Mediators and conflict-resolution practitioners need the ability to adjust their communications style to the preferred styles of participants from other cultures. The introductory course will give participants a preliminary understanding of intercultural issues as background and context. The course also will touch upon the variables of communications expressed because of cultural differences in ideas, attitudes and behaviors. The overall goal of this introductory course is to assist in communicating optimally with each other and to establish general processes to facilitate optimal communications through active, experiential learning.
