Being a Third Culture Kid: A River of Transition

Here is the link to the recording of my presentation for this year’s Occupational Therapy 24-our Virtual Exchange (#otvx13): ‘Being a Third Culture Kid: A River of Transition’, which I presented virtually, in my onesie on 26th October 2013. The abstract is available on the OT4OT site. My presentation starts about halfway through, following Kerstin Gadsten’s powerful presentation about shedding a disability label.

If you’re having trouble with the link above (a lot of people are), try this link, and with a different browser

I’ve also uploaded my slides to SlideShare (we had an upload error on the day), which can be viewed below.
