Role of Psychology in Nation Building: Redefining the Discipline for Bright Future of India
The role of psychology in India for the nation building has always been on the backbench in comparison to other social sciences. The positivistic and individualistic nature of psychology has prevented it to become more relevant to nation. It failed to produce the holistic perspective to catch the important social issues. Few psychologists have worked for population planning, education, industries, hospitals but the role of psychology limit up to the individual concern. In globalising era several problems have posed to the society. People are facing lots of stresses and insecurities. Social change, urbanisation, crowding has created several problems. Indian psychologists have ignored the thrust areas of wide-ranging social issues. They failed to catch the core issues related to hunger, poverty, social discrimination, communal violence, terrorism and recently climate change and global warming. So, there is an urgent need to redefine the discipline and problem-oriented research should be promoted in an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary fashion.
