Learning Objectives

Throughout this Unit, you will recieve information and guideline on how to implement the “Decentration Through Images” Method developer by Cohen-Emerique to address the concept of Cultural Shock in a safe environment.

We discovered this method through the WELCOMM project in which it has been used as part of a training curriculum for social workers aiming at empowering them in managing an intercultural environment. We found the method really useful also to help young people engage with their assumptions and cultural norms and understand that what we see is mediated by the lenses through which we see reality.

After completion of this module, you should be able to:

  • Use the method with young people on a face to face basis
  • Use the resources we have selected in the implementation of the method
