Crossing Cultural Boundaries: Understandings & Skills (Part 1)

  • Lenox Community Center 6715 Minnetonka Boulevard Saint Louis Park, MN, 55426 United States (map)

Join us at Lenox Community Center in Saint Louis Park for this workshop on communication ethics. This workshop will meet for two Tuesdays.

Complex factors influence how we interpret others: social location (race, class, gender, culture, sexuality, locality, beliefs), psychology (intentions, needs, pre-definitions), how we understand the setting (nature of the event, significance of the activity). Increase awareness of the ways our socialization and social location affect our perceptions, interpretations, feelings and behaviors. Practice cross-cultural communication skills of perceiving and responding.
