Psychology in Southeast Asia : Sociocultural, Clinical, and Health Perspectives Hardback
Part of the Routledge Studies in Asian Behavioural Sciences series
Despite diverse, rich cultural traditions and abundant economic opportunity, there has been a paucity of research on psychology in Southeast Asia.

In particular this book focuses upon critical sociocultural, clinical, and health issues and perspectives in psychology in Southeast Asia.
Overviews help contextualize the cultural data, permitting nuanced examination of significant psychological issues in nations such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, and more.
Psychologists and mental health professionals with interests in Asia will find this book to be a must-read, as will other readers seeking to deepen their cultural and international understanding.
