This workshop emphasizes ways culture and religion can be integrated into the therapeutic discourse through the promotion of intercultural resiliency. Interculturalism allows for relationship building and learning from each other while taking the therapist deeper than multicultural or cross-cultural communication. Resiliency as a healing process allows for creating new meanings to unfortunate life events based on developing the self through mentorship and community, the building blocks of resiliency. In the development of intercultural resiliency all resources are respected and included while fostering a more diversified and pluralistic therapeutic practice. Intercultural resiliency encourages and cultivates the broadening of world views while deepening of the therapeutic process.
