Cross-Cultural Psychology: Critical Thinking and Contemporary Applications, 4th Edition

In this comparative field, at least two cultural groups are observed and compared by the essential component of critical thinking. Cross-cultural psychology studies the "links between cultural norms and behavior and the ways in which particular human activities are influenced by different, sometimes dissimilar social and cultural forces" Segall et al. This psychology studies interactions between cultures, defines their differences, and determines commonalities and psychological universals between them. Cross-cultural studies not only address psychological diversity, but also the reasons for such diversity. One essential outcome of these studies is determining universal applications appropriate for all people, whether they are coping with extreme traumatic events, or finding ways to circumvent and surmount the normal and average, although vexing, difficulties of human existence. Cultural psychology investigates meaningful links between a culture and the psychology of individuals living within that culture, and believes the behavior of individuals within a culture must be observed within the particular sociocultural context for specific behavior to be meaningful. Whereas cultural psychology refines its study within one culture, cross-cultural psychology is a broader and more encompassing perspective that incorporates many refined cultural studies.
