In cross-cultural relationships, we often learn about the partner's language, history, and culture, as well as develop a sense of interconnectedness to others. Healthy and loving cross-cultural couples are curious about their partner's culture and are aware of their assumptions and biases about how things should be in a relationship. This session provides ten strategies to support cross-cultural couples to develop culturally mindful and respectful verbal and nonverbal communication styles, value systems, interaction patterns, and conflict-management skills, as well as co-create a mutual relationship vision.
