4. Book on Flourishing Expat Kids

We are currently working together with a dear colleague (Angela Schreiner) on a book about expat kids. What we have found are novel and encouraging answers for parents, teachers, counselors etc.: How can expat kids face the chances and challenges in a way that they are able to flourish abroad?

How can families, schools and companies support expat kids feeling good and help them to learn more about their “superpowers”. Positive Psychology and numerous interviews that were conducted by the authors with expat kids, expat parents, international schools and experts helped in finding to figure out what expat kids need to “flourish” (Seligman, 2001),
The book includes theoretical and empirical evidence that wellbeing can be learnt. In addition, it comprises a tool-box for daily (school) life which can significantly help to improve the life of expat kids.

The book will be published in German with Springer and is upcoming in Spring 2024.

5. Book on Expatriate Coaching

After Judith became a certified coach herself (Raleigh Coaching Academy / USA), she published together with a dear colleague of her, Susan Hoentzsch (karrierpfade), a book about the efficiency of (intercultural) coaching in the context of expatriation.

Several authors answer with respect to different main subjects the question what kind of coaching really support before, during and after an expatriation.
