Issues and Debates:
Does psychology have ethnocentric biases?
This film begins by explaining the key concept of social construction and then illustrates three sources of potential ethnocentrism:
- conceptual and
- reporting bias.
It also stresses the importance of evaluation.
- Is there clear evidence of ethnocentrism?
- Is ethnocentrism becoming less of an issue in a globalising world?
- Does ethnocentrism apply in the same way to all branches of psychology?
