Discussion: Cross-Cultural Psychology Research for Positive Social Change

Psychological research is more than an intellectual exercise. Data and evidence from cross-cultural work can be utilized to implement positive social change. For example, psychologists have worked on such social issues as global poverty, health disparities, and equality among groups. Other examples for positive social change one can consider how such research can be utilized to improve treatments and interventions for psychological disorders or for educational programs. For example, if research was only conducted in one culture, psychologists would not know whether the educational or therapy intervention that worked well in one culture works well or even works at all in another culture. Thus, conducting cross-cultural research can really lead to improved outcomes in many domains of relevance, such as in schools and in the counseling center.

For this Discussion, you will examine a social issue and explore ways that cross-cultural research can impact positive social change.

To Prepare:
  • Review this week’s Learning Resources and other resources from this course and select a social issue for which you think cross-cultural psychology research can play a role for social change.

Post and briefly describe the social issue you selected and explain at least three ways that cross-cultural psychology research can inform policy change to improve society.
