This publication is aimed at those interested in intercultural psychology and who want to learn more about intercultural sensitivity. It is intended also for those who are planning on a lengthy stay abroad and expect to enrich their knowledge for example in intercultural communication or conflicts. It can be used as a manual for training instructors who work with intercultural groups or are interested in the intercultural field of study. For people to be successful in today's world, they should also be interculturally sensitive. They should have intercultural competences, which would facilitate easier orientation and assertion in today's multicultural society. Intercultural competence can be understood as a complex set of abilities and skills, into which are reflected personality preconditions (i.e., self-reflection, empathy, cultural sensitivity, inquisitiveness, tolerance to differences, self-confidence and lowered level of anxiety, experience) and which lead to the person's meeting the challenges of intercultural situations. The book is divided into theoretical and practical parts. The theoretical part introduces individual intercultural competences and their wider psychological context. The practical part presents an overview of training techniques that can be used during intercultural competence training.
