Culture Shock Diversity Hypnosis: Tuesday, February 25, 2014, 6 PM, SUB Ballroom A

The goal of Cultural Shock is to help individuals gain a social and historical understanding of racial, gender, and cultural stereotypes. We expose stereotypes to help break cultural barriers caused by past inequalities and injustice. Cultural Shock uses real life experiences from past participants and community members to develop programs that support the efforts to increase cultural understanding.

Culture Shock © is an innovative and ground breaking program intended to expose cultural misconceptions through the unprecedented method of “Racial Hypnosis” ©

Cultural Shock has received rave reviews for their daring, head on approach to addressing cultural stereotypes.

Random participants are hypnotized to believe that they are no longer their race, gender, or culture, but instead a completely different cultural background.

While under hypnosis the participants will undergo several scenarios intended to expose racial, cultural, and gender stereotypes.

For Example, an African American student may be hypnotized to think they are Hispanic, and then placed in a scenario in which their subconscious plays out specific stereotypes of the Hispanic culture.

Diversity facilitators Patrick Wilson and Darnel Head will lead an explosive and eye opening debriefing that will enhance the students’ cultural awareness, and challenge them to promote an inclusive environment on their campus and in their communities. Culture Shock will provide the students in the audience with a Diversity Brochure that will provide statistical information about the cultures, genders, and races discussed in the show.

Culture Shock © is an extremely entertaining and educational program that you will never forget.
