Introduction to Type and Reintegration
Elizabeth Hirsh, Katherine W. Hirsh, and James Peak have co-authored this manual, subtitled "A Framework for managing the Transition Home." Speaking with the authors at the recent Association for Psychological Type International Conference in San Francisco, Elizabeth explained they had service members and their families in mind. Coming from the expatriate background, I cannot help but notice the similarities in experience. Every repatriate also has a unique preference and coping mechanism for reintegrating into their home country after an international assignment. Type is a valuable method to unearth the sometimes subconscious struggles, and define an action plan to accelerate reintegration.
