Fanny M. Cheung: Award for Distinguished Contributions to the International Advancement of Psychology
American Psychologist, v67 n8 p719-721 Nov 2012
Presents a short biography of one of the co-recipients of the American Psychological Association's Award for Distinguished Contributions to the International Advancement of Psychology. One of the 2012 winners is Fanny M. Cheung for her outstanding contributions to the assessment of cross-cultural psychopathology, personality psychology, and gender issues, as well as her longstanding efforts in support of the development and advancement of psychology in Asia. Cheung has been a pioneer of international psychology. While leading the effort to standardize the Chinese MMPI, and as the president of the International Test Commission, she has advocated for best practices in cross-cultural assessment. By adopting a combined emic-etic approach to developing the Chinese Personality Assessment Inventory, the first Asian personality measure translated into six other languages, she overcame the ethnocentricism found in both the etic and emic approaches. As the current editor of the Asian Journal of Social Psychology and in her 20-year involvement in the International Association of Applied Psychology, she has facilitated mutual support for international psychologists and fostered their voices in mainstream psychology.
