Intercultural Foundations
Multicultural Service Center

Intercultural sensitivity is essential for effective clinical work. The field of intercultural communication provides a solid framework for strengthening our ability to engage with difference and diversity across situations. The developmental model used in intercultural communication also pinpoints where we may be getting stuck or observing others getting stuck around these issues in a non-shaming way.

North American mental health practitioners tend to have specific ways they define “good” communication and conflict resolution (e.g., “I feel” statements, direct processing, assertive communication). However, we cannot always assume our standards are universal or right, especially since culture is embedded in our communication and embodied within us in ways we often do not realize. Increasing our ability to build relationships and navigate conflict and culture are critical for effectiveness in our work and truly connecting with others.

This workshop is designed to introduce a couple of key intercultural communication theories and concepts, and then apply them. The importance of integrating intercultural communication work with social justice perspectives will also be emphasized.
