Climate, topography, social, economic, and political forces all played a part in shaping the societies of the Caribbean. Likewise, psychology as a field has been shaped and molded by the unique historical contexts of the Caribbean cultures into which it was sewn. Utilizing a case studies approach, this chapter traces the development and role of psychology in three distinct Caribbean societies: Jamaica, Cuba, and Barbados. Important events and institutions, as well as the contributions of key persons are noted.
