The Irony of Cultural Psychology Research
Kim, Heejung S.; Sherman, David K.; Taylor, Shelley E.
American Psychologist, v64 n6 p564-565 Sep 2009
Responds to R. E. Erard's comments on the current authors' original article which reviewed a number of studies that identified cultural differences in the use and effect of different types of social support among Asians and Asian Americans and European Americans. Essentially, in his comment, Erard denied the validity of research examining cultural differences. The authors strongly believe that the issues concerning within-culture variation do not nullify the importance of conducting research on culturally based psychological and behavioral patterns.
