Preparing for a Move or Other Big Change

At our second Parent University, parents met with Ms. Sanders to learn strategies to help prepare for a move or other big change.

Dr. David Pollock observed and studied expatriates, both adults and children, as they moved overseas. He is considered one of the leading experts on transition and the flow of care before, during, and after transition. His transitional model is all about building a RAFT. When moving anywhere, but especially cross culturally, the RAFT model will help prepare you for the journey. RAFT is an acronym for Reconciliation, Affirmation, Farewell & Think Destination. –

Approaching each of the four steps of transition can help your family during a time of transition. For more information or to make an appointment for your family to meet with Ms. Sanders for counseling before your next big change, please email
