The Development of Cultural Self-Awareness: Design of a Program of Instruction.
Kraemer, Alfred J.
Design of a training process for developing cultural self-awareness--awareness of the cultural nature of one's own cognitions--is described. Spontaneous interactions of Americans with foreigners in simulated on-the-job encounters are video-taped. Different behavioral manifestations of particular cognitions and their relation to American cultural premises and values are shown in sequences of video-taped excerpts used for training. The training is intended to enhance the effectiveness of U. S. personnel in overseas assignments. (Author/EB)
