Obviously, it's kind of a broad topic, and you'll have to narrow it
down. As a result, it's a bit difficult to know what you're after.
However I'll take a stab at it: assuming you are interested in
specifically anthropological approaches to psychological issues, you
could look at

White, Geoffrey & John Kirkpatrick Eds.
(1985) _Person Self & Experience: Exploring Pacific Ethnopsychologies.
Berkeley: U of California Press

Robert Levy has also written psychologicaly oriented ethnography (e.g.
_Tahitians_, Chicago: U of Chicago Press 1973) and Richard Schweder, a
psychologist at the U of C has explored cross cultural psych. I don't
have refs, but his books should be easy to find.
Hope this helps.
