Avoiding Ethnocentrism

How can an understanding of culture and human development help the behavioral sciences avoid ethnocentrism? In this webinar, presented as a conversation hour at the 2021 biennial meeting of the Society for Research in Child Development, four scholars from around the globe - Botswana, Brazil, Ghana, and Hong Kong - share their views on this topic.
