Webinar | Homesickness as a challenge and opportunity for personal growth

24.01.2020Comments are closed.

When we are studying, working or living in a foreign country, homesickness is a usual and inevitable reaction. We are missing to what we are attached to, what gives us a feeling of security – these are especially our relatives and friends, home place, but also our mother tongue and culture.

The deeper our insight into ourselves and our life circumstances, the easier we will find our place in the world and our life mission and our homesickness will reveal to us as part of eternal human longing for more existentialy fully lived life. This is why homesickness is worth cultivating.

On the webinar with the expert Miran Možina, psychiatrist and psychotherapist, we will discuss:

  • What is homesickness? What are different possibilities for understanding homesickness?
  • What are the usual milder and heavier forms of homesickness? What are the physical and mental signs and how we can recognize them?
  • Why it comes to homesickness? Which factors have influence on it?
  • What is the existential meaning of homesickness?
  • What can we do for coping with homesickness, so that we can use it as a challenge and opportunity for personal growth?
