Study Abroad To Bali, indonesia



Summer 2013 (JUNE 2-July 1)

“Cultural and Psychological Theories of Self in Society:



A Case Study in Bali”



Directors: Maureen Brady Coyle & Professor Chitra Raghavan


PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

This is an intensive 28-30 day socio-cultural immersion program where undergraduate students will enroll in one psychology and one cross-listed psychology/anthropology class for a total of 6 credits. The courses are separate but designed to complement each other. Graduate students will enroll in one psychology course for a total of 3 credits. Overall, the integrative program will focus on what it means to be a person, considering gender and sexuality, and how success/failure, well-being/illness and healing are understood in the Balinese context. A central part of the course will involve field activities and day trips. Students from all majors are encouraged to apply.

Course descriptions:

PSY 345-Culture, Psychopathology, and Healing (Undergraduate 3-Credits):

In this course, students will be introduced to the specifics of Balinese culture, how the Balinese view transgressions and therefore illness, and how they heal. To fully understand the dimensions of wellness-illness in Bali, student will be introduced to two key guiding precepts—Balinese religious beliefs and Balinese kinship systems. Balinese religion considers both Hindu principles as well as more local beliefs that include spirits and ancestral worship. These systems are intricately linked and illness is believed to be directly triggered by imbalance. Students will also be briefly introduced to the study of emotions, as it pertains to psychopathology. Students will then examine case studies that illustrate different psychopathologies. Finally, discussions will involve both evolving Western medical systems and traditional healers. Students will be able to visit traditional healers to understand local belief systems in a keener manner. Finally, the application of multicultural principles to psychological practice and research will be integrated throughout the course.

PSY 352-Multicultural Issues in Forensic Psychology (Undergradaute 3-Credits):
In this course, students will be introduced to the different theoretical ways in which psychology has addressed the tensions of cultural differences and universals in psychology with a focus on how cultures construct what it means to a person. Building upon these theoretical foundations, the course will introduce students to varying perspectives on gender and sexuality as one crucial component of self-hood and the core of many issues in multiculturalism. Readings will be drawn from classic psychology articles on self, gender, and sexuality as well as specific case studies of the self, gender, and sexuality in Bali.

PSY 825-Diversity Issues in Forensic Psychology (Graduate 3-Credits):

In this course, students will be introduced to the different theoretical ways in which psychology has addressed the tensions of cultural differences and universals in psychology with a focus on how cultures construct what it means to a person. Building upon these theoretical foundations, the course will introduce students to varying perspectives on gender and sexuality as one crucial component of self-hood and the core of many issues in multiculturalism. Readings will be drawn from classic psychology articles on self, gender, and sexuality as well as specific case studies of the self, gender, and sexuality in Bali.
