Half day training, on July 2019 the 11th (morning or afternoon: 3,5 hours)

This training is a theoretical and practical introduction to intercultural mediation. It is necessary to introduce a complementary look at our mediation practices to better understand and include the individual backgrounds of those involved in the process. Participants will also learn about the concept of interculturality, an essential resource concept for creating bridges between cultures and communities and for resolving conflicts rooted in misunderstanding, differences, or rejection of the Other. Several approaches to intercultural mediation will be presented to participants. The workshop will outline the main functions, techniques, and skills needed for intercultural mediation. The training uses interactive tools with the participants (role-playing, interactive cards, videos, PowerPoint, exchanges, etc.).
