Resources mentioned in this episode:

• If you missed last week’s episode about expat depression (which included some links to helpful resources for finding a therapist abroad), click here to check it out.
• The International Therapist Directory (first mentioned back in Episode 8, when I interviewed the site’s creator, Josh Sandoz) is a wonderful resource for finding English-speaking therapists around the world who specialize in working with expats and third culture kids — this website has different sections for each country as well as a worldwide section, where you can find therapists who work with people remotely.
• I also referred back to Episode 7, where we talked about how to balance acceptance with change.
