    Tips for Helping Children Thrive Through the Challenges of Moving

    Date: Wednesday, October 7, 2020 

    Time: 11:00am - 12:30pm BRT (Brasilia)

    Location: Online (via Zoom)

    Cost: Free. Open to all.

    Join us to hear Valérie Besanceney, author of two children’s books on moving, while she offers stories and tips to parents moving with school age children. The presentation is followed by a Q&A session and a discussion among the participants.

    Valérie Besanceney is specialized in the impact of a globally mobile lifestyle on a child’s sense of identity and learning experience. She grew up as a global nomad, holds an M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction, and has taught at six international schools on four different continents. As the author of two children’s books on moving, she offers children a story to identify with and the language and tools to successfully understand their own ‘moving’ story. She is a current board member of Families in Global Transition and the COO of Safe Passage Across Networks, two leading organizations that address transitions for families and educators. She also supplies content for online training modules for international schools and has presented many times on the topic of Cross Cultural Childhoods to staff, parents, and children.
