Health and Cross-Cultural Psychology: Toward Applications
Pierre R. Dasen, John Berry, Norman Sartorius
SAGE Publications, Apr 1, 1988 - Psychology - 336 pages
Health, in the sense of `quality of life` rather than `absence of disease', is a universal goal in spite of cultural variations in the way it is defined and achieved. This book provides material from cross-cultural psychology for application in the development of a healthy society. Health and Cross-Cultural Psychology, while it points to leads for action, is not designed as a book of recipes - rather it summarizes the relevant research findings and scrutinizes the methodology through which they were established. Where necessary, the contributors focus on the need and direction for future research.
