Culture and Psychology: How People Shape and are Shaped by Culture

L D Worthy, Trista Laugne & Fernando Romero

Language: English


Culture is one of the most powerful forces in the world. It shapes how we make sense of our world, how we express ourselves and how we understand and relate to others. In this textbook we introduce cultural universals and culturally specific constructs in psychology. This textbook was created for an undergraduate course that appeals to psychology majors and non-majors because it meets several general education and transfer credit requirements.
