Relocation- the emotional impact of moving countries with Dr. Sanveen Kang
13 May, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Singapore is a transient place; many people will move after two or three years here. While some people have moved so many times that they can do it with their eyes closed, for others, relocation can be a stressful emotional rollercoaster. It can be especially hard if you’ve been in Singapore for many years and you consider it your home.
According to Dr Sanveen Kang of Psych Connect, the emotional impact of moving is in the top five most stressful situations we can experience across a lifespan – up there with divorce. People develop attachments to their houses and communities that can be as strong as the relationships with their families.
If you are leaving Singapore, are you and your family emotionally ready? If your friends are leaving, how are you going to handle the goodbyes?
Join us for this very informative and interesting discussion with Dr Kang on moving countries, whether you’re heading on for your next adventure or moving back “home”.
We will discuss:
* Emotional and psychological preparations
* How to deal and help with children’s emotions leading up to the move
* Saying goodbye and accepting closure
* How to hit the ground running with your new life in your new country
* For those who are staying, how to deal with their friends leaving
Date: 13 May
Looking forward to seeing you online!
