"... into her new surroundings extremely well. She says, Leslie is now in her third year at college. She has become a counselor at her university’s International Orientation program, and is highly involved in the International Club on campus. - A Double Adjustment - Regardless of which ..."
"...Whether you are a student, a parent, an educator or a counselor, if you have not already done so, I would highly recommend that you read Pollock and Van Reken’s Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds. In fact, if it has been awhile since you first read it, I would encourage you to read it again. The first time I ..."

"...If you feel you are stuck in your grief, seek professional help from a counselor who understands TCKs. There are those times when a TCK/ATCK cannot figure out exactly what their losses are because they have been repeatedly told they should not be so negative. The grief is then so suppressed that they have a difficult time going there on their own. This is ..."

Chapter 4: Fish Out of Water
"...dealing with so much all at once that this was the “straw that broke the camel’s back” – a little thing that became more than she could bear – and she had no reserves left to deal with it. All it took was a quick visit to the guidance counselor to sort out some other concerns such as appropriate level of classes (fallout of being in an English curriculum international school and returning to the American curriculum) and getting a new locker on the second floor. ..."
"...times and you can give in to it again, but if it hangs around without letting go despite your efforts to deal with it, then think about talking with someone who can help, whether it is an upper-class student, an advisor, a friend, a coach, a professor or a counselor. You are not alone and people are happy to be helpful to students at this difficult stage. ..."
"...Grieving takes time and needs expression. It certainly helps to have someone who will listen to those expressions of grief. Call on a parent or other family member, a mentor, pastor or trusted friend. College campuses are well-equipped at providing student health counselors and other professionals who are well-versed in the grief cycle of students, international and otherwise. ..."
"...You may find yourself being pushed to the student mental health counselors by your deans, advisors or a friend. It is in the best interest of the institution you are attending to make sure you succeed. They care about how you are doing. That is exactly why many referrals to student health counselors will come from the learning support centers on ..."
"...Many counseling centers have staff that are trained specifically to work with international students. Brent from Chapter 1 found himself struggling with depression during his first semester. He finally found some help when he opened up to some of his professors, his track coach, and then to a counselor. The professors and coach took him under their wings, got him off campus for a meal now and then and gave him a lot of support. They even hooked him up with an older student who served as a mentor for him. What he appreciated the most about the ..."
"...student support. In many places the first layer consists of those who are the closest to students such as Student Advisors (SAs), Resident Advisors (RAs), or House Fellows. The next layer may be the Dean of Students, Dean of First-Year Students or Dean of International Students, and lastly the counselors themselves. All of them are trained to watch for signs of stress, depression, and suicidal symptoms and behaviors in students. ..."
"...That being said, it is worth mentioning that not all counselors are attuned to the issues of third culture kids/global nomads/international students. Some TCKs have reported their student mental health visits were actually counter-productive. As one American TCK who was raised in Europe said, “When my mental health counselor couldn’t even tell me what was wrong with me, I felt ..."
"... So I thought I must really be screwed up.” You are allowed, even expected in some situations, to “try out” different counselors to see who works best with you. Try looking at your first visit as an interview process for both of you. - Hot Topic - Thankfully depression and ..."

"...realizing it, her behaviors then became obsessive. They were the only things she could control when all else was out of control. She couldn’t control American culture and she couldn’t control who she was so she began setting rules around eating, exercising and activities. Through the help of a counselor she became more integrated in her second year and the controlling behaviors stopped. She is doing well today, has graduated from college and has plans to stay and work in the U.S. ..."
"...during his entire second semester. He tried to keep busy and not have to deal with it because the more he reflected on it, the worse it got. He experienced homesickness for the first time in the second term. He did not seek the help of a mental health counselor but relied on phone calls to his parents. Roger now admits that he made the mistake of closing himself off as to ‘what’s next?’ and wasn’t mentally prepared to come back to the U.S. which is what may have triggered his emotional responses. ..."
"...Roger did get through it. He spent the summer after his first year staying in the city and working at the college. The words of the mental health counselors who had helped him face intense re-entry shock when he was eight years old and his family was repatriated from Africa all came back to him once he had the relaxed summer months to mentally spend time with it. He now understands how his international experiences have made him ..."
"...▪ This is the time students feel ambivalent about being here and begin making appointments with their deans and advisors to talk about transferring or leaving. They may call home to tell their parents or high school guidance counselors they want to come home. They doubt themselves, their abilities, and their choice of college. They feel they don’t belong there. (Chapter 9 gets into some of the reasons for this and ways to avoid it.) ..."

"...sometimes even whole sentences. On the other hand, intuitors may get drawn into associative thinking that takes them away from the here-and-now of the lecture, causing them to ignore details that are later needed to pass a test. There are probably note-taking resources available on campus or from academic counselors that can help you improve how you take notes. Mind mapping is a good method of note taking for either preference because it allows both for big picture notes and the smallest details. A mind map is a diagram used for linking words and ideas to a central ..."

"...expectations in them. They are then responsible for how they decide to use the advice and trust we have given them. This counsel will be reinforced in many different voices since most colleges and universities today take a proactive approach to heading off disaster among their first-year students. Deans, counselors and students themselves will talk to freshmen about real-life experiences, examples, and unfortunate results of not exercising personal restraint or giving in to social pressures that have taken place on their very own campus. ..."
