The only thing you can be sure you can move around the world is your child's ability to increase his or her interpersonal skills. In today's global world, each of us is searching for effective tools that can help our children to thrive. Emotional Resilience for the Expat Child provides a step-by-step guide that is designed to increase a child's emotional vocabulary and emotional intelligence. Doing this will enable your child to achieve his or her fullest potential. The bond between an adult and child is key to the psychological health of the child. For the expatriate child, this bond is more vital than ever. This workbook has been created for you to use together and will provide the perfect place to connect for you and your family. With easily understood and practical steps any parent can apply, you can start to create and enjoy your family's 'emotion stories'. This book will help you to develop the mutually respectful and loving relationships with your kids that you've always wanted. Working on these 'emotion stories', all children can develop a strong sense of personal narrative; they will find their own 'voice' and in so doing will grow into confident, happy teenagers.When a child feels happy and confident, he will be more likely to construct and communicate his emotions. The richer his vocabulary is in emotions, the more competent and powerful he will be in reflecting on his behavior and how his actions and interactions are intertwined. Well-written in an engaging, conversational tone, this book is sensible, straightforward and based on the experiences of expat families. It will give your child what he or she needs to understand and express today in order to grow into a caring, emotional intelligent adult tomorrow.

"Like any journey, moving induces excitement and fear. Moving without an emotional map, however, induces terror. Where am I going? What am I feeling? What is happening? Am I normal? With efficient strokes of her pen, Valerie Besanceney sweeps these troubling questions aside for any child fortunate enough to receive this book. My Moving Booklet traces the contours of every move's landscape, freeing the young explorer to color in the mountains and valleys he or she encounters. Each turn of the page quietly reinforces this book's most important message to children: someone knows where you are. Moving isn't easy. Being reassured you're still on the map makes it easier. And because children clutch tightly to the people and things that make them feel safe, My Moving Booklet will earn its title in small sets of hands everywhere." Douglas W. Ota, Author, Safe Passage: What Mobility Does to People and What International Schools Should Do About It "Valerie Besanceney has come up with a perfect addition to any classroom or family that deals with the comings and goings of our citizens of the world. Not only will the child enjoy the beautiful emotions icons but they will be easily able to label how certain parts of this move is making them feel. If a child can easily share their honest emotions they will more readily be able to make the most out of changes whether it is across town or across the world. It is exciting to see that caring adults now have a tool that can really benefit a child in transition. When a child is going through a move, he or she might be going through many diff erent emotions. As Besanceney says, 'Sometimes it is easier to identify with illustrations and words than to come up with your own words.' This is why My Moving Booklet is perfect for your young child." Julia Simens, Author, Emotional Resilience and the Expat Child: practical storytelling techniques that will strengthen the global family "Helping a child prepare for a successful transition has just become much easier! Valerie Besanceney's booklet is a great tool for schools wanting to collaborate effectively with every child and his or her parents to help ease them on their life journey. Straightforward, and well structured, it also provides lots of room for the creativity of the individuals involved and keeps the child at the centre. Thank you!" Jennifer Armstrong, Principal of Primary, La Chataigneraie Campus, The International School of Geneva

Emma is only ten years old, but has already moved twice. Now, her parents are telling her the family is moving again. She's furious, sad, nervous, and a little excited, all at the same time. Unsure of how to tackle these conflicting emotions, she turns to B, her faithful teddy bear. While trying to come to terms with the challenges of another move, what Emma really wants is just to 'be at home'. As the journeys of Emma and B unfold, home changes once again, but home also begins to take on a new meaning that Emma can take with her wherever she goes. "In this delightful book you have the solution for how to translate what we, as adults, know about the TCK experience, into language and concepts that children who grow up globally can relate to. This book offers clear strategies for parents, educators, others who work with TCKs, and the TCKs themselves, on practical ways to translate theory into practices to help children navigate the chronic cycles of separation inherent in a TCK's childhood." Ruth E. Van Reken, Co-author, Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds, Co-founder, Families in Global Transition, www.FIGT.org "Beautifully written, B at Home: Emma Moves Again is a must for parents, teachers and organizations that support global nomads. Adults who work with families in global transition will find it added to their 'go to shelf'. Tidbits such as ' ... home will never ever be one place. It will be constantly moving. Like the waves, like the beads in the kaleidoscope' has made this one of my favorite books!" Julia Simens, Author, Emotional Resilience and the Expat Child: practical storytelling techniques that will strengthen the global family "This is a book that will help children and their parents (and stuffed animals!) with any transition or move.
