Factors Affecting Third Culture Kids' (TCKs) Transition
Morales, Antonio
Journal of International Education Research, v11 n1 p51-56 2015
(TCKs) transition becomes challenging for both the student and the school. The programs implemented, or lack thereof, are imperative to the successful transition of TCKs into their new, diverse, multicultural environment. Research has been written on the positive effects and challenges faced by TCKs' transient lifestyle. Although international mobility can expose students to unique experiences, it can also prove to be stressful for children, especially during their formative years. This paper addresses two factors affecting TCKs' transition--programs and counselor--and concludes with a model of a transition support program that may assist international schools in addressing the challenges accompanied by TCKs' transition into international schools.
