The 2013 SIETAR Europa Congress has come to a close. We have all continued on our journeys or returned to the places we call home. I’ve been reflecting on the week and processing all the conversations and connections.
In my final installment from the SIETAR Congress Wrap Ups, I will leave you with a few upcoming opportunities to continue learning, further develop your skills and stay connected to the SIETAR community.
Last November I had the pleasure to attend the IDRInstitute course on Constructivist Foundations of Intercultural Communication with Dr. Milton J. Bennett. I have reflected on this course many times in the past year. It expanded my ways of thinking about the field and pushed me to go beyond what I thought was possible. Due to the learning from this course, I have clarity about my own views on this work. I feel organized in my thoughts about where we should be driving the conversations, and I feel motivated to be not an ordinary trainer but an extraordinary. Milton’s approach to this dialogue is forward thinking and the courses offered by IDRInstitute are pushing the field into the Constructivist Paradigm and beyond.
This November, there is a unique opportunity to study with Dianne Hoffner-Saphiere of Cultural Detective, who is flying in from México to present her course on Sustainable Intercultural Development.
Newly launched European Institute for Intercultural Communication – EIFIC has several upcoming trainings. Join their Facebook page and stay tuned for updates.
