Professional psychology has its historical, intellectual, organisational and financial roots in the Western nations. However, much of this ′Western′ psychology neglects the needs of the communities which it now seeks to serve. The book discusses, explains and illustrates some of the potential of psychology beyond the strait–jacket that has been imposed upon it by its intellectual and empirical roots. It provides a positive model for psychological theory, research and practice, and offers a racially and culturally aware perspective.
