Regardless how long someone has been an expat, mobility issues are a major part of their life. Many expats can quickly estimate how many boxes will be needed to pack their belongings. They know the routine of good-byes and hellos. From personal experience, they know the grief that trails after them from place to place. They recognize this grief in their children, and may long for a ‘quick-fix’ to help them cope with this grief.A new book by Douglas W Ota, Safe Passages: How Mobility Affects People and What International Schools Should Do About It, might just be the essential resource needed for expats.
