Intercultural Empathy and Cultural Intelligence (CQ) Workshop
with 3 optional Intercultural Assessments
For a deep look into intercultural work and a solid way to increase cultural effectiveness, please consider joining me for my new two-day workshop!
Some of the topics covered include:
How intercultural communication (IC) differs from traditional approaches to diversity used in psychology, and why IC and cultural intelligence (CQ) are needed for increased cultural effectiveness
Cultural intelligence (CQ) (because EQ is often culture-bound)
Key cultural values for an effective cultural analysis
Intercultural empathy skills (it’s not the same as regular empathy!)
Culture and emotions, language, context, and cognitive styles
Intercultural conflict and resolution skills
OPTIONAL Intercultural Assessments (No CE credit):
Cultural Values Profile
Intercultural Conflict Style Inventory
12 CE HOURS FOR MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

A DEVELOPMENTAL APPROACH TO DIVERSITY: AN INTRODUCTION TO INTERCULTURAL WORK
Short evening workshop for mental health professionals (CE hours will be offered). It will also be open to the community.
It will be an introduction to intercultural work, with a focus on the developmental aspects. Integrating intercultural and social justice approaches will also be discussed.
It is the perfect precursor to my new half-day October 26th, 2019 workshop at Lewis & Clark, Cultural Values, Intelligence, Bias, and Self-Awareness. They are both stand alone workshops, but go perfectly together!
