Lesson Plan


Activity created by Dr. Kris Acheson-Clair, CILMAR

As a result of this activity, participants will be able to: 1. Consider cultural adaptation processes within a medical model. 2. Reflect on their symptoms—or the physical, mental, emotional, and social effects of their transition. 3. Compare the pros and cons of short-term and long-term solutions for "treating" culture shock.
