Have you ever considered the following questions? Ask yourself -
What does family mean to me?
What does culture mean to me? How will my culture impact on my relationship and family?
Which cross-cultural issues will affect me? (if any)
Which faith will I practice? When it comes to children, will they be christained - my faith or my partner's faith; or both?
If your answer is yes, you need to consider whether these issues are going to be problematic in the future as situations arise where a decision needs to be made and a clash of cultural wills may prevent logic and common sense to prevail.
In collaboration with PRONIA (formerly AGWS), you are invited to attend a workshop addressing issues arising from cross-cultural / family of origin influence on relationships. The program is run in Coburg, Melbourne.
The manner in which we understand, welcome and communicate difference as a couple will play a major role in determining how effectively we incorporate and deal with cultural issues as they arise in our everyday lives.
Some comments from participants:
“It should be run more often …. Like a refresher course to help married couples”
“You can relate to the experiences”
“It is like history repeating itself; we all share similar experiences and react in the same dysfunctional manner – switching off”
“Kia was non-judgemental, encouraged discussion and made people feel at ease in a safe environment”
