Internationalizing multiculturalism : expanding professional competencies in a globalized world by Rodney L Lowman( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The concept of multiculturalism has been widely integrated into popular culture over the last half century. Yet the standard multicultural constructs - such as race, gender, sexual orientation, and religion - while still essential, are no longer adequate in today's increasingly globalized world. This book broadens the concept of multiculturalism to encompass internationalism. In other words, it internationalizes multiculturalism. It argues that professionals in all fields can enhance both their multicultural and international competence to perform more effectively. The contributors review the relevant research and, drawing also from personal experience, apply these concepts to real-world professional practice in business, mental health, and education - three areas that are especially well positioned to impact the health and well-being of clients, employees, and customers. This book will appeal to scholars of multiculturalism as well as practicing professionals in a range of fields, especially business, mental health, and education."--Publisher's Website
An introduction to consulting psychology : working with individuals, groups, and organizations by Rodney L Lowman( )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Consulting psychology is a burgeoning yet sometimes underappreciated discipline whose goal is to empower clients and improve workplace functioning. In this book, Rodney Lowman describes this fulfilling and important work, translating theory and research into a succinct and accessible overview that will familiarize students, psychologists from multiple disciplines, and others with the field. Lowman reviews how consultation helps clients at three levels--individual, group, and organizational. Using illustrative case examples, he samples issues that can arise at each level and describes appropriate tools for assessment and intervention. The various consulting activities surveyed include screening potential job candidates, coaching individuals to help them adapt to new roles and manage relationships with colleagues, evaluating and improving work group dynamics, such as communication patterns, and working with different organizational cultures to enhance system-wide processes and structures. Leadership is given special focus as a complex topic that spans all three levels and requires the consultant to consider a host of variables. Multiculturalism and internationalism are also examined as competencies that consulting psychologists must possess in our increasingly globalized society. Lowman also considers important professional standards and guidelines for consulting psychologists, including the APA Ethics Code. An Introduction to Consulting Psychology may be read before or alongside other books in the Fundamentals of Consulting Psychology series as an overview to the field"--Publicity materials.

Career assessment : integrating interests, abilities, and personality by Rodney L Lowman( Book )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Career and work contribute significantly to personal and life satisfaction-and, when they are problematic, to personal unhappiness and stress. In this comprehensive career assessment book, Rodney L. Lowman addresses the three major areas that matter the most for understanding and helping people with their career choices: occupational interests, abilities (broadly defined), and personality characteristics. Chapters examine how these factors relate to career satisfaction, how to assess them using psychometric measures, and how to integrate the results of these assessments with the clients' specific needs and goals. Detailed case examples are included, as well as a nuanced discussion of ethics and technology. Lowman's career assessment model is the only one to integrate vocational interests, abilities, and personality characteristics-three domains that have proven their value in career assessment across a broad range of career concerns. By applying this model, career assessors can offer practical career guidance that makes a big difference in peoples' lives"--

A Clinical Supervision Model to Train Teaching Skills in Psychology by Rodney L Lowman( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents a model for training graduate students to teach, and reports the experiences and outcomes of an intitial application of the approach. The application took place with a large undergraduate class in introductory psychology with a professor in charge, assisted by five beginning graduate teaching assistants. The course met twice weekly, once as a large group for lecture by the professor, and once in small groups led by the teaching assistants. The assistants were given autonomy in determining the directions of their seminars, but were closely monitored. Most of the assistants lacked confidence in their teaching competencies and had difficulty asserting their authority. There was considerable competition among them for approval from the supervisor. It was difficult for them to cope with negative attitudes from their students, and they found it hard to evaluate them objectively. The following recommendations are made for improving such a training program: (1) clear definition of the roles for the teaching assistants in their sections; (2) increased training in the course's subject matter prior to assisting in it; (3) clear preview of what will take place in the supervision sessions; (4) a more active role for supervisors as they observe assistants' class performance; and (5) clear guidelines to teaching assistants regarding basic instructional procedures.

Uses of "Parallel Processes" in Evaluation Research by Rodney L Lowman( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frequently, the behavior of researchers reflects important and otherwise unrecognized aspects of the phenomenon which is being studied or evaluated. In other words, the "processes" of the researcher are "parallel" to the "processes" of the entity being studied. These parallel processes are illustrated with examples from an evaluation of five Federal organizations and the effects of a major personnel policy reform on them. The behavior of the researchers, a group from the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan, was frequently parallel to the behavior of the agency staff being studied. (Bw)
Similarities and Dissimilarities of Ethical Issues in Applied Psychology Disciplines by Rodney L Lowman( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although all practicing psychologists share common ethical concerns, the industrial/organizational (i/o) psychologist has additional concerns which are unique to his discipline. The institutional setting of his practice both isolates him from role models and professional colleagues and threatens his identity as a psychologist. In the organization, various stakeholders may place pressure on the psychologist for particular outcomes in personnel selection, job design, and organizational change. The absence of consequences associated with behavior is an ethical concern for the i/o psychlogist, particularly where organizational values may influence behaviors. Threats to informed consent exist in industrial settings, where interventions often involve the entire organization. Confidentiality may be compromised under the demands placed on the psychologist by managers wanting information from or about their employees. The i/o psychologist tends to view the organization as his client, ignoring individuals and their right to feedback in organizational decisions. A fine ethical line exists between organizational and individual interests. Although i/o psychologists' behaviors may vary from other settings in which psychologists practice, the American Psychological Association (apa) code of ethics can be adapted for use by i/o psychologists by appending the code with illustrative case studies. Practical steps to further ethical development in i/o psychologists include teaching ethics in formal coursework, recognizing the i/o psychologist, and reporting ethical violations. In conclusion, the i/o psychologist must become more active in the application of the apa code and in developing a case law. (Bl)
