Synopsis:

The Handbook of Intercultural Training, Third Edition provides a thorough grounding in the history, concepts and methods underlying intercultural training. The many analyses of tools, methods and approaches for specific contexts offer guidance in designing and conducting effective training interventions. The collected theoretical and practical information presented in this book is critical for professional interculturalists. -Lee Gardenswartz, Ph.D. and Anita Rowe, Ph.D., Partners, Gardenswartz & Rowe This book is just in time and just for me. It's as if someone assembled all the interculturalists I admire and respect and bribed them to share their latest and best thoughts in a well-crafted chapter. You'll probably feel the same way. -Sivasailam Thiagi Thiagarajan, Ph. D., Workshops by Thiagi, Inc. Completely revised with all new chapters, the Third Edition of the Handbook of Intercultural Training provides a state-of-the-art review of the field of intercultural training. Written by the leading authorities in intercultural studies, this definitively updated volume offers not only a convenient summary of research but also information on specific training techniques. It analyzes with depth and clarity regions of the world where intercultural issues have heightened--including Central and South America, Europe, and China, as well as Eastern Europe, Russia, and Israel. Other parts of the book examine theoretical and methodological issues inherent in understanding intercultural interactions and training and the contexts in which training takes place. An essential reference of intercultural interactions across disciplines, the Handbook of Intercultural Training synthesizes information of special note for professionals, researchers, and students in management, educational psychology, ethnic studies, sociology, and gender studies, as well as a broad array of human services such as counseling and nursing.
