COPING WITH EXPATRIATION
Expatriation is a traumatic experience, associated to multiple changes and extreme stress.Permanent as well as temporary migrations have in common the inevitable anxiety due to fear of failure and loss of everything familiar and secure. Each individual shall react to this crisis according to previous experiences, personality traits and background. Certain feelings are common (e.g.: helplessness, disorganization, insecurity, fear), and various symptoms may unfold (anxiety, phobias, “panic attacks”, depression, psychosomatic disorders). Focused psychotherapy is a helpful and efficient tool in gradually coping with these challenging events.Working through the crisis enables a process of “rebirth”, associated to development of each individual’s creative potential.
The aforementioned remarks and conclusions are the result of more than twenty years of experience in psychotherapy and psychopharmacological treatments.
