Re-Entry - Post-Field


there are two kinds of re-entry processes...

  • There are two variations on the journey at this point.
    • You are returning for a break and to reconnect with senders; often called ‘home assignment’.
    • Or you are returning home for good. What appears under each ‘milestone’ will vary according to the circumstances…
  • For shorter-term trips home you may have less struggle with returning home.
  • For a permanent return, this can be a deeply unsettling time, possibly more unsettling than the original culture shock.
  • You need to plan well for your arrival, so you can take a good break, and show yourself plenty of grace!
