The displacement process
Traveling is not just changing cities or countries, but also risking unknown experiences. Working, studying or getting married in a city far from the family of origin, the immigrant can live enriching moments and also a lot of loneliness and uncertainty. It is common for professionals who work and travel, or students abroad to experience crises of depression and anxiety.
In many cases, migratory experiences can be a risk factor for psychic pathology. The cross-cultural psychologist supports immigrants to redirect psychological suffering, to find ways to respond to loneliness, insecurities and challenges. Psychological vulnerability is part of the migration process due to the amount of stress that immigrants experience. Difficulties in speaking and writing the language, distancing from family support, decreased economic capacity, not being recognized as an individual with an identity in the welcoming society, and having difficulty engaging in relationships of trust are examples of cultural and social barriers that immigrants face. In the beginning, everything is very difficult for immigrants, and it takes time to learn how to relate in the new society. The expectation that the immigrant had with the immigration process is very different from reality, and requires a great effort to adapt. The cross-cultural psychologist guides the process of acculturation, so that the immigrant is more successful on this journey and finds the emotional balance to adapt and live happily.
Marriage is an art that must be balanced by the couple every day, there are many adaptations, concessions and donations.

Working abroad may require a greater than expected mastery of the language to be selected in qualified services, in addition, depending on the area of expertise, it can be very expensive and time-consuming to revalidate all licenses. It is a path of a lot of effort and, at times, excellently qualified professionals work marginalized because they are foreigners. There are moments of success and moments when the immigrant worker feels stagnated by the bureaucracies and demands of the welcoming country. Uncertainties and the desire to abandon a career abroad are combined with family conflicts, an imbalance of self-esteem and personal goals. Many feel lost and discouraged, the cross-cultural psychologist can guide and support clients in these difficult and crucial moments of life.
Studying abroad is an experience that young people connect with a reality very different from the experiences with the family of origin. Homes, meals, hobbies, religions and friends are very different from their previous experiences and at the same time as this cultural and enriching contact, students can face conflicting social relationships and feel rejected.
Feelings of exclusion, social marginalization and discrimination can be factors of depression and loneliness. The work of the cross-cultural psychologist is important because it supports students who have a large load of schoolwork in a foreign language in which they take more time to read and write academically, together with family and economic pressures.
The cross-cultural psychologist has experience in helping emotional conflicts related to fear of failure and the desire of students to drop out of school because they feel mentally and emotionally drained. Obtaining certification in a foreign school is a very stressful process and the intercultural psychologist can guide and emotionally support the immigrant.
