Winter 2023 Program Details
Intent, Impact, and Intercultural Competence: How to Successfully Navigate Difference

Led by Jory Agate, LMHC, and Fatimah Finney, LMHC
 
January 2023 | Shared Language
Communication is vital when it comes to building intercultural competence. More often than not, people assume they have shared meaning with others rather than asking if the words being used mean the same thing to all those involved. Having shared language and shared meaning allows for more effective communication about what matters. In this module, we aim to create a foundation of shared meaning by defining key terms associated with intercultural competence, including diversity, equity, inclusion, equality and social identity. Using IFS as a guide, we discuss how to understand what parts get activated when discussing the realities of these terms and how to use this knowledge to be Self-led in pursuit of building intercultural capacity.

  • Live 75-minute Webinar with Dick Schwartz on January 25th @ 4pm ET/3pm CT/2pm MT/1pm PT
 
February 2023 | Intercultural Development Continuum (IDC)
In this module, we focus on intercultural competence and the IDC as a framework for understanding the mindset one might be using to engage across cultural differences. Developed by Mitchell Hammer, this continuum comprises the monocultural mindsets (Denial, Polarization), the transitional mindset (Minimization), and the Intercultural Mindsets (Acceptance, Adaptation). We explore each mindset and the implications of them at the individual and organizational level. We explore the parts potentially involved with each mindset and how to navigate relating to others in a Self-led way.

  • Live 75-minute Webinar with Jory Agate & Fatimah Finney on February 17th @ 12:30pm ET /11:30am CT/10:30am MT/9:30am PT
 
March 2023 | Culture, Conflict, & Power
How does culture influence our conflict styles? When differences collide and rupture occurs, how can we use the tools of IFS to make repair? Much of how we navigate and internalize conflict, rupture and repair is influenced by our cultural programming. Everyone “blows it” now and again, and the question is not necessarily how to avoid ruptures when engaging difference, but how we repair those ruptures when we do. This module will look at how our culture influences how we engage in conflict and how power dynamics need to be considered when creating repair.
  • Live 75-minute Webinar with Dick Schwartz on March 8th @ 4pm ET/3pm CT/2pm MT/1pm PT
  • Live 75-minute Webinar with Jory Agate & Fatimah Finney on March 17th @ 12:30pm ET /11:30am CT/10:30am MT/9:30am PT
 
April 2023 | Intent vs. Impact
What do we do when our intent doesn’t match our impact? Sometimes we just “miss the mark” and what we meant to say or do doesn’t land the way we meant it to. Some may call these moments “microaggressions” or “subtle acts of exclusion.” In this session we will explore how we bridge the gap between intent and impact, particularly when our parts have gotten activated.
