Desiderata: Towards Indigenous Models of Vocational Psychology
Leong, Frederick T. L.; Pearce, Marina
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v11 n2 p65-77 Jul 2011
As a result of a relative lack of cross-cultural validity in most current (Western) psychological models, indigenous models of psychology have recently become a popular approach for understanding behaviour in specific cultures. Such models would be valuable to vocational psychology research with culturally diverse populations. Problems facing current psychological models and methods of improving cultural validity are discussed. An integrative model of cross-cultural psychology is reviewed and the relevance of indigenous psychological methods to the advancement of vocational psychology is explained.
