Rashmi Singla: Psychology in a globalized world. Interplay between East & West

Foredrag afholdt onsdag d. 2. November 2011

Increasing globalisation implies an increased exchange of knowledge across geographical borders, also within the psychological disciplines. In the West, the spread of mindfulness and meditation practices in education -, health- and corporate sector illustrates this. Through these recent developments, Rashmi Singla will talk about how Western psychology can develop a more global orientation in interplay with Asian/ Indian psychology. Furthermore merits and perils involved including the processes of ethno/ eurocentrism will be highlighted.

Rashmi Singla is an Associate Professor at Department of Psychology & Educational Research as well as at Interdisciplinary Studies in Health Promotion at RUC.
