Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Global and What it Means For Their Identity

This presentation will provide a solid understanding of who and what Third Culture Kid's (TCK'S) are, how this impacts their identity, how you as parents may be impacted, how to recognise and address some of the challenges that occur, as well as how to encourage and celebrate the many positive attributes that being a TCK brings.

The Speaker:
Laura
Cowan is a TCA (Third Culture Adult), born in Canada, growing up mainly in Scotland, as well as living in Malta for a few years during her adolescence.  She is an international educator and counselor with 19 years of experience mostly within Asia, having worked at Hong Kong International School, Shanghai American School and Zurich International School. She currently works at Hong Kong Academy as the secondary school counselor.

Laura's personal and professional experiences have provided her with an excellent insight within the field of international counseling, and more specifically with third culture kids and their families. She has presented in Asia and Europe on this topic, and is a lead person in providing ongoing education and training to educators around the world.

This event is open for parents and caregivers, waiting and prospective parents, adult adoptees, professionals and students.
