Cultural Adjustment: Becoming Yourself in a New Culture

Workshop | September 26 | 1-2 p.m. | International House, Sproul Room

 Berkeley International Office(BIO)), Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

If you’re new to the U.S. or new to UC Berkeley, you are likely beginning the journey of cultural adjustment – a period of time when you try to make sense of your new home, figure out who you are here and learn to navigate this place while also remaining true to yourself and your home culture. Cultural adjustment is a natural part of life that happens to most of us who have lived or studied overseas, and while it can be a slow process, it is also something you can navigate successfully.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and Berkeley International Office invite you to a presentation on cultural adjustment and culture shock. CAPS psychologist Yi Du will discuss what culture shock is, how to recognize it, how to manage the stress that arises from it, how to combat stigma, and how to find support that works for you. Please join us!

RSVP here!
