Also to know is, is Psychology a universal?
Psychologists generally associate “universal” with “biological” but there is no reason why that should be the case. Universals can also be cultural and they can have a history. This point is discussed in relation to globalization and the spread of Western psychology around the world.
Similarly, is American Psychological research generalizable to other cultures? American Psychological Research is heavily influeced by other cultures. Studies of the mind began in Anciet Greece. These studies developed thorughout different countries in Europe and eventually spread to America. American Psychological research is not generalizable to other cultures
Subsequently, question is, is Abnormal Psychology universal or culturally specific?
The basic premise of the universalist view is that psychiatric disorders and syndromes are universal and have core symptoms that cluster into universal syndromal patterns. Thus, the same internal disorder can be manifested differently in different cultures but the underlying psychopathology is the same across cultures.
What is universal behavior?
When a behavior is shared among all people, we call it Universal. As human beings, we have these behaviors in common. Within a certain group, specific rules take hold. While eating is universal, the manner of eating is not. When the rules vary from one group to another, we call those behaviors Cultural.
