The purpose of this document is to prepare those who work with foreign students for the variety of emergency situations in which a consciousness of cross-cultural differences can be significant. It is primarily intended to provide educational and resource material to those who advise, counsel, and assist foreign students and scholars and their families in the United States. The premise of the manual is that an emergency situation in any setting elicits a series of emotional, psychological, and physiological responses from those in a position to provide assistance, but that in a cross-cultural setting, an additional element of anxiety is introduced due to the unknown aspects of the foreign culture involved. Whether the situation involves a foreign student in an American university, or an American abroad, counselors need to understand and respect the differences inherent in each culture in order to provide rapid, effective, and sensitive treatment of emergency situations. Hence this publication discusses emergency or crisis situations in order to help others prepare in advance to handle them. It addresses issues such as health problems, personal crises in the United States and in the home country, legal and financial crises, suicide, murder, sex-related crises, missing persons, and terrorist activities. Case studies, a directory of resources, and related resource readings are included. (BHK)

The 18 author contributed papers examine orientation programs for foreign college and university students studying in the United States and for U.S. students preparing to study abroad. The marriage of theory and practice in addressing the two major issues of: (1) lack of agreement on standards for orientation; and (2) the common lack of student motivation to attend orientation programs is stressed. Papers have the following titles and authors: "Survey of University Orientation Programs for International Students and Scholars" (Inge Steglitz); "The Development of Preacademic Training Programs for Incoming Fulbright Students, 1951-1969" (James E. O'Driscoll); "Brief Course on America: An Orientation to the Study of American Culture" (Harvey Sarles); "Foreign Student Orientation at the University of Pennsylvania" (Ann Kuhlman); "Orientation Services Provided for A.I.D.-Sponsored Participants in Programs Administered by Partners for International Education and Training" (Judith A.

Cultural psychiatry has been the portal through which advances in the social sciences have found their way into medical practice and health policy. Diverse issues and activities in research and practice of cultural and transcultural psychiatry are collected in this timely volume. The contributions can be summarized in three main topics: interdisciplinary settings for practice and research; migration, trauma and the context of migrant mental health, and cultural lessons for treatment. This book provides essential reading for health professionals and social scientists who would like to understand how culture influences mental health as well as the treatment and prevention of mental illness. It will be of special interest to medical anthropologists concerned with the relationship between culture theory and psychiatry, mental health care providers and policy makers in an international environment.

Case Studies In Japanese Management

This book provides a new opportunity for corporate strategy analysis within a Japanese context. It is the first academic textbook to be published in English which regroups case studies to emphasize key concepts in Japanese management. Where previous literature has set a separate focus on cultural, managerial and strategic variables, a holistic look is now taken at their influence on effective decision-making. Over 11 detailed cases depict issues in entering the Japanese market, strategic issues when managing in Japan, marketing management, crisis management, cross-cultural encounters and future technologies. The sophistication and depth of these studies, along with their teaching notes, provide the basis for pragmatic analysis. The mysticism surrounding Japanese culture seems magnified by the success of Japanese companies abroad, and the shortcomings of many MNEs that entered Japan ineffectively. Studying the empirical implications of these issues is a helpful exercise to develop more acute management reflexes in a Japanese setting. The book's carefully laid out cases will benefit business and humanities students who are researching Japan, as well as professionals who work within this sphere.

Every year thousands of college students die, leaving our campuses stunned and bereft. In the midst of crisis, it may be necessary to react quickly to their deaths, but appropriate responses can be accomplished through thoughtful preparation. From those who have weathered the deaths of their students, it is possible to adapt strategies that are compassionate, ethical, appropriate, and that reflect well on the campus. College Student Death: Guidelines for a Caring Campus is the result of many years of collaboration with more than thirty contributors. It applies the knowledge of university personnel called upon to respond to student death on and off campus and to provide solace to family and the campus community. This book provides support to university staff in the immediacy of student death, guides the design of policy before a crisis occurs, and provides instructional considerations for faculty. It enables the campus professional in understanding the complexities of effective response to college students' death and choosing an appropriate course. College student death affects the depth and breadth of the campus community. Members of innumerable campus units—including student affairs, housing, counseling centers, police departments, international programs, student life, legal affairs, administrative affairs, drug and alcohol centers, health centers, religious communities, and athletic departments—can benefit from this book.

Recently, the communication discipline has devoted increasing energy toward the study of aging, yet most of the research has insufficiently addressed a crucial factor in communicative relationships--culture. Meanwhile, cross-cultural/intercultural communication has not adequately addressed the aging process. Combining three powerful elements--communication, aging, and culture--all of which have an increasingly profound impact on today's multicultural society, this book focuses on older Americans in various communicative contexts within the framework of their cultures. Composed of original research by experts in their respective fields, the book combines communication, aging, and culture for a unique examination of those elements in American society. Section 1 deals with perspectives in cross-cultural communication and aging. These perspectives both illustrate the issues that greatly affect the lives of our elders and suggest ways to improve their status. Section 2 showcases three American co-cultures: Hawaiian, Arab, and Mormon illustrate how language, attitudes, and mentoring can serve as the links for maintaining cross-generational continuity in multicultural society. Section 3 demonstrates that many American organizations frequently contribute to the hardships that both internal elder customers (employees) and external elder customers (residents and patients) must endure. Section 4 incorporates popular culture and aging. It presents the role of selective popular media in portraying our elders. Because Americans rely heavily on the media, their mediated perceptions can have a profound impact on their attitudes toward the older population. Designed as a reader or supplementary text for college students in communication, gerontology, anthropology, sociology, and other related fields, this text can also be used by professionals in gerontological service areas, by libraries, and as a personal reference. It offers extensive appendices, figures, and tables for additional reference.
