Overview

With the publication of this long-awaited companion to Intercultural Sourcebook, Volume 1, the editors have brought together the most comprehensive collection of training methods and exercises used by top trainers in the cross-cultural field. They include not only descriptions of methods but also specific examples of activities and suggestions for creating one's own exercises.

This second volume includes articles by twenty-three leading cross-cultural trainers and covers new or divergent training methods for cross-cultural skill development and intercultural learning. These include self-awareness inventories, videotapes, small group exercises, area studies, and an insightful collection of other methods from the programming of field studies to the use of cross-cultural dialogues, culture heroes and visual imagery. One chapter analyzes the role and significance of research in cross-cultural training and another explores how training methods can be adapted for different cultures and age groups. In the epilogue two authors share their thoughts on the future of cross-cultural training.

"At last, a sourcebook for cross-cultural trainers and researchers that meets the pressing need to provide procedures for intercultural training that are grounded in practiced delivery by expert trainers, based in the current knowledge base of cross-cultural sciences, and attentive to delivering measurable improvements in trainee functioning. Fowler and Mumford have gathered some of the best cross-cultural trainers available today and helped them craft state-of-the-art chapters on the what and how of flourishing elsewhere. Source it, read it, use it!"
-Michael Harris Bond, Professor of Psychology Chinese University of Hong Kong

Sandra M. Fowler, former president of the Society for Intercultural Education, Training and Research (SIETAR International), conducts intercultural training at home and abroad. Monica Mumford is an international project administrator for the Barents group and has seven years of training experience in a variety of corporate settings.
