In this course you will learn about the development of intercultural psychology as a distinctive sub-discipline of psychology, including the study of cultures' influence on cognition, learning, language, personality, work, social behaviour and psychopathology. A focus on evolutionary theory is also included. You will also learn about a range of research methodologies that may be used to study behaviour cross-culturally. Particular emphasis will be placed on understanding the wellbeing needs of Indigenous Australian peoples and on psychologists' ethical responsibilities to adopt culturally safe research and professional practices.
