COR Workshop Training Modules

The Community of Respect (COR) Workshop is an eight-hour training covering the following:

  1. Module I

    Module I is a self-awareness learning experience that explores the fact that everyone has cultural values. The main goal of module I is for participants to identify their own culture and to gain an understanding of how their culture’s values influence how they understand others’ behavior.

  2. Module II

    Module II introduces participants to cross-cultural communication concepts and terminology that helps them gain an understanding of how individuals from different cultures communicate differently than those in the participants’ own cultures. It explores how these concepts are factors in the misunderstandings that often occur in cross-cultural relations.

  3. Module III

    Module III applies the knowledge and skills learned in Modules I and II to real-life encounters in different contexts through case studies and exercises on intercultural conflict.
