Personal values seem indistinguishable when kept at an oppressed state. The point made by Dr. Ochocka at the 2011 CU-EXPO in Canada alluded to the importance of global involvement in relation to global social justice issues. I believe these points are very important when considering the personal needs, as well as community needs within a nation. Cultural humility and recognition are topics that are aspects of the sensitive controversy of including subjectivity in areas of science. As mentioned above, these topics of cultural differences allow scientific information and implementation of social policies to differe from eachother. Some may refer this as catering to different needs of communities around the globe. This controversy relays the inclusion of personal experiences and opinions of people within different cultures. Because every individual is different, it is close to impossible for science to predict and measure the quantative and qualitative data they come across.
I believe social justice and community psychology is a science. However, the topic of science in relation to these topics can not be as rigid as other sciences such as medicine and chemistry. In order to invoke social change, we must obtain personal experiences, cultural differences, and global involvement. As the video, "The Genesis of Community Psychology at Curry College" shows, many human rights groups (ie. domestic violence, child abuse, eating disorders, etc.) are accounted for under the community psychology curriculum.
