This training will focus on participants understanding the role of culture in society and the reasons for the development of different cultural values, patterns, and behavior in response to society’s demands. Participants will learn how cultural diversity is appropriate and logical in response to needs, i.e. that individuals are never “just different”. Participants will understand that it is not possible for a person to understand all cultures, nor is it necessary. Trainers will emphasize the need to be humble and accepting of what they learn of another culture. Participants will continue to discuss the roles that pre-prejudice, prejudice, bigotry, and racism play psycho-dynamically as well as developmentally will help participants become aware of their own attitudes with regard to diversity. Using the participants’ greater insight and awareness, pragmatic applications for healthy and respectful cross-cultural interaction can be practiced.
