Introduction to intercultural communication
Using tests and interactive exercises, participants will learn with Dr Pradeep Chakkarath how psychological factors influence one’s encounters and communication with people whose cultural backgrounds are different from one's own. Such factors include stereotypes, prejudice, ethnocentrism, ways of perceiving and thinking.
The aim is to help participants get a sense of the extent to which their own ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving are shaped by their culture just like the thinking, feeling and behaving of other people is shaped by their respective cultures.
