About this Event

For a deep look into intercultural work and a solid way to increase cultural effectiveness, please consider joining me for my two-day workshop!

Intercultural communication is not generally taught in psychology, social work, or counseling graduate diversity classes. This is an opportunity to learn about how to “fill a gap” in your training.

Schedule is amendable to those on the East to West Coast!

Some of the topics covered include:

• How intercultural communication (IC) differs from traditional approaches to diversity used in psychology, and how it is complementary

• Intercultural sensitivity (it is a precursor for intercultural effectiveness and needed for intercultural empathy)

• CQ and 12 key cultural dimensions for an effective cultural analysis

• Apply the dimensions to culture and emotion, conflict, and interactions

• Client applications and related exercises

• Learn how starting with culture-general models can contribute to decreased bias

• Working at the intersection of intercultural communication and social justice
