Book Description

It is only in recent decades that psychology as an academic discipline has begun to recognize the importance of a cultural perspective. From cross-cultural psychology through to psychological anthropology, psychologists have taken a number of approaches to studying the role of culture in human behavior.

This comprehensive workbook is designed to facilitate students’ understanding and application of major concepts and principles of culture and psychology. The fully updated new edition features over 100 case studies, self-administered scales, mini-experiments, and library research projects, addressing topics such as culture, race/ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, and social class. Theoretical and guiding content is included in each chapter to embed the activities within key concepts and principles. Designed to contribute to the inclusion of cultural perspectives in the psychology curriculum, this wide-ranging book provides students with hands-on experiences that facilitate the understanding and application of major concepts and principles in the study of culture and psychology.

The workbook is supported by a substantial Instructor’s Manual that includes discussion questions, video recommendations, variations by course level, and suggestions for expanded writing assignments.  See "Support Material" below for access
