With the publication of this long-awaited companion to Intercultural Sourcebook Volume 1, the editors have brought together a 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 examples of activities and suggestions for creating one's own exercises. This second volume includes articles by thirty-four 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 of the authors share their thoughts on the future of cross-cultural training.
Both trainers and educators will find the resources in this volume, as they did with the first, essential for cross-cultural learning.
