Introduction to Global Psychologies: Mental Health and the Global South
The training of professionals, working in the mental health field, is deficient because of the Eurocentric nature of psychology and psychiatry that dominates it. The chapter discusses knowledge that is relevant and meaningful as contributions to the mental health field in a world that is increasingly globalized and /or composed of communities with diversity of cultural forms. Since the chapter serves as an introduction to the main body of the book, it describes the division of the book into four parts and discusses briefly the content of each chapter. Finally in concluding, the chapter discusses the future place of global psychologies and looks to a future when a diversity of psychologies informs the training of professionals working in the field of mental health.
