Overview

Cultures, Communities, Competence, and Change provides a transcultural psychosocial conception of the nature of individual and social activity. The author presents an integrated view of how people develop a psychosocially-based awareness of themselves and their milieus to shape what he refers to as their 'internested' social systems. In so doing he challenges current deficit/prevention emphases in the helping disciplines and promotes a constructive, prosocial model of individual and social approaches to change.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Provides a conceptual framework and guidelines for psychologists to relate their personal and professional activities and orientations to broader networks. The framework, called the transcultural ethnic validity model (TEVM), is based on recognizing the interrelationships between sciences and professions, cultures, communities, other social organizations, and individuals. Explores psychology's origins, current status, and barriers as well as potentials for future developments, highlighting changes in psychology's assumptions over time and identifying changes in people's conceptions of human nature, societal organizations, and scientific knowledge systems. The author is affiliated with the University of Maryland. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
