Book Description:
In this book, the authors present current research from across the globe in the study of the psychology and influence of culture. Topics discussed in this compilation include the influence of culture in psychological functioning; culture change and adaptation through a comparative study of two cultures on the island of Guam; assessing and fostering the ability of Alzheimer's patients to take part in cultural activities; the psychological processes of biculturalism; examining children's cultural perspectives on the human-nonhuman animal relationship; Black American's cultural perspective on mental health treatment; black students and campus culture; developing gender- and race-based categories in infants; symbolic representations and the construction of cultural reality; the role which culture plays in affecting the development of autobiographical memory; and the possible link between the cultural support of violence and suicide risk.
