Resource description

While a wide range of literature on expatriation and repatriation tends to focus on individual adjustment and human resource management systems, the issue of expatriation has not been sufficiently examined in the context of personal development, beyond professional or career development, nor the impact of the sociocultural context. A psychoanalytic approach can be useful in understanding personal and family adjustment as well as some cultural determinants of response to expatriation. Issues of dependency, separation and individuation, and autonomy and control may provide important insights into expatriation and reasons why, for example, Japanese and American expatriates differ in their response
