Developing Intercultural Awareness: A Cross-Cultural Training HanDavies-Blackook is a rich resource for cross-cultural training. Drawn from the authors' experience, this guide contains simulation games, case studies, icebreakers and other training activities for developing cross-cultural awareness in virtually any setting. Robert Kohls and John Knight have mapped out one- and two-day workshops for those looking for preplanned programs, and the book's appendices include guides to simulation games, films and further readings. In this second updated edition, new and dynamic activities have been added to the array of material already present in the book, and the authors have ensured the relevance and timeliness of these cultural activities. This easy-to-use guide is both an excellent companion to The Survival Kit for Overseas Living and an extremely valuable resource for those looking to train others or simply educate themselves in order to become more culturally aware.
