Understanding Cross-Cultural Psychology: Eastern and Western Perspectives

Przednia okładka
SAGE, 18 gru 2006 - 280
Eloquently introducing students to international perspectives on cross-cultural psychology (both Eastern and Western cultures), this textbook contains many features to promote student learning. It:

- contains an array of vignettes, case studies and other text features

- addresses international research on cross-cultural psychology unlike other books that focus purely on Western perspectives

- is thoughtfully yet provocatively written, appropriately combining the narrative and the informative

The main thrust of the book's content is to discuss the framework of culture, family structure, health, bereavement and intercultural interaction - and all of their intersections - and consideration is also given to methodological and ethical research issues and their application to differing cultures.
