identity & self-confidence
Third Culture Kids
Being of one culture and growing up in another or various other cultural environments, can be challenging for children who are otherwise fully monopolized by the requirements of their growth. It can make some Third Culture Kids question their identities too early in their development, they may feel different from their peers and don’t belong anywhere.
With the support of a therapist, Third Culture Kids can apprehend their situation with a new perspective to realize their specific benefits such as cultural intelligence or cross-cultural competence. In turn, they will be able to develop their self-identity and self-esteem and find balance and confidence in their social skills.
Third Culture Kids can have a hard time feeling like they belong. Strengthening their sense of self with a therapist can help them feel happy and confident.
