TCK Training Workshop

| World Vision

The MI Member Care Network would like to invite you to a full day Third Culture Kid (TCK) workshop with John & Janine Barclay.

John and Janine Barclay

John and Janine Barclay joined Interserve Australia in 1987 and served as educators in South Asia from 1988-20015. From 2004 to 2015 they served with Interserve International as Family and Third Culture Kid (TCK) Resource Persons, visiting mission families and international schools in Central and South Asia.  They also conducted seminars and workshops related to the TCK experience, especially focused on transitions and re-entry to the passport country.

Since 2015 they have been based in Melbourne, and John has had a special interest in supporting the new wave of MKs from New Sending Countries, especially those from Asian countries.  As educators and member care providers, John and Janine combine personal experience with years of caring for TCKs and their families living and working cross-culturally.
