Terrorism has prevailed in human society from the earliest times of our existence. Terrorism, today with all its sophistication, presents a significant problem to the security and growth of nations all over the World. The first responders and communities need to enhance their knowledge and skills through advanced education about the cultural context of the terrorism.

The Cross-cultural Adaptation and Counter terrorism course teaches on how to be a competent counter terrorism strategist by learning the cultural sensitivities and eliminating the biases through the understanding of the formal concepts of culture and cross-cultural adaptation, comparative cultural patterns, and interaction among different cultures. This course further coaches on the nuances involved in defining terrorism and learning the effectiveness of counter terrorism tools and techniques by studying the examples of the International terrorist movements such as Al-Qaeda and ISIS with proper political and cultural context in South Asia and the Middle East as well as Domestic terrorism and home-grown violence in the U.S.A. and Europe.

This course is completely tailored to engage the participant’s subconscious, allowing implicit action to occur when the brain is faced with alarming circumstances. It enhances a person’s awareness, improves their mood, and most importantly, enables them to perform at a level of proficiency they would not otherwise be capable of. This mental state of cognizance is what we strive to instill in all our participants enrolled. We as combat veterans understand this concept extremely well, as we have experienced times of heightened stress in which our performance was paramount. Our training and mindset allowed the mind to switch to a state of consciousness that allowed the body to operate and not be affected by the situation at hand.
