Cross-cultural psychology : research and applications by International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology( Book )

78 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cross-Cultural Psychology is a comprehensive overview of cross-cultural studies in a number of substantive areas--psychological development, social behavior, personality, cognition, and perception--and covers theory and applications to acculturation, work, communication, health, and national development. Cast within an ecological and cultural framework, it views the development and display of human behavior as the outcome of both ecological and socio-political influences, and it adopts a "universalistic" position with respect to the range of similarities and differences in human behavior across cultures. Basic psychological processes are assumed to be species-wide, shared human characteristics, but culture plays variations on these underlying similarities

"The collection introduces readers to the concepts and issues; examines various acculturating groups (immigrants, ethnic minorities, indigenous peoples, expatriates, tourists, refugees and asylum seekers); highlights the global contexts for acculturation in a variety of societies; and focuses on acculturation of a number of special groups, such as young people, the workplace, and outcomes for health and well- being. This comprehensive new edition addresses major world changes over the last decade, including the increase in global migration, religious clashes, and social networking, and provides updated theories and models so that beginners and advanced readers can keep abreast of new developments in the study of acculturation"--
Ethnicity and culture in Canada : the research landscape( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and French and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ethnicity, write J.W. Berry and J.A. Laponce in their introduction to this volume, is likely to be to the twenty-first century what class was to the twentieth; that is, a major source of tension and political conflict. However, ethnicity is also increasingly likely to be a source of inspiration and diversification within society. Because of the rapidly developing importance of ethnicity and culture in Canada, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and the Ministry of Multiculturalism and Citizenship undertook in 1991 a project to review research on the subject. This volume, in nineteen chapters, is the record of the findings. Papers cover such topics as demography, political philosophy, history, anthropology, sociology, media studies, literature, language learning, education, and ethnic and multicultural attitudes. Looking back to the Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, mandated in 1963, the editors point out that the terminology has changed radically, and that the evolution from biculturalism to multiculturalism has clarified not only the political agenda but the research agenda as well. An insistent theme recurs throughout this volume: multiculturalism is taken increasingly as being a characteristic of Canadian society as a whole, rather than a concept focused exclusively on new Canadians. While the Canadian population has always been ethnically diverse, only recently has the diversity been systematically analysed. Ethnic and multicultural studies are remarkably well developed in Canada, the editors conclude. However, they point out one shortcoming more apparent in some fields than others: we often know quite well how the dominant group views a minority, but we often lack knowledge of the reverse attitudes and opinions. Berry and Laponce recommend that we replace one-way mirrors with windows, preferably open windows

Immigrant youth in cultural transition : acculturation, identity, and adaptation across national contexts by John W Berry( Book )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, an international team of psychologists with interests in acculturation, identity, and development describe the experience and adaptation of immigrant youth, using data from over 7,000 immigrant youth from diverse cultural backgrounds living in 13 countries of settlement. Immigrant Youth in Cultural Transition explores the way in which immigrant adolescents carry out their lives at the intersection of two cultures (those of their heritage group and the national society), and how well these youth are adapting to their intercultural experience. Four distinct patterns are followed by

Human assessment and cultural factors by S. H Irvine( Book )

9 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Against the background of NATO's Istanbul conference of 1971 (Cronbach and Drenth, 1972), the Kingston conference shows that great progress has been made by the community of cross-cultural psychologists. The progress is as much in the psychology of the investigators as in the investigations being reported. In 1971 the investigators were mostly strangers to each other. Behind their reports lay radically different field experiences, disparate research traditions, and mutually contradictory social ideals. Istanbul was not a Tower of Babel, but participants did speak past each other. Now a community exists, thanks to the meetings of NATO and the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology, to flourishing journals, and the Triandis et a1. (1980) Handbook. The members tend to know each other, can anticipate how their formu lations will fallon the ears of others, and accept superficially divergent approaches as making up a collective enterprise. Ten years ago there was open conflict between those who con fronted exotic peoples with traditional tests and applied tradi tional interpretations to the responses, and the relativists who insisted that tasks, test taking, and interpretation cannot be "standardized" in the ways that matter. Today's investigators are conscious of the need to revalidate tasks carried into alien settings; they often prefer to redesign the mode of presentation and to attune the subject to test taking. They face the diffi culties squarely and recognize that even the best means of coping are only partially successful

Multiculturalism and ethnic attitudes in Canada by John W Berry( Book )

13 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume focuses on two key research questions: the acceptance of multiculturalism, and the validity of the "multicultural assumption" (the case that confidence in one's own identity is a prerequisite for the development of positive attitudes toward others). An introductory chapter provides historical, cultural, and political background of immigration and multiethnic distribution in Canada. The balance of the volume begins with a specification of research questions and research methodology. Characteristics of a national survey sample are outlined and compared to the 1971 census distributions. Basic findings of each of the four attitude areas (psychological variables, immigration, ethnic groups, multiculturalism) are then presented and, in each, the distributions are presented both for the total sample, and as a function of the various background factors, such as ethnicity, region, and socioeconomic status. Various findings are integrated and considered in light of the historical and cultural features of Canadian life. Some implications of these findings for multiculturalism and intergroup relations in Canada are considered. The results of the study are summarized. (Author/EB)
Handbook of cross-cultural psychology by Harry Charalambos Triandis( Book )

54 editions published between 1979 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This article examines some of the limitations of social psychology and shows how they can be remedied by increased attention to cross-cultural studies. For example, many of the key constructs of the discipline, such as self, conformity, control, intelligence, and well being, are culture bound. he author proposes directions in theory development and methodology that will incorporate cultural syndromes in social psychological theories. Also, the author gives examples of methodologies that can consider simultaneously attributes of the participants (including their culture), attributes of the actors and targets of action (including their culture), attributes of the setting and context of the study, the prior relationships of the actor and target, and the attributes of the behaviors under examination

Ecology, acculturation, and psychological adaptation : a study of adivasis in Bihar by Ramesh Chandra Mishra( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This pioneering book applies, perhaps for the first time, the techniques of cross-cultural research to a study of Indian society. The authors study in detail the pattern of psychological adaptation of three different tribal groups in the state of Bihar - the Birhor, the Asur and the Oraon - which reflect different ecological adaptations, with resulting differences in settlement and occupation patterns. The authors examine not only a wide range of cognitive behaviours in relation to the ecological engagements of these tribes, but also provide a comparative analysis of the lifestyles of the three cultural groups, their patterns of child socialization, and their experiences of and attitudes towards acculturation. They also explore the experiences of acculturative stress in order to understand the different implications of integrating tribal groups with the rest of society. Combining the techniques of anthropological and psychological research, this important book will interest not only scholars in the fields of psychology, sociology and anthropology, but also educators, social workers, planners, policy-makers, development personnel, and all those concerned with the problems which afflict tribal groups in this age of rapid change
Intercultural relations in Asia : migration and work effectiveness by Chan-Hoong Leong( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book showcases some of the key thematic issues reported by Asian migrants and sojourners residing abroad, as well as non-Asians living in the Far East. The diverse range and scope of the papers demonstrate the interdisciplinary, convoluted and intertwined perspectives in human transnational movement. The book comprises four thematic sections, in Intercultural Relations and Social Integration, cross-national interactions and the notion of rootedness and nation state among individuals and their families form the nexus of discussion. On Cultural Competency in Workplace and Social Environment, the individuals and their performance in the social and corporate spheres take center stage. On one hand, both Asians and non-Asians share similar challenges across cultures, but on the other, they each reported different social and workplace dynamics as a consequence of their ethnic cultural background. In Sociocultural Effectiveness and Emotional Adaptation, the focus gravitates toward socio-emotional adjustment of Asian and Western sojourners in cultures opposite their own. In order to appreciate the cultural and emotive dimensions, discursive examination and comparative analysis across geographic locations are needed. The last thematic category in Understanding Asian Migration in Asia, a ubiquitous challenge in Asian societies will be presented - the rural-urban labor migration movement in China
