"AmongUS" presents readings from individuals whose intercultural experiences give insights on how to achieve a fair multicultural society where cultural identities are celebrated and maintained. The essays provide a rich source of materials to teach a broad array of interpersonal, sociological, and psychological concepts that apply to educational, business, and cultural settings. The authors have arranged the book around four themes: Identity, Negotiating Intercultural Competence, Racism and Prejudice, and Belonging to Multiple Cultures. New to the 2nd EditionA new text organization -- rearrangement of the sections and of the essays within each section -- provides a better depiction of the processes when living in an intercultural world. 10 new essays enhance and broaden the text's range of intercultural voices and experiences. Included among these new essays are "second" essays from authors (Mei Lin Swanson Kroll, Alfred J. Guillame, Jr., Vickie Marie, and Tadasu "Todd" Imahori) who describe an ongoing intercultural journey in which the author continues to learn and to live. "Culture Concepts" boxes provide more explicit links to the theory that underlies the lived experiences that are depicted. Each essay concludes with exercises and discussion questions, "Learning AmongUS," that encourage students to analyze and reflect on the essay. The new edition contains more direct and straightforward links with the authors' other intercultural text, "Intercultural Competence," allowing easier use for instructors who teach with both texts in their course.Praise for "AmongUS" "The fact that the text is a reader makes it stand out among the rest. Its first-person narrative style is so engaging. We slip into another's skin for a moment. We feel what they feel and then slip out again changed. The text truly has this kind of impact on many of my students. It offers the understanding of intercultural issues that are less accessible in the traditional textbook." --"Desiree C. Duff, Cornerstone University"

This engaging text explores how everyday talk--the ordinary kinds of communicating that people do in schools, workplaces, and among family and friends--expresses who we are and who we want to be. The authors interweave rhetorical and cultural perspectives on the "little stuff" of conversation: what we say and how we say it, the terms used to refer to others, the content and style of stories we tell, and more. Numerous detailed examples show how talk is the vehicle through which people build relationships. Students gain skills for thinking more deeply about their own and others' communicative practices, and for understanding and managing interactional difficulties.

The text is organized so that relatively simple concepts and techniques are introduced in the beginning chapters and then built upon toward increasingly complex and specialized methods, allowing behavior modification principles to unfold in an orderly sequence. Coverage of seldom covered topics includes overshadowing, habit reversal, self-monitoring, self-instruction, and covert behavioral methods for changing respondent behavior.

Drinking from the Same Well is designed for those who seek a praxis-oriented theological grounding in the exploration of cross-cultural perspectives in the field of pastoral care and counseling. It traverses the broad terrain of cultural analysis and also explores in depth a number of discrete cross-cultural issues in pastoral counseling, related to communication, conflict, empathy, family dynamics, suffering, and healing. Cultural analysis and theological reflection are situated alongside numerous case studies of persons and situations that enflesh the concepts being discussed, and readers are invited to engage personally with the material through a variety of focus questions and reflective exercises. This book can serve as a helpful textbook for seminarians and a useful guide for pastors and priests, church study groups, multicultural parishes, and anyone engaged in helping ministries with persons from other cultures. The goal is to develop culturally competent pastoral caregivers by providing a comprehensive and practical overview of the generative themes and challenges in cross-cultural pastoral care.

In 1980, SAGE published Geert Hofstede’s Culture’s Consequences. It opens with a quote from Blaise Pascal: “There are truths on this side of the Pyrenees that are falsehoods on the other.” The book became a classic—one of the most cited sources in theSocial Science Citation Index—and subsequently appeared in a second edition in 2001. This new SAGE Encyclopedia of Intercultural Competence picks up on themes explored in that book. Cultural competence refers to the set of attitudes, practices, and policies that enables a person or agency to work well with people from differing cultural groups. Other related terms include cultural sensitivity, transcultural skills, diversity competence, and multicultural expertise. What defines a culture? What barriers might block successful communication between individuals or agencies of differing cultures? How can those barriers be understood and navigated to enhance intercultural communication and understanding? These questions and more are explained within the pages of this new reference work. Key Features: 300 to 350 entries organized in A-to-Z fashion in two volumes Signed entries that conclude with Cross-References and Suggestions for Further Readings Thematic “Reader’s Guide” in the front matter grouping related entries by broad topic areas Chronology that provides a historical perspective of the development of cultural competence as a discrete field of study Resources appendix and a comprehensive Index The SAGE Encyclopedia of Intercultural Competence is an authoritative and rigorous source on intercultural competence and related issues, making it a must-have reference for all academic libraries.
