So müssen die BeraterInnen zum Beispiel varied Gesprächsfähigkeiten entwickeln, um mit Personen mit verschiedenen Nationalitäten kommunizieren zu können. Eine Atmosphäre von Vertrauen und Sicherheit muss geschaffen werden, weil in dieser shape eine kooperative Arbeit möglich ist, und die Personen dann in Ruhe ihre Probleme erzählen können und vielleicht eine Lösung finden (Ansen, H. 2006, S. 120-122),
Die Arbeit des Beraters muss sich im Sinne der Chancengleichheit an allen Personen anderer kultureller und sprachlicher Herkunft orientieren und muss den Zugang dieser Personen in die Teamarbeit sicherstellen (Nestmann, F. 2004, S. 306).
Durch die vorliegende Arbeit wird versucht, die folgenden Fragen zu beantworten: Warum ist es wichtig, die interkulturellen Merkmale der Beteiligten bei der interkulturellen Beratung zu beachten? Welche Ziele hat die interkulturelle Beratung? Welche Fähigkeiten müssen die BeraterInnen für die Arbeit mit interkultureller Teamarbeit oder Personen mit unterschiedlicher Herkunft entwickeln? Welche eigenen Merkmale muss der Berater beachten?
