Relocating to a foreign country for school or work offers in an opportunity to expand your world view and develop useful strategies for adaptation. Preparing for such a move requires both attention to the logistical details and emotional preparation for the experience of living in a new culture. 52 Activities for Successful International Relocation is the only book of activities that focuses on issues of international relocation. These excercises--grounded in research and field-tested--were designed to help international relocation trainers and educators create programs that aid the transition from a familiar culture to a new one. Sections include predeparture preparedness exercises to reduce "culture shock," in-country support excercises, and reentry activities to prepare individuals to readjust to life back home. Whether you're using this book in a business, education, or HR setting, 52 Activities for Successful International Relocation will help your student or employee manage the practical and emotional challenges of cultural change.

52 Activities for Exploring Values Differences

In 52 Activities for Exploring Values Differences, Donna Stringer and Patricia Cassiday have written and adapted sounds, ready-to-use activities for settings where the exploration of values differences is beneficial: the workplace, the classroom, corporate diversity training, international team development workshops, conflict management and others. The activities cover a broad spectrum for the varied needs of trainers and teachers: those who like hands-on, practical but low-risk activities; those who prefer experimental activities; and those who learn best if they can reflect on ideas. The authors' "Classification of Activities" at the front of the book helps users choose activities that are appropriate for their needs according to risk level, time required, context (work, personal or general) and group (individual, team, organization, domestic diversity or multinational). The directions for the activities are easy to follow, and the worksheets and handouts can be photocopied for use.
