Cultural Awareness Training Manual and Study Guide.
Kassebaum, Peter
This learning package is designed for use in conjunction with inservice training for law enforcement personnel in California as well as for use in law enforcement academies and community college administration of justice classes in police community relations. It consists of a manual on cultural awareness and a companion workbook. Based in part on the categories outlined by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training, the learning package reflects the broader area of cultural awareness by including more information from cultural anthropology and sociology. The manual contains the objectives and basic information to be covered. Topics include the following: introduction to cultural awareness; legal basis for cultural training; elements of culture; intercultural dynamics; conflict perspective; structural functionalism; interactionist perspective; gender (dynamics); sexual harassment policy; customs; art; music; food; ceremonies and rituals; family and kinship; marriage; religion; dress or appearance; values; bias; language; attitudes toward law enforcement; immigrant (terms); cultural change; immigrant and racial groups; cultural perception; hate crimes; communication skills; and social stratification. The workbook is designed around the use of Gestalt psychology and behavioral psychology with cued exercises and opportunities to use the manual to revise responses. (YLB)
