CROSS-CULTURAL CRISIS INTERVENTION AND COUNSELING

Cross-Cultural Counseling is a course specifically designed to give your organization a deeper understanding of how to help people manage crises through a cross-cultural perspective. Culture involves not only where a person comes from, but subcultures within that culture as well.


A cross-cultural approach is essential to understanding how an individual relates to and interprets other cultures. For counseling across cultures to be effective, the practitioner must first understand the values and traditions of the individual. Methods that work in one cultural context may not work in another.

This course takes a particular focus on cross-cultural crisis processing, and will focus on groups that are relevant to your organization’s work. You can read more about Cross-CulturalCounseling here.
