Third Culture Kids
"A third culture kid is a person who has spent a significant part of his or her developmental years outside their parents’ culture. The TCK frequently builds relationships to all the cultures, while not having full ownership in any. Although elements from each culture may be assimilated into the TCK’s life experience, the sense of belonging is in relationship to others of similar background."
-Pollock & Van Reken
If you are a Third Culture Kid (TCK) or know one, you’re on the right page! Feel free to browse Libby's latest blog posts below. They were written with your 'tribe' in mind and based on the questions you ask on the red ‘Ask Libby’ button – so if you have a question, ask away! You can also check out some great TCK resources right here. That list will be updated as Libby comes across relevant material.
A lot of Libby's trainings are geared toward TCKs. Here are some of the talks she has given on the Third Culture:
- The Third Culture Kid. The world citizen
- Living as a TCK in a mono-cultural world
- Good Grief or Bad Grief? There is no such thing as no grief
- Relationships, the key to belonging
- Where in the world are the “who are you from” from?
- Understanding your temperament…it’s not always a TCK issue
- Using the media or being trapped by it
- “Placeless” does not mean “ homeless”
- See listing of training topics here!
Libby is also available for private or semi-private TCK training sessions. If you are interested, please contact her.
