International engagement can advance psychological science and improve service provision as long as it is done in a manner that is ethical, emancipatory, non-oppressive, affirmative, respectful, and mutually beneficial. In other words, such engagement must be collaborative, or as the joint task force’s report on APA’s Role in International Quality Assurance from the Board of Educational Affairs and the Committee on International Relationships in Psychology puts it, parties engaged in international collaborations must be “learning partners.” Furthermore, international exchanges in psychology have been predominantly along the East-West corridor, with a historical European focus and more recently an East Asian focus. This webinar seeks to expand such focus by highlighting challenges and opportunities in the North-Central-South corridor of the Americas and by offering a critical analysis of various modes of international engagement.
