Psychology and tourism
Review articleOpen access

AbstractThe diversity of psychological studies of tourism is presented by following divisions or levels of analysis within the discipline of psychology. The review offers a broad canvas of the range of psychology studies rather than detailed analysis of particular elements or features. The analysis of psychology's contribution to tourism proceeds by considering psycho-biological and ergonomic studies, cognition, individual difference approaches, and the work in social psychology as applied to tourism. Select environmental and cross-cultural studies are also reviewed. Future prospects for psychology and tourism are outlined and a particular emphasis on the value of multivariate models of tourist behavior is made.
