Effective Communication with New Residents

Professionals in social services in The Netherlands often work with clients from a refugee background who have legal residency—or ‘status holders’—in the Netherlands. Culturally defined expectations about government services can lead to large communication differences in these interactions and may lead to misunderstandings about Dutch rules and regulations. This programme helps participants recognise and effectively bridge these potential differences.
