Show Notes

Here are three key takeaways from the conversation with our exceptional guest, Rachel Cason author of

💫 Importance of Identity: Identity construction is often compared to solving a jigsaw puzzle or piecing together spiky shards of a stained glass window. It's particularly challenging for third culture kids. We need to acknowledge the value of understanding our melting pot identities as we navigate through life.

🏡 Safe Spaces and Creativity: Therapeutic success for TCKs often lies in providing a safe and secure environment that encourages creativity and risk-taking. Through this, people can explore their ever-evolving identity and personality.

📚 Story Curation: How we curate and narrate our life stories has a massive influence on our personal development. This holds a spot of significance among TCKs. Our chosen 'artifacts' — clothes, jewelry, books, photos — can help us express, honor and validate our pluralistic stories, especially in the absence of a fixed domicile. 

The episode will leave you reflecting on your personal journey, examining your sense of identity and, potentially, unwrap the adult TCK within.
