About the Workshop

Are you supporting sudden returnees? Do you want to help your returnees navigate their unexpected re-entry – and all of the accompanying emotions – with greater insight, meaning, and ease? Would a simple plan and easy-to-use tools make your life easier?

This workshop is for you!

I’ll share several helpful concepts and specific ideas, tools, and activities that you can implement with your returnees to help them navigate the more immediate effects of their unexpected return, and then process and make meaning of the time they did spend abroad.

You’ll learn how to:
– Start the re-entry conversation with your students
– Help them process their frustration, disappointment, and feelings of loss
– Figure out what your returnees need most right now and in the near future (and what you should focus on)
– Get their attention and keep them engaged
– Help them make meaning of the time they did spend abroad
– Support students when you can’t meet them in person
– Use (or adapt) the re-entry plan I’ve created for you
– And more!

For those who’d like to stay on after that, we’ll have a live Q & A and discussion. Depending on how many people join the workshop, we’ll either do this as one small group or in break-out groups.

You’ll also receive a handout with a suggested re-entry plan that you can follow or adapt, specific ideas, and targeted resources to make supporting your returnees easier and more effective.

This workshop will be recorded and you’ll have access to the recording shortly after the live session.
