Cross-cultural psychology : research and applications by John W Berry( Book )

72 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 1,989 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
Intercultural relations in Asia : migration and work effectiveness by Chan-Hoong Leong( )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,450 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

Ecology, culture and human development : lessons for Adivasi education by Ramesh Chandra Mishra( )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The key to the upliftment of the Adivasi community is a deep understanding of their culture, psychological resources and cognitive strengths. Ecology, Culture and Human Development: Lessons for Adivasi Education presents a comparative analysis of the cultural and cognitive dimensions of various communities in Canada, Ghana, China and India, and seeks answers from this analysis for Adivasi education. It debunks the myths of low intelligence and inferior cognitive capacity of the Adivasi community, and emphasizes the remarkable performance of Adivasi children when assessed in terms of their ecological and cultural contexts. Extensively illustrated and containing substantive data on all relevant aspects of human development, this book is a much-desired addition to the literature on this crucial aspect of social development in India. It is a comprehensive resource that aims to contribute substantially towards mitigating the travails of the Adivasi community and ensuring their social empowerment--back cover
Human ecology and cognitive style : comparative studies in cultural and psychological adaptation by John W Berry( Book )

Ethnicity and culture in Canada : the research landscape( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and French and held by 425 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

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

10 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and held by 273 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 )

9 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The attitudes of Canadians toward multiculturalism were investigated in this study. Four attitude domains were examined. The first dealt with the attitudes held by Canadians toward a variety of ethnic groups in the country. The second involved general beliefs regarding cultural diversity. The third consisted of attitudes toward immigration. The fourth domain included the psychological phenomenon of prejudice and discrimination. Two questions constituted the core of the present study: whether Canadians view cultural diversity as a valuable resource, and whether confidence in one's own identity is a preprequisite for accepting others. The results for each of the four attitude domains in the total sample are presented first, and the major trends that emerge across the four domains are described. Respondents in the study showed a reasonably high level of overtolerance for ethnic diversity and a general acceptance for multiculturalism as a social fact. The study also revealed a considerable lack of knowledge concerning multiculturalism as government policy. (Author/AM)
Indigenous cognition : functioning in cultural context by J. W Berry( Book )

11 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cognitive psychology has established itself as one of the major branches of the discipline. with much to its credit in such areas as decision making. information processing. memory and learning. Similarly. the assessment of cognitive abilities has become one of the hallmarks of the practice of psychology in the school. in the factory and in the clinic. In recent years. these two branches have begun to interact. and the two approaches have begun mutually to engage each other. A third trend, that of cross-cultural cognitive psychology, has been informed both by experimental cognitive sciences and by the practice of ability assessment (see. for example. Berry and Dasen, 1974; Cole and Scribner, 1974). However. the reverse has not been true: the cognitive processes and abilities of much of the world's peoples studied by cross-cultural psychologists have not been introduced to psychologists working in these two Western traditions (see Irvine and Berry, 1987). This volume attempts to begin this introduction by asking the question: "What is known about the cognitive functions of other peoples that could enable extant psychology to become more comprehensive, to attain a 'universal' cognitive psychology?" Who are these "other peoples". and by extension, what then is "indigenous cognition"? The first question is rather easy to answer. but the second is more difficult
