    Programs that offer workshops, discussion groups and other types of training which focus on the knowledge and interpersonal skills that participants need in order to work and live comfortably and effectively with people of differing cultural backgrounds. Cultural awareness training typically helps participants clarify their own values and attitudes and understand how these condition their expectations of and reactions to others. Training which addresses cross-cultural competencies focuses on the similarities and differences between two (or more) cultures and helps participants understand the perspectives, customs, history, use of language and other aspects of the other culture in order to help prevent cultural differences from becoming barriers to communication and interaction.
