Caribbean psychology : indigenous contributions to a global discipline by Jaipaul L Roopnarine( )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Caribbean is a vast region inhabited by individuals from a variety of cultures, with ancestral ties to various continents, who share a common history of colonialism, slavery, and indentured servitude. Where do we begin to form a culture-specific model of psychology relevant to this population? In this book, a diverse group of leading scholars within the Caribbean explore the conceptual bases for indigenous views on Caribbean psychology and its integration with psychological principles. They examine developmental research on childhood, adolescence, and adulthood; consider health-related psychological issues; review social psychological issues such as fear of crime; and discuss mental health, assessment, and clinical treatment. The result is a book that integrates theory from a number of areas in the psychological sciences and allied social science disciplines to provide a culturally rich snapshot of the regional components of global psychology

Fathering in cultural contexts : developmental and clinical issues by Jaipaul L Roopnarine( )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do men think about fathering? How does this differ across different regions of the world? And what effect does this have on child development? Fathering in Cultural Contexts: Developmental and Clinical Issues answers these questions by considering a broad range of theoretical and conceptual models on fathering and childhood development, including attachment theory, developmental psychopathology, masculinity and parenting typologies. Roopnarine and Yildirim provide a comprehensive view of fatherhood and fathering in diverse cultural communities at various stages of economic development, including fathers' involvement in different family structures, from two-parent heterosexual families to community fathering. This book's interdisciplinary approach highlights the changing nature of fathering, drawing connections with child development and well-being, and evaluates the effectiveness of a range of father interventions. Fathering in Cultural Contexts will appeal to upper level undergraduate and graduate students in human development, psychology, sociology, anthropology, social work, and allied health disciplines, and professionals working with families and children in non-profit and social service agencies across the world
