Having completed a career in teaching psychology at Asbury University, Dr. Ron Koteskey and his wife Bonnie are volunteering their time to provide mental health resources for cross-cultural workers around the world. As part of this service they have developed a series of brochures / articles, and written a series of e-books including: "Coming Home": The Re-entry Transition, We're Going Home: Reentry for Elementary School Children (with a guide for parents), What Cross-Cultural Workers Ought to Know, one for parents titled Understanding Adolescence, and one for TCKs titled Third Culture Kids and Adolescence, Cultural Creations.
Three recent additions to the e-book library include Cross Cultural Workers Marriage Issues, Cross Cultural Workers Singles Issues, and Before You Come "Home": Preparing for Reentry.
