Cross-Cultural Adaptability InventoryBy Colleen Kelley, Ph.D. and Judith Meyers, Psy.D.
Awareness of our own cultural identities and experiences is the first step to becoming more effective cross-culturally. The Cross Cultural Adaptability Inventory (CCAI) workshop is a powerful experience that helps participants identify their personal areas of low cultural understanding and provides examples of ways to improve them. Participants will identify their individual strengths and weaknesses in four skill areas that are fundamental to effective cross-cultural communication and interaction: emotional resilience, flexibility/openness, perceptual acuity, and personal autonomy.
In direct response to needs expressed by cross-cultural trainers and teachers for a well-constructed and easily obtainable self-assessment training instrument on cross-cultural adaptability, this inventory was created. It was designed to respond to several needs and practical concerns which are expressed by culturally-diverse and cross-culturally orientated populations and by the trainers and professionals who work with them.
