    Summary
    In this paper, we propose a sociocultural psychology of the lifecourse to examine the extreme case of families living in repeated international mobility. In this case, mobility is motivated by work, which leads to repeated relocation of housing and occupational arrangements across countries. Based on fieldwork, we highlight three challenges of repeated mobility and discuss their implications within sociocultural psychology.
    Summary
    En este artículo proponemos una psicología sociocultural del curso de la vida para analizar el caso extremo de familias que viven en movilidad internacional repetida. En este caso, la movilidad está motivada por el trabajo, lo que da lugar a una relocalización reiterada de vivienda y acuerdos ocupacionales a través de distintos países. Basándonos en un trabajo de campo, destacamos tres desafíos que presenta la movilidad repetida y abordamos sus implicaciones en el campo de la psicología sociocultural.
