Interfaith Scotland training opportunities
Interpreting culture – improving cross-cultural communication - 13 August - 11am to 3pm. Our cultural background has a profound influence on each of us. It shapes our behaviour, values and beliefs. It even affects our thought processes and how we perceive the world. In this course we explore how culture forms a lens through which we interpret each other’s behaviour and learn how to improve our inter-cultural communication.
Working with people from diverse religion & belief identities - 9 September - 11am to 3pm
Interfaith Scotland course on improving our confidence in discussing and responding to the religion and belief of those we work with. We learn about the core beliefs and cultural practices of the main faiths, and the individual needs that may arise from a person’s faith or belief identity.
Three mottos to guide our approach to equality, diversity & inclusion - 29 September - 10am to 4.30pm. A course considering diversity in its widest sense, considering three models which provide insight on our experience of difference. We consider: the role of the dominant identity and the idea of ‘human neutral’, why some people ignore or deny the disadvantages that others experience; and how to respond to misunderstandings or offence.
