    Exploring Cross-Cultural Psychology: Exercises for Instructors and Students is an accessible text that provides material for generating interactive discussion of a broad sampling of topics in cross-cultural psychology.

    This new edition (previously Interactive Exercises for Cross-Cultural Psychology) expands the range of topics of cultural interest to psychology and connects cultural study to health, forensic, organizational, and other applied psychology fields. Each chapter offers suggestions for exposition, simulation, and confrontation of current cultural issues while allowing for creativity in instructional design. Topics covered include regional and Indigenous psychology; expression and play; language; identity; social perception and cognition; interpersonal interaction; emotion, motivation, and health; development and family; government and law; economics and work; environmental psychology; and animals and other species. This revised edition includes new coverage of WEIRD psychology, vaccination, well-being, tight vs. loose cultures, and home and homelessness.

    Thoroughly and currently referenced, with connections to a wide range of accessible web-based and open-source materials, this user-friendly text is ideal for students and instructors of cross-cultural psychology across the spectrum of classroom and workshop applications.
