Dublin Northwest Partnership with Partners Training for Transformation are delighted to offer a 2-Day workshop ‘Working Interculturally, Promoting Integration’

Would you like to understand more about your own and other cultures and feel more confident and relaxed when interacting with people from another culture?

Be more skilful in working with people from other cultures. Explore how you might contribute to a more integrated society?

This 2 day course offers:

  • An opportunity to explore and reflect on how you have been shaped by your own culture.
  • An opportunity to learn about, become familiar with, and explore some of the thinking and principles behind an approach to intercultural work.
  • An opportunity to consider ways in which you might apply these insights in your context.

The Process

The two days will take the form of a highly participative, experiential, hands-on workshop.

For whom is the course intended?

This course is for members of local community groups whose lives or work situations involve a significant intercultural dimension.
