Running Head: Introduction to Cross-Cultural Psychology Society is a melting pot of different cultures, in which everyone identifies with their specific cultures, whether you were born into it, or you assimilated into it. Nevertheless, one is identified by their culture. Cross-Cultural Psychology is the study of human behavior, not only does it use critical thinking, but also scientific research in which to study the behavior from both variability and an invariable viewpoint. Culture influences how one thinks and thus additionally influences how one conducts themselves. Cultural science concentrates on how culture influences an individual's mental procedures and how one conducts themselves within their own culture. Under these conditions, we can see how one culture may have greater influence over another culture. Inside this paper, I will clarify one of the electronic readings from this week and how it identifies with culturally diverse brain science. Case Study The electronic reading that was of interest to me would be that of, " Pacific islands families study about: The Association of Infant Health Risk Indicators and Acculturation of Pacific Island moms living in New Zealand ." This article was originated from “The Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology”. The study looked at approximately 1,400 newborn children of Pacific Island which were observed for a period of time, after being conceived in the nation of New Zealand. The study examined areas concerning maternal cultural acculturation, as measured by a shortened form of the General Ethnicity Questionnaire, and that of a chosen newborn child and maternal wellbeing hazard marker. The review discoveries then uncovered that those newborn children who have a solid character to the Pacific islands culture really has detectably better baby and maternal hazard consider results when contrasted with those who have represented a powerless social arrangement. “Thought was given to Berry's Classical Acculturation Model, which demonstrated that separators had the best newborn child and maternal outcomes” (Borrows et al., 2011 p.700).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
