Reverse Culture Culture Shock Workshop for Returnees from Japan Coming Up
I’m happy to announce that my esteemed colleague Michele Pearce and I will be holding a free workshop for people returned from Japan and still struggling with reverse culture shock and other re-entry issues. We’ll talk about the phases of re-entry, help each other make sense of this crazy world called America, and enjoy senbei (rice crackers) and green tea.
Michele and I are both JET Programme alumni and we set up the workshop with recently returned JET colleagues in mind, but we realized there’s no reason why it has to be limited to them. So if you’re missing your host culture or are just trying to make sense of a world without 100-yen shops and karaoke, come on out.
Here’s the details:
When: November 20th, 3:00pm-5:00pm
Where: 5932 NE Glisan St, Portland, OR
