“The Value of Internationalising Psychology” or “The Value of Indigenous Psychologies”

In these turbulent and rapidly changing times, there is a clear need for a deeper understanding of human thinking and behavior deriving from different sociocultural upbringings and contexts. We need Psychology, the study of human cognition and behavior, and the Teaching of Psychology, to be further internationalised. Indigenous Psychological theories and ideas need to be fully incorporated into our teaching, research and practice of Psychology, in order for a more socioculturally-oriented Psychology to fulfil its mission and responsibility of serving humanity in an ever-increasingly globalising world.

The panel will briefly talk on the importance of internationalising Psychology and comment on emic concepts from their socio-cultural contexts.
