Application: United States Dominance in Psychology
Collaboration is a critical feature of global psychology. In order for professionals to work together throughout the world, it is important for them to have some shared standards and philosophies. However, collaboration can be difficult in a world with diverse people, geography, politics, and beliefs. While it is not necessary for psychologists to agree on all issues, it is helpful to respect and appreciate a variety of theories and viewpoints.
For decades, the United States has dominated the field of psychology. When one country dominates a discipline, the field can become narrow and emphasize limited points of view that may not be applicable throughout the world. For example, developing nations may use psychological tests that do not accurately assess their population. Researchers in non-Western countries may try to replicate research in Western countries even though the study is not relevant for their needs. While United States dominance in psychology both contributes to and detracts from practices in other parts of the world, some psychologists have been quite uncomfortable with its powerful influence. In fact, according to your course text, American psychology has been accused of being xenophobic.
