Intercultural Communication Course

Cultural differences can unnoticeably lead to great misunderstandings and misunderstanding. So can the most basic manners (how do you speak to someone, give you or no hand?) depart from the ' ours '. More complicated are the misunderstandings that arise from a different experience on an emotional level. Different cultures go in different ways with sickness, death and religion, but also with shame, face loss and pride.

In the training Intercultural communication: Dealing with cultural diversity is done from your own experiences, so that the training closely matches the daily practice. On the basis of background information, you broaden your knowledge of the migration of non-Western cultures to the Netherlands. You will gain insight into the problems that migrants encounter and you will learn how intercultural communication can take place in a respectful and efficient way. In a relaxed environment you'll get started with interactive exercises focused on emotion management, relationship building, fortitude, rapprochement, aggression and non-verbal communication.
