Abstract: Effective and appropriate interaction in a variety of cultural contexts is essential in health and welfare professions. A deficiency in this area makes encounters, diagnosis and treatment more difficult and may result in negative outcomes. But current research in higher education indicates that attempts to improve the intercultural competences of students and staff are only marginally effective. In this workshop, we’ll exchange and discuss knowledge and best practices in intercultural development and transformation in the field of health and welfare. We’ll examine concepts from the intercultural field and explore a developmental approach while maintaining a focus on individual development.
