For courses in Cross-Cultural Psychology, Multicultural Psychology, and Psychology of Race and Ethnicity.
This text introduces students to cultural and minority status issues in psychology, and the role of multicultural issues in mainstream research. It focuses on multiple cultural groups that co-exist in the United States, and the sociopolitical aspects of this co-existence. An emphasis on empirical research findings complements the “real life” relevance of multicultural psychology.
