EthnoPsychology can best be described as intercultural psychology that includes cultural beliefs and practices rather than focusing solely on Westernised Psychology. Westernised psychology as we know it is based on what I call generalised statistical outcomes of human behaviour.
Behaviour is often derived from other sources such as cultural or religious beliefs and practices. An EthnoPsycology Practitioner allows the possibilities of alternate sources that affect our behaviour. When a person believes and trusts in God, it changes the approach to behaviour rather than diverting away from such internal believes and conforming to the conditioning of society. As human beings, we must form our own beliefs instead of the demands that society place on us.
We must therefore ask ourselves; is society moving in the right direction when it comes to human behaviour in general?
