Summary
Globalization and diversity are the rules today, and professionals must be positioned to meet the challenges - and enjoy the benefits - of interacting successfully with clients and colleagues from different cultures. Transcultural competence is the ability to adapt to sociocultural settings anywhere in the world, domestically or internationally, with or without prior knowledge of the cultural orientations of the people and societies one is encountering. The concepts Glover and Friedman delineate and the applications, assessment tools, and intervention approaches they provide in this cutting-edge book draw on case studies that illustrate commonly encountered cultural dilemmas in a variety of practice areas. The framework offered herein is formulated to be immediately practicable for consulting and organizational psychologists and a range of other individual consultants and community leaders as well as organizations. The explanation of cultural traps associated with subtle ethnocentric assumptions, and the strategies given for avoiding them, make Transcultural Competence: Navigating Cultural Differences in the Global Community an invaluable resource. Using both historical and contemporary examples, Glover and Friedman present clear rules for identifying these traps and instruct readers on how best to find exits and solutions in order to thrive in our global era. -- from back cover
