Ethics and Concepts of Cultural Therapy.
Kagan, Spencer
Theories and practices of social scientists in relation to cultural change are described and evaluated. The first section considers psychology's emerging ethics, reviewing the work of Maslow, Fromm, and Money-Kyrle. Part II presents and considers some claims that specific cultures are maladaptive or sick, according to varying standards, and Part III discusses ethical and practical issues involved in intervention at a cultural level. The final section presents some models of cultural therapy, some analogies between individual and cultural therapy, and a personal approach. The models considered include psychoanalytic cultural therapy, behavior modification cultural therapy, and existential cultural therapy. The personal approach is integrative or eclectic. (LH)
