Cross-Cultural Issues in HRD. Symposium 29. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This packet contains three papers from a symposium on cross-cultural issues in human resource development (HRD). The first paper, "The Perceptions of Physical Therapy Students Regarding the Provision of Transcultural Care" (Theresa J. Kraemer), examines the perceptions of 12 entry-level master's degree program physical therapy (PT) students on providing cross-cultural care. Data were collected via a qualitative, emergent case study design using interviews, observations, and document review. The results revealed the following five domains: (1) personal preparation; (2) prior medical care preparation; (3) academic preparation; (4) clinical preparation; and (5) the provision of culturally congruent care. The second paper, "An Intercultural Training/Consulting Process and Its Implications on Meaning Making and Organizational Change: The Case of a Hungarian Organization" (Maria Cseh, Darren Short), presents an in-depth look at an intercultural training and consulting process between an HRD team from the United Kingdom and a large public service Hungarian organization, using the case study method. The last paper, "Theory of Intercultural Adjustment and Implication for HRD" (Soomi Ha), examines theories of adjustment process and presents an integrated model through synthesizing previous literature. The papers contain reference sections. (KC)
