ABSTRACT

THE PROBLEM Psychology has been considered as a typical discipline of industrialised, first world countries. As a science and as a profession, psychology has mainly been developed in the USA, Canada, Australia and Western Europe. Second world countries (or former communist nations) received psychology and other behavioural sciences as something alien to their culture. The same could be said of the third world, which includes the majority of the population of the world and a large majority of its countries.
