What do you do when you’re the one who doesn’t fit in?

“Fish out of water” are those who don’t fit in the mainstream culture, often due to sexual orientation, gender identity, ableness, income level, or ethnicity. This book focuses on survival and adaptation strategies for fish out of water as well as those who teach, supervise, and collaborate with them. . Included are:

• Tools of code-switching—an important survival mechanism for managing the dynamics of difference—in culturally proficient organizations
• Compelling portraits of fish out of water who have learned to survive and thrive in schools and other organizations
• Strategies for working with children who are targeted and bullied because they are different
For everyone who has been or knows how it feels to be a fish out of water, this book helps you flourish where you are and mentor others who are different.
