This chapter describes a dialogue that attempts to examine the development of a culturally appropriate psychology in Cambodia. Questions about the incorporation of Western cultural models of psychology into Cambodian practice and how clashes are reconciled were discussed in a collaborative piece of work. Exploratory conversations between Cambodian psychologists and practitioners, and a Western academic formed the basis of this chapter.
