The Contrast Culture Method:
A Training WorkshopCCMThe Contrast Culture Method (CCM) is an intercultural training approach which can be
effectively used in many different contexts (classrooms, businesses, teacher training, etc.) It
is a collaborative process where the goal is to raise awareness of cultural and value
differences that can affect our decisions and behavior. The method was first developed in
the 1960s, but began to be used in Japan in 1999.
The main focus of the training is a role play, where one person is a trained actor while
the other plays her/himself. The actor reacts to the other role player in a way that highlights
the contrasts between them, hence the name, Contrast Culture. A facilitator then takes the
group through questioning, discussion, and reflection. The group process is essential.
