“The fourth audience that may find this volume very helpful is composed of those psychologists who are steeped in the literature and practices of their field in their own countries but have limited international experience. Most practicing psychologists who read this book are likely to learn something new about another field. Finally, researchers who are distanced from their practitioner colleagues may find the research agendas enlightening.” (PsycCRITIQUES, 11 April 2012)
