≪Organizer Abstract≫
Psychology education and training (PET) has become a major area of focus, with increasing attention to internationalizing the psychology curriculum as a critical strategy to advance a global psychology. However, the literature on this topic has emerged primarily from the traditional centres of the discipline. The relative absence of Majority World psychologists from this discourse ultimately retards the development of a global psychological science and practice that can better serve humanity. In this symposium, psychologists from various parts of the Majority World (Africa, Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, and Southeast Asia) broaden the discourse and bring new perspectives to internationalizing the curriculum with presentations on historical and contemporary issues, developments, and models. With an historically-grounded focus and an emphasis on balancing a culturally-relevant approach, regional harmonization, and global needs, the presentations complement those emerging from the Euro-American contexts and can help advance a truly negotiated framework of international PET.
