FOCUS FOR THIS AFTER HOURS PROGRAM
Join IDD Expert Dr. Mai Nguyen to understand cultural neuroscience connections, i.e. those between culture, cultural values, and acculturalisation with genes and brain using an interdisciplinary approach that fosters the potential of a multicultural mind and enables fear-free cross-cultural management.
This session will blend cognitive discussions about key concepts and frameworks with real-world cases and opportunities to consider how you might apply the knowledge and strategies with your clients.
HOW IT WORKS
Our After Hours: Around the Table with the Experts series features one or more distinguished faculty and is designed for global peers who want to go deeper to strengthen their own expertise.
2-HOUR SESSION – APRIL 24 – structured format + in-depth Q&A conversational format*
>> Learn more about the brain and fear-free approaches to cross-cultural management
Dr. Mai Nguyen will introduce you to the fundamentals of neuroscience and cultural neuroscience connections. You will…
- Learn how to make the brain work for you to develop a multicultural mind and a fear-free approach to cultural differences,
- Reflect upon how you can help others do the same and engage in fear-free cross-cultural management that focuses on synergies instead of conflict, and
- Take away relevant materials and tools for use in your own work.
In the second hour, Dr. Nguyen will take participant questions (submitted in advance) to help you address opportunities and challenges in your workplace where applying neuroscience can be of benefit.
