Book Presentations & Readings Series: "International Community Research: A Surprising Method to Understand Your Own Psychology" by Prof. Ronald Harvey
February 15, 2019
As the world becomes more interconnected via technology, travel, immigration, and trade – not only in money, goods and services, but also in symbols, morality, cultural values, and governmental systems – it follows that community psychology should be informed by global perspectives to understand context. The goal of this lecture is to introduce international community psychology, and to advocate international research as a method in itself to learn about the context of context – what we can learn when applying community psychology principles and values in cultural settings and among forms of life different from our own.
Ronald Harvey has a PhD in Community Psychology from DePaul University, Chicago, USA. He specializes in international research on substance abuse, addiction, and community re-integration of clients after primary treatment.
