Nandita Chaudhary: Domination of Western Child Developmental Psychology in CPS System is Wrong

Dr Nandita Chaudhary, Indian expert in Child Development and Family Studies, questions the application by child protective agencies (CPS) of culturally-specific Western theories of developmental psychology to child-raising in other cultures. Dr Chaudhary asks for understanding and respect for other approaches to child-raising in child protection systems everywhere. This was presented at a seminar held in New Delhi, India, on 18 March 2023, on the humanitarian crisis caused by CPS agencies worldwide.
