    How many pages to read on daily basis ? (Not everybody reads quickly, so good to know)

    How many days or weeks to prepare level 1, and level 2?

    For level 1, is it important to respect the time allocated or we can adapt it to our activities?

    I’m a physiotherapist working n humanitarian field & I guess you did develop the cultural side or other communication tools to be used with other cultures?

    No equivalent in french?

      Hi Anne,
      Level 1 is online and has 20 interactive segments. They are short so you can do them whenever you have some extra time. They don’t have to be done in one setting. It is even preferable to do one segment at a time. You then can immediately apply the skills of the session with patients or other communication partners before going to the next segment. The online part total takes about 6-9 hrs. At the end is a test.

      Part 2 is 8 hrs long and done live at the Harvard Club. The training follows the principle of a “flipped classroom” where the online Level 1 is the preparation, and Level 2 is intensive practice in small groups and deepening of the understanding.

      The training is transcultural – it is focussed on the preferences of the patient/communication partner and geared to recognized and respect that people have different communication preferences and how to respond while feeling comfortable about it oneself. Building rapid rapport and diffusing tension is a key focus particularly in unsympathetic situations.

      We are working on a Dutch version and we have trained in german. To accommodate different languages when we train teams in their hospitals we have the Post Training Support Portal that allows multilingual input.

      Hope this helps
      Elvira Lang
