  • Covers a wide spectrum of the various psychology specialties, with specific recommendations on how each should be updated to reflect a multicultural viewpoint
  • Presents theories, models, and research that will address both the undergraduate and the graduate (professional) curriculum
  • Promotes cross-national research collaborations

Not long ago, psychology held that its Western-based tenets were universal truths applicable throughout the world. From this early naïve assumption, the discipline has evolved to realize the need for cross-cultural competence in both practice and research. Today, commitment to professional ethics and scientific advancement is driving the adaptation of theories, models, and therapies to create a more inclusive psychology for the age of globalization.

Internationalizing the Psychology Curriculum in the United States responds to this challenge by setting out clear guidelines for educating and training new generations of culturally attuned practitioners and scholars. Addressing graduate course needs in a wide range of specialties, contributors explore the impact of sociopolitical and other local forces on the individual, and how this in turn can be used in more culturally sensitive and authentic practice. The book includes an overview of the evolution of psychology from ethnocentric bias to international worldview, and makes content-rich recommendations for modifying course design and objectives in these core areas:

  • History of psychology
  • Professional and research ethics
  • Developmental psychology
  • Social psychology
  • Personality
  • Gender psychology
  • Clinical psychology
  • Counseling psychology
  • School psychology
  • Testing and assessment.
  • Industrial/organizational psychology
  • Health psychology
  • Peace psychology

 Internationalizing the Psychology Curriculum in the United States makes an up-to-date reference for cross-cultural psychologists and an invaluable sourcebook for professors teaching upper- and graduate-level psychology courses.
