A romantic relationship or marriage is always a challenge and a cross-cultural one even more, especially when the two cultures are very distinct like it is the case with Chinese vs. most Western cultures. Adding language problems to it makes it even more difficult and not few couples fail to bridge the cultural and language gap. Don‘t miss this workshop if you are a Chinese or Westerner who is sometimes or often struggling in the relationship with their partner from the other culture.
Participants can expect from this 2 hrs interactive sharing session:
- Learn about the Western and Chinese values and needs that show up in a Sino-Western relationship
- Find a more constructive and compassionate way to better connect with your Western or Chinese partner and better understand what his or her needs are.
- How to better distinguish culture from personality differences and why this can be very relieving
- Benefit from other participants’ and the facilitator’s personal as well as professional experience in this field by having a vivid exchange on experiences
