  • 1. How would a psychologist explain the importance of examining socio-cultural factors in developmental research? Society and culture are institutions where individuals are raised. Therefore, they impact their development from the fact that people get socialized from them. Their development will be greatly be influence by the society and the culture .Development of psychological abilities is affected by the nature of socialization and cultural experiences. Whether in nuclear, blended, or extended family; a communal arrangement; or a single-parent family, people learn social patterns and skills in this context. They find love and security and form attachments with people who protect and care for them and in this process, their development is influenced. 2. How would a health care professional explain the importance of examining cross-cultural research when searching for developmental trends in health and wellness? Social cultural research is important to healthcare professional from the fact that it can reveal condition heredity as well as nutritional explanations which are important in medication. All cultures have systems of health beliefs to explain what causes illness, how it can be cured or treated, and who should be involved in the process. The extent to which patients perceive patient education as having cultural relevance for them can have a profound effect on their reception to information provided and their willingness to use it. Western industrialized societies such as the United States, which see disease as a result of natural scientific phenomena, advocate medical treatments that combat microorganisms or use sophisticated technology to diagnose and treat disease. Other societies believe that illness is the result of supernatural phenomena and promote prayer or other spiritual interventions that counter the presumed disfavor of powerful forces. Cultural issues play a major role in patient compliance. One study showed that a group of Cambodian adults with minimal formal education made considerable efforts to comply with therapy but did so in a manner consistent with their underlying understanding of how medicines and the body work.
