurich, Switzerland, Cultural Grief is an inspiring and practical guide to help expatriates understand the effects of relocation, learn what triggers the difficult emotions and how they can navigate through this transition healthily.
The book also gives expert and uplifting advice on how to consciously turn any form of life crises into a time of profound self-growth.
Excerpts from Cultural Grief, a self-help book for Expats
Grieving for your culture incorporates everything that you left behind. This is primarily your identity but also includes tangible things that you started missing. Apart from social losses, one may mourn for the food, the atmosphere in your neighborhood, speaking your language, the jokes, the interests people had in you, accessibilities to your hobbies, the climate, the light touch you had with your day-to-day life, and everything that mattered to you or that started to matter after leaving it behind.
