International sojourning covers both graduate and undergraduate students studying abroad and international students in the U.
A discussion of expectations and knowledge of the potential "new self" that sojourning often creates may be essential for preventing difficult reentry transitions.

Counselors and counselor educators may also benefit from identifying and reflecting on their own experiences, biases, and stereotypes about international sojourning.
