The intent of our training was to prepare participants to deal with reverse culture shock. After designing the training, we felt that this training could be done before, during or after reverse culture shock had taken place. We wanted to provide information regarding the stages of reverse culture shock as well as the solutions to dealing with it. Since our participants were in situations in which they had already experienced reverse culture shock, it was necessary to get them reflecting about their experiences abroad. Overall, the training was a solution to dealing with reverse culture shock in itself, in that the participants talked about their experiences abroad in depth, which for many of them was the first time they had done this since their return home.
