About this Event
For a deep look into intercultural work and a solid way to increase cultural effectiveness, please consider joining me for my most comprehensive two-day workshop! It filled up fast last time, so be sure to register early!

Intercultural communication is generally not taught in psychology graduate diversity classes. This is an opportunity to learn about how to “fill a gap” in your training. Bookmark Connections’ workshops focus on incorporating and integrating the intercultural perspective with the complementary social justice approach to diversity work as well.

Some of the topics covered include:
• How intercultural communication (IC) differs from traditional approaches to diversity used in psychology, and why IC and CQ are needed for increased cultural effectiveness
• Intercultural sensitivity
• Cultural intelligence (CQ) (because EQ is often culture-bound)
• Key cultural values for an effective cultural anaylsis
• Intercultural empathy skills (it's not the same as regular empathy!)
• Culture and emotions, language, and cognitive styles
• Intercultural conflict and resolution skills

Please see http://www.bookmarkconnections.com for more details about this workshop. Thank you.
