Book Review

“Lauren Wells, founder and director of TCK Training, and herself a TCK from Tanzania, has put together this guide for those who work with and love TCKs. Citing the research of Dave Pollock, Ruth van Reken and Michael Pollock in the classic Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds 3rd Edition, Wells gives us reproduceable ideas so  that we can be proactive in helping the TCK learn how to capitalize on the benefits of a global life while acknowledging the challenges that can hinder healthy development.  I LOVE this book because in chapters like “Tuning in to your TCK’s Needs”, “Resolving Unresolved Grief”, and “Wrestling with Restlessness” she gives very practical ideas on just how we can encourage the TCKs in our life.”  – Ellen Hargrave (TCK Educational Consultant ) –
