What are Critical Incidents?
A Cultural Detective package contains at least six critical incidents, each involving people from the package-culture interacting with people from other cultures in a variety of common settings.
Each critical incident is based on a true story, with names changed for privacy reasons. All incidents are vetted by the authors of every culture involved, as well as by other team members.
We have over 450 critical incidents in the Cultural Detective Series, and the collection is growing all the time. While we may not yet have a Cultural Detective package for a specific culture of interest to you, we may have incidents involving people from that culture.
So what are you looking for? Incidents about Brazil? A story related to the healthcare field? Something to help a student and her host family?
Our search function enables you to find an incident to suit your purposes. While the results will not show you the complete incident, they will provide a basic description. To see the full incident, subscribe to Cultural Detective Online, or license a printed package!
