Culture Shock: Dealing with Stress in Cross-Cultural Living
The process of adjusting to life in a foreign culture is nearly always a stressful experience due to the cultural and psychological disorientation which results. Where this disorientation is severe and prolonged, physical or emotional withdrawal from the stressful situation will eventually result. In missionaries, it can lead to ineffectiveness in ministry, interpersonal relationship problems and dropout. In light of this, suggestions are offered for minimizing stress and improving survivability and effectiveness of new workers.
