Abstract:

An intercultural relations ICR - Vietnam VN program was designed to provide pre-deployment training to Navy personnel for duty in Vietnam. The interim report examines the degree to which the program was having desired effects. A series of objective instruments was selected for measuring relevant attitudinal change. Baseline data were collected from trainees regarding skills in interpersonal relations, flexibility, leadership style, and level of self- actualization. This information was used as a reference in assessing skills after training. Tests were also administered to a control group and to a group tested only after training. Pretest and posttest difference scores were tested for statistical significance. It was hypothesized that training would have a greater impact upon attitude change than that in a comparable control group.
