An exhaustive list! This is great! Where was “member Care” in 1991 when the book, Serving As Senders was published? I am grateful that MEMBER CARE is receiving an equal place in the missions process, for, what did Paul say: “And how can they preach, unless they are sent?” (Romans 10:15)
I would appreciate it if on the next printing of this great list that the two books from Emmaus Road International, SERVING AS SENDERS~TODAY https://eri.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=37&Itemid=242 and THE REENTRY TEAM https://eri.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=41&Itemid=243 could be “hot linked” to ERI’s website pages. And that under the MISC., ERI’s FREE MEDIA LIBRARY https://eri.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=85&Itemid=226 could be listed. THANK YOU! ~~~~NEAL

Lori and the group, great feedback. We’ve drawn Jenny’s attention to these. Thanks!
Hi! I love this list, thank you!!
Some other resources off the top of my head include:
Velvet Ashes is an online community specifically for women in the field. They also offer yearly conferences that can be done as an individual or with others.
Ulrika Ernvik has a few different resources for TCKs including a book, “Third Culture Kids, a gift to care for” as well as some workshops.
Gary Roe has many free resources on different kinds of grief. https://www.garyroe.com/free-2/
Lauren Wells also offers a variety of resources for Mks/TCKs including in-person counseling/debriefing for children. https://www.tcktraining.com/ She also has two books, The Grief Tower and Raising up a Generation of Healthy Third Culture Kids
Tanya Crossman has a book: Misunderstood: The Impact of Growing up Overseas and I believe she also does speaking engagements at conferences and international schools.
I didn’t see it in your list, but it may be there! Missions Training International (MTI) is also a great resource for people going on the field, missionaries coming back for debriefing, and possibly counseling as well. They also have many resources for children.
