In Considerations for Cross-Cultural Placement, Dr. Lindstrom discusses the importance of challenging an interns sense of self through cultural placements different than they are familiar of comfortable. 

She says, "The journey of cross-cultoral placement requires great effort, intent, and compassion. However, as stodents continue to grow in self-understanding, dare to be honest about tiieir own cultoral makeup, and courageously share tiiemselves and tiie lives of otiiers witii respect and care, the foundation for rewarding ministry is created."
