Abstract and Keywords

This chapter discusses the consequences of exporting U.S. models and strategies of counseling to other countries, and it presents a few ethical issues linked with the internationalization of the field. Additionally, an in-depth discussion and analysis of specific lines of cross-cultural research in psychology and counseling (i.e., emotions, coping, and psychological help-seeking) is included and evaluated in terms of its cross-cultural validity and applicability to diverse cultures. Methodological challenges of cross-cultural research, theory, and practice are also highlighted, as are alternative approaches to performing cross-cultural research. The chapter ends with a brief discussion about the importance of cross-cultural collaboration and future opportunities for counseling professionals.

Keywords: cross-cultural research, cross-cultural validity, internationalization, emotions, coping, help-seeking, culture, methodology, collaboration
