I'm not clear where "ethnopsychiatr y" fits in here - just an issue with terminology. If I find out elsewhere I will come back and edit the page! Crinoline (talk) 18:11, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
No I don't think it does, they are related fields to be sure, but I don't think that is traditionally an area of research in psychological anthropology. Probably more closely related to cultural psychology, or ethnomedicine. ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 18:23, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
Thought this page was very well researched and thought out , sub headings were very useful in navigating around the page. --Koko1088 (talk) 22:02, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
Psychological anthropology is a highly interdiscplinary field that studies the interaction of culture and mental processes. In particular, psychological anthropologists tend to focus on ways in which humans' development and enculturation within a particular cultural group, with its own history, language, practices, and conceptual categories, shape processes of human cognition, emotion, perception, motivation, and mental health. Psychological anthropologists tend to differ from social psychologists in that the latter are more concerned with general features of human interaction within social groups, rather than the historically and culturally specific effects of being socialized within a particular group; they differ from cultural psychologists in generally being more concerned with elucidating cultural models and in looking at effects in daily life, rather than specifically cognitive differences detectable in laboratory situations. These differences are often more in emphasis than strict distinctions.
Can someone please incorporate it here. Thanks in advance. XOttawahitech (talk) 15:22, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
