Rosemead School of Psychology
This article explores process-experiential/emotion-focused therapy (PE-EFT) as a technique for counseling third culture kids (TCKs) who experience identity conflict and unresolved grief. The authors suggest the PE-EFT tasks of empathic exploration, meaning protest, empty-chair technique, and 2-chair dialogue to facilitate TCKs' identity integration and resolution of grief.
