Virtual (CET; UTC +1)

Adapting to a new living situation is not always easy. Moving to a different country, join a multicultural team, or even only changing job in the same city, may let you experience the unpleasant effects of culture shock. However, there are ways to help you to get over the critical stages of cultural adaption processes. In this workshop you will:

  • Learn to detect the signs of a culture shock
  • The reasons and effects for culture shocks
  • Sharpen your awareness on the effects of culture
  • Practice coping strategies to cope with the effects of the adaption process – including the use of meditation to eliminate the stress of a culture shock
