Social Work in cross-cultural contexts: does seeking and accepting help depend on worldviews?
02 / 2012 - 07 / 2016
When facing mental health problems and domestic violence, people with non-Western backgrounds seek less psychosocial help. We propose this is because different cultural worldviews of agency and fate create a mismatch between perceptions on help seeking and acceptance. In experimental and field studies, a new model is developed and tested.
