Student Guide 1 List some cross-cultural misunderstandings or cultural conflicts that you may have seen in your service or could occur in your service. (Guide - bullet points list minimum 3-4) •Emotional reaction – yours and the other person’s •Uncertainty •Discomfort •Judging •Lack of information on knowing how to respond •Filling in of information •Interpretation of the incident •Avoidance Additions • Silence In some cultures, particularly those in East Asia, silence is acceptable and indeed desirable. The idea is that silence should only be broken when there is something important to say. • Demanding ‘I want’ lacks the subtlety of ‘I would like’ but perhaps such subtlety does not exist in the speaker’s language. The speaker is just trying to get a need across in the most direct way possible. • Smiling or laughing In a number of cultures smiling or laughing in apparently inappropriate places – for example, at other people’s misfortune – can appear tactless. However, a laugh or a smile can communicate embarrassment or solidarity with the person who is suffering. • Impassivity This may arise out of undue deference or simply out of an inability to act in an unfamiliar environment • Overconfidence This is the opposite of the above, but may paradoxically result from a high level of insecurity. 2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
