“I found that having the space to discuss some of our specific difficulties when working with immigrant groups was very helpful, to listen to others and help each other gain understanding and find solutions and agreed on ways to change our methodologies or approaches.

A good deal of openness, self awareness and understanding is required to truly be willing to communicate and work in an effective way with people outside my own culture…

What we needed was very specific discussion and exploration of issues regarding various cultural communication including tips and pointers that may help us in our day to day work and we got down to this more in our second follow up session.”

Skin deep shows the story of a Pakistani boy living in Britain, who has been psychologically affected for being bullied when he was a child. Self-harming, cutting his hair until bleeding, or treating himself with disrespect for his Pakistani origins are only his ways of releasing his frustration and his anger.
