Intercultural Training Course

Course Description: Connecting Across Cultures

Whether at home or abroad, in private or professional contexts – we all have experience with cultural differences. It is a confrontational experience of the strange, that can challenge one’s own patterns of perception and understanding. This can unsettle or even shatter our self-image and our worldview. At the same time, a more and more globalized world demands a life serving and productive approach to such situations.

Instead of focusing on static cultural differences and a supposedly universal way of dealing with them, we will sensitize ourselves in this workshop to what makes the connection between people possible, even beyond alleged differences. A certain affective attitude, consisting of an emotional-motivational readiness of one’s own self as well as the abilities of self-reflection, self-criticism and self-change is the key to success.

Date of the workshop: Dec 2 (+ Dec 3), 2019
Time: 9:30 – 17:30
Venue: tbd
Instructors: Michael Blech
