Dr. Katherine Rosenbusch presents a case study on how stress can impact expatriate families. Focusing on a couple called Sarah and Bill, Rosenbusch found that seven different stressor categories affected how well they adapted to living and working as expatriates. How can businesses better prepare families for working abroad, and better support them through the related challenges?
