Dear Recently Returned Peace Corps Volunteers,

I am an RPCV (Tonga-94-97)conducting my dissertation on cultural re-adjustment (also known as repatriate distress, reverse culture shock or re-entry shock) among RPCVs who have returned to the U.S. within the past year.

If you have returned within the past year, please consider helping me to document and better understand this under-researched but common experience. Participation involves completing an anonymous 15-minute questionnaire. I can be reached through email or phone, at, or (805)708-6355.

Thank you!

I have never been a PCV - in fact I'm Canadian. I did, however live in Tonga as a potter for many years, and knew many PCV's.

If anyone who knows me reads this, I'd love to be in touch.

Regards to you all.

Miriam Kay
