About this book

The psychology community recognizes that cultivating an international worldview is crucial not only to professionals and researchers, but more importantly, for professors and students of psychology as well. It is critically necessary for psychologists to learn from their colleagues who are working in different cultural contexts in order to develop the type of knowledge and psychological understanding of human behavior that will be maximally useful to practitioners and researchers alike.

This volume, Internationalizing the Psychology Curriculum in the United States, provides information and resources to help psychology faculty educate and train future generations of psychologists within a much more international mindset and global perspective. Recognizing that cultural context are central to a true and accurate psychology, the authors describes how cultural, economic, political, and social factors in different countries frame individual experience and affect the science and practice of psychology. Each of the chapters will provide a content-specific overview of how the curriculum in psychology with regards to social, development, clinical, counseling psychology, etc will need to be modified in order to present a much more global view of psychology.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book Internationalizing the Psychology Curriculum in the United States puts psychology into an accurate global perspective. It will appeal to psychologists who want to expand their views of traditional psychology to be more inclusive, contextual, and global. … It is an easy-to-use quick reference, as well as an in-depth examination. Most of the chapters are straightforward and easy to read, even while covering complex topics. The book can serve as an important guide for faculty who wish to update their courses.” (Gloria Grenwald, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 57 (32), August, 2012)
