Improving Intercultural Interactions
Modules for Cross-Cultural Training Programs, Volume 2

Edited by:


April 1997 | 240 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Develop a unique counseling approach for training clients, students, and target populations with Improving Intercultural Interactions, a pragmatic text that deals with concerns specific to intercultural experiences in counseling. Intended as a companion to the first volume by Brislin and Yoshida, this new book works from an educational model for counseling and presents training modules that are relevant for varying clusters of circumstances, from the world of business to the field of education. It builds upon the first book and deals with issues including ethics, ethnocultural identification, conflict and mediation across cultures, as well as empathy and cross-cultural communication. In addition, this practical text is full of exercises, activities, and self-assessment questions that promote growth and cultural awareness. By defining culture inclusively and broadly, the editors have compiled a unique collection of training modules that will be essential to professionals and researchers in a broad range of fields, including clinical/counseling psychology, educational psychology, social work, psychology, gender studies, sociology, cultural studies, ethnic studies, and management.
