Who We Are

About IICCP

Founded on March 6, 1998, IICCP’s mission is to foster the internationalization of the science of psychology. This translates into the following objectives at the international and local levels: (1) to promote cross-cultural awareness at St. Francis College by developing classes, workshops, symposia, and conferences; (2) to foster a sense of appreciation of the cultural richness in the St. Francis College community; (3) to involve students in cross-cultural research; (4) to sponsor research and publications in international and cross-cultural psychology; and (5) to create a network of ties with other interested psychological institutions in the US and abroad. Members of the institute are active locally, nationally, and internationally.

The Director of the Institute, Uwe P. Gielen, received his Ph.D. in social psychology from Harvard University. His work has centered on international psychology and moral development. He is a former president of the International Council of Psychologists (ICP), the Society for Cross-Cultural Research (SCCR), and APA’s International Psychology Division. The Institute’s Director of Student Affairs, Renée Goodstein, received her Ph.D. from Fordham University. She practices psychotherapy with a specialization in multiculturalism.

Students play an important role in the activities of the institute. Each semester, two to three student assistants help to keep the institute going by editing papers, proof-reading chapters and articles for professional journals, involvement in research activities, marketing events, helping to set up guest lectures and conferences, and advising students about psychology. Members of the Psi Chi Chapter and the Psychology Club also lend their support to the institute.

Every year, APA Division 52 (International Psychology) selects one book for the Ursula Gielen Global Psychology Book Award. The award is presented to the author(s) or editor(s) of a book that adds greatly to our understanding of global phenomena and problems from a psychological point of view. The award committee is chaired by Renée Goodstein, Ph.D., with Uwe P. Gielen as an ex-officio member.

Many factors in the world today, such as globalization and a rise in immigration, are increasing the need for mental health practitioners to acquire the ability to interact effectively with people of different cultures. This text is the most comprehensive volume to address this need to date, exploring the history, philosophy, processes, and trends in counseling and psychotherapy in 35 countries from all regions of the globe. Organized by continent and country, each chapter is written by esteemed scholars drawing on intimate knowledge of their homelands. They explore such topics as their countries’ demographics, counselor education programs, current counseling theories and trends, and significant traditional and indigenous treatment and healing methods. This consistent structure facilitates quick and easy comparisons and contrasts across cultures, offering an enhanced understanding of diversity and multicultural competencies. Overall, this text is an invaluable resource for practitioners, researchers, students, and faculty, showing them how to look beyond their own borders and cultures to enhance their counseling practices.

With contributions from scholars from all five continents, this book is a trove of information and insight." -- James MacGregor Burns, author of Leadership

The Global Obama examines the president’s image in five continents and more than twenty countries. It is the first book to look at Barack Obama’s presidency and analyze how Obama and America are viewed by publics, governments, and political commentators around world. The author of Barack Obama in Hawaii and Indonesia: The Making of a Global President (Top 10 Black History Book) scaled the globe to gather opinions – cultural, historical, and political analyses – about Obama’s leadership style. Writers, journalists, psychologists, consultants, and social scientists present their views on Obama’s leadership, popularity, and many of the global challenges that still remain unresolved. As a progress report, this is the first book that tries to grasp ‘the Obama phenomenon’ in totality, as perceived by populations around the world with special focus on America’s leadership in the 21stCentury.

This edited reader, with contributions from experts on families in various countries, documents and explains family life and practices throughout the world, including preindustrial, developing, fully industrialized, and postmodern information societies. Each chapter is organized around a set of similar themes and concerns: socio-historical and demographic information about the families being studied, religious and cultural beliefs tied to family practices, husband-wife/parent roles and responsibilities, parent-child socialization, and policy initiatives within that society. The opening chapters provide a theoretical overview and a basis for examining family changes and organization patterns from evolutionary and postmodern perspectives.

Content

This volume focuses on the general nature of cultural influences in counseling rather than on counseling specific ethnic groups. Counseling practices from all over the world, not just those of Western society, are explored. Bringing together the work of a diverse group of international experts, the editors have compiled a volume that is not only concise and teachable, but also an essential guidebook for all mental health professionals.

The editors have brought together leading psychologists, psychiatrists, anthropologists, and others to consider the interaction of psychosocial, biological, and cultural variables as they influence the assessment of health and illness and the course of therapy. The volume includes broadly conceived theoretical and survey chapters; detailed descriptions of specific healing traditions in Asia, the Americas, Africa, and the Arab world; and chapters focusing on such current issues as multicultural concerns within societies, specific populations, such as refugees, and the integration of traditional and modern forms of counseling and healing. Taken together, the chapters offer a broad overview of Western and non-Western traditions as these span the divides among psychosocial, medical, and religious approaches.

The Handbook of Culture, Therapy, and Healing is a unique resource, containing information about Western therapies practiced in non-Western cultures, non-Western therapies practiced both in their own context and in the West, shamanism, and religious healing, and their interrelationships; as well as contemporary (Western) scientific perspectives on the wide range of therapy and healing practices. It will expand the horizons of all those who work with or study human beings in distress.
