3. Asliturk, Ersin. "Psychology and Kurdish Question: Scientism and Psychologization of the Political" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISPP 34th Annual Scientific Meeting, Bilgi University, Istanbul, Turkey, <Not Available>. 2018-07-21 <>
Publication Type: Paper (prepared oral presentation)
Abstract: Kurdish question has been the most painful political problem of Turkey and has claimed almost forty thousand lives in about 25 years. Despite the severity of the issue, academic psychologists in Turkey have not been actively interested in this political question. Reasons for this might be also political as psychologists are not free from the state discourses and hegemonic ideologies that produce a particular and widespread understanding of Kurdish question as a military issue of interior security. Mainstream psychologists tend to believe, along the line of mainstream politics, that Kurdish people have not particularly been oppressed or disadvantaged in the history of Republic of Turkey. Another reason for the shyness of researchers is the belief that science should be free from politics and politization of psychological knowledge would shadow the impartiality and objectivity of psychological knowledge. Hence the most precious way of reaching the most objective knowledge goes through scientific methods. Ironically, when academic psychologists apply their insights to this question, they psychologize the question along their commonsense beliefs, ignore the importance of the political nature of such a historical question, hence they produce more ideology than scientific reasoning. In this presentation, the impact of scientistic attitudes in psychology on perception of political issues and the problem of psychologization of the political will be addressed with a reference to scientific status of psychology in world, rhetoric of science, and sociology and politics of psychological knowledge in Turkey. Potential solutions will be discussed within the framework of emerging psychopolitical concepts.

Abstract: This investigation measures the effect of several psychological constructs on Black students’ satisfaction with college. Specifically, we probed the influence of sense of belonging, self-esteem, and academic self-efficacy on Black student college satisfaction. We found that each of these psychological constructs was positively related to their satisfaction with college. Results from this study affirm previous research asserting that these psychological factors are positively associated with desirable academic outcomes. This study extends the list of positive outcomes from those constructs beyond academic performance to satisfaction with college with a specific focus on Black collegians. This represents a significant extension of research on these constructs since previous studies have largely relied on predominantly White samples. The present investigation contributes to a growing body of transdisciplinary work dedicated to understanding the racialized educational experiences of Black students with the intent of empowering students and addressing racial oppression and marginalization in higher education.

Abstract: The historical, political, cultural, economic, and societal contexts interconnect with one another in creating the identity of psychology. Understanding these contexts and critically looking at psychology from a more diversified position, researchers have found the biases and norms that it has consciously or unconsciously perpetuated (Duran, Firehammer, & Gonzalez, 2008). This demonstrates a level of inadequacy by which it rejects or dismisses the reality of any oppressed individual and/or group. In order to better address the needs of these individuals it is necessary to understand how liberation psychology concepts can be applied into bringing about change for the diverse individuals in treatment. It is essential that psychology be developed by the unique needs of the clients. To attempt to superimpose and rigidify a society’s or individuals’ cultural and historical reality to fit into the construct of another defeats the purpose of psychology, whose ultimate goal should be in helping (Burton & Kagan, 2005). The realities of those in Latin America as well as Latinos living within different countries and societies varies greatly and should not be generalized for the sake of “universal” psychological constants. One of the tenants of liberation psychology is that psychology does not exist in a vacuum and that in its attempt to be solely scientific alienates the realities of those it studies (Duran et al., 2008). In order to more adequately address the psychological needs and problems facing the Latino community there needs to be a greater questioning to the psychological status quo to bring about a change. In relation to challenging the status quo, it is important to remember the act of merely placing ourselves in one’s perspective is not always enough. There is a need to involve the clients’ needs so that transformation can occur in a way that adds to the psychological knowledge and constructs of reality (Montero, 2007). By integrating the many contexts that formulate a community and an individual it will help create the possibility for interdisciplinary collaboration. Through collaborating and integrating psychological knowledge it creates new paradigms based on serving the needs of the community and the individuals within it.
