Virtual Conference 2020: Psychology from a Cross-Cultural Perspective Faculty of Psychology Universitas Indonesia & Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience Maastricht University


Psychological sciences and practices should take into account the cultural forces that may shape individuals and their psychological processes. Such consideration is paramount so that we can determine whether psychological theories are actually universal or culture-specific. Thus, it is important to understand the similarities and differences between cultural context (cross-countries or cross-subcultures within a country). Our virtual conference 2020 specifically aimed at providing a platform and forum for the latest perspectives in cross-cultural psychology.
