Abstract:

The culture assimilator, a programmed self-instructional approach to culture training, is described, and a series of laboratory experiments and field studies validating the culture assimilator is reviewed. The results indicate that increased personal adjustment and better interpersonal relations between heterocultural groups are obtained for assimilator training as compared to other traditional forms of culture training or no training. Productivity measures are less affected, although there is some evidence that the assimilator training may help increase productivity as well.
