Presentation about culture shock in International House Copenhagen

Join us this Thursday for the event on culture shock:

“- Have you experienced an emotional roller coaster ride since you came to Denmark?
– Are you having a hard time feeling at home in the Danish culture?
– Have you been feeling depressed or demotivated because everything around you is so

“This event will inform you about the psychological process behind migration, provide you with
some tools in order to handle it and give you information about what to do in case you experience a
culture shock.
