Abstract:

A comparative analysis of several approaches to training interaction skills for culture-contact was conducted. In addition, the range of American overseas work by the Air Force and other Government agencies was delineated with discussions of the type of training most required in different areas of involvement. Two major opposing scientific conceptualizations of training for culture-contact are discussed. The objectives of cross-cultural interaction skill training are presented with consideration of self-confrontation as a training technique.
