The Re-entry Roadmap

Dr. Cate Brubaker

We go beyond reverse culture shock to talk about what re-entry after living abroad is *really* about, and how you can make your return the most powerful part of your entire living abroad journey. Because while travel is the catalyst, re-entry is where your transformation is made visible!

You’ve returned home weeks or even months earlier than expected. You likely had little warning or time to pack up your life abroad and say your good-byes. Your flight home might have been nerve-racking and chaotic, and now you’re exhausted and adjusting to a whole new reality…spending much of your time at home, maybe completing coursework online, and facing a lot of uncertainty. Re-entry is a challenging experience when you know it’s coming. When it’s unexpected and earlier than planned? Even more so. That’s why I created a resource to help you get started processing and navigating this challenging experience. Get the corresponding PDF here.
