Michael J. Stevens, Uwe Peter Gielen
Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, 2007 - 444 páginas
Toward a Global Psychology defines the emerging field of international psychology. It provides an overview of the conceptual models, research methodologies, interventions, and pedagogical approaches that are most appropriate to transnational settings. In so doing, the book provides readers with a rich appreciation of how to approach a global psychology as researchers, practitioners, and students. The book's thorough review of the existing literature on international psychology from around the world provides the knowledge needed to successfully engage in the science and practice of psychology in an increasingly globalized society.
Arranged into four parts, the book discusses topics including:
*the specialty of international psychology;
*global perspectives on the history of psychology, current trends in psychology worldwide, problems and issues confronting psychologists in non-Western and developing regions, and the movement toward indigenizing psychology;
*guidelines for those involved in scientific and professional psychology around the world;
*descriptions of therapeutic and macro-level interventions conducted in non-Western settings; and
*predictions about the future of international psychology.
Case examples are integrated throughout to further highlight key concerns and challenges faced by global psychologists. Each chapter also includes a list of suggested readings.
Toward a Global Psychology is ideal for both researchers and students interested in a global psychology and for advanced courses on international or cross-cultural psychology. The book's appendix features a sample syllabus for a course on global psychology.
