For more than a decade, Third Culture Kids has been the authority on "TCKs" - children of expatriates, missionaries, military personnel and others who live and work abroad. With a significant part of their developmental years spent outside of their passport country, TCKs create their own, unique "third" cultures. Authors Pollock and Van Reken pioneered the TCK profile, which brought to light the emotional and psychological realities that come with the TCK journey, often resulting in feelings of rootlessness and grief but also an increased confidence and ability to interact with many cultures. Through interviews and personal writings, this new, expanded edition explores the challenges and benefits that TCKs encounter, and also widens the net to discuss the experiences of CCKs, cross-cultural kids, who are immigrants, international adoptees or the children of biracial or bicultural parents. Highlighting dramatic changes brought about by instant communication and ever-evolving mobility patterns, Third Culture Kids reveals the hidden diversity in our world and challenges traditional notions of identity and "home" - and shows us how the TCK experience is becoming increasingly common and valuable.

The concept of Third Culture Kids (TCKs), children who follow their globetrotting parents around the world, is not a new one and has been widely studied. However, there is one specific group of TCKs who have, until now, been largely ignored - EdKids, the children of international school educators. In this new work, Dr Ettie Zilber brings together all the material she has collected over many years of research on this unique group and allows them to voice their own opinions, feelings and stories for the first time. Spanning a long career in education, Dr Ettie Zilber has served at international schools and other educational centers in the US, Israel, Singapore, Spain, Guatemala and China, served on the boards of ECIS and AISH, presented and published on cross-cultural themes and served as an Adjunct Professor for Lehigh University and Endicott College, teaching courses in Comparative Education and Intercultural Communication.

Socialization and personality are interconnected factors that influence Third Culture Kid/Global Nomad (TCK/GN) student adjustment when transitioning to a host country or international school. These students often struggle with relationships, regulating emotions, or an increased focus on socialization during their transition. This qualitative thematic meta-synthesis interprets studies of TCKs/GNs, and calls on a theory-building approach to explore the correlations between socialization, personality, and resilience. The berry-picking model (Bates, 1989) was used to select primary qualitative studies with interpretative exploratory findings. The findings were compared and rated to produce third-order constructs where three core concepts and five predominant themes emerged. The level of TCK/GN resilience in the face of the social and cultural adaptations that must be made when moving to a new culture may be predetermined by personality, but throughout the stressful transition, they can find support through social spheres of acceptance, familial support networks, use of language, and parental involvement, as well as through recognition by adults around them that these children will likely experience loss and grief as they leave social connections behind them during moves.

Third Culture Kids (TCKs) are individuals who have spent a majority of their developmental years outside their passport countries. They do not have a physical place they call home due to the fact that they have grown up in a variety of cultural settings, usually accompanying their parents as they relocate to cities around the world because of their careers. Instead, TCKs discursively co-construct an abstract sense of home, also known as a "third culture." Through narrative interviews, this study identifies a discursive sense-making process enacted by all members of such community. These narratives allowed a better understanding of how third culture kids recounted a TCK identity and how they discursively communicated a sense of home through a discursive sensemaking process. With globalization creating a more diverse and connected world, the number of TCKs globally has increased and will keep increasing over time. Understanding how these individuals communicate is a first step into further acknowledging how and why such groups feel such marginalization as well as their processes of identifying with communities and how they view themselves.
