Title: Chinese Psychology
Author: Gao, Zhipeng

Abstract: With its ancient cultural traditions, China has rich and unique psychological discourses as part of its philosophy. Unfortunately, these psychological discourses were replaced by Western psychology when China became colonized since the mid- nineteenth century. Attempts at indigenization did not have a concrete impact until the 1980s. In the twentieth century, modern psychology in China experienced a number of ups and downs, mainly under the influence of the central government. Presently, psychology in China is enjoying fast development and attention from both inside and outside the country, although problems remain regarding the issues of indigenization, theoretical and methodological innovation, socially oriented practice, government intervention, and professional regulation.
