Replication Crisis[edit]

I wonder, perhaps in the section on criticism, if there ought not be some discussion of the replication crisis issue in psychology? See some of the recent furor over the special edition of the journal Social Psychology on replication studies (most of the furor appears to be regarding just one of those studies).

Developmental Psychology: The Lifespan is the study of age related changes from conception to death. The major theoretical viewpoints and the latest research addressing physical, cognitive, personality, emotional, social, moral, and career development are reviewed. Childcare, education, discipline, dating, marriage, divorce, illness, elder care, peer relationships, stress, aging, and sexuality are among the issues discussed. This course is recommended for anyone who is interested in increasing their understanding of behavior and its relationship to age. Psychology 2237 satisfies 3 of the 9 semester hours of the required Social and Behavioral Sciences credits needed for the AA/AS degrees and is transferable under the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) as a part of the General Education Core Curriculum. Lifespan development is a required course for several of the AAS degrees and certificates in health sciences and human services.

Linguistic practices with purported psychological benefits[edit]

I am interested in the idea that training ourselves in particular patterns of speech can have positive psychological affects or be utilized in psychotherapy. Such claims are made by E-Prime, Neuro-linguistic_programming, and Loglan, at least. I make no assertions about the validity of these claims, but I would like to tie them together. Would others support the creation of Category:Linguistic practices with purported psychological benefits for these articles? Should particular forms of psychotherapy also be included? Any suggestions for other articles to be so tagged? Sondra.kinsey (talk) 16:08, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

As you may know, any article included in a category must have reliably sourced information in the article relating it to the category. I found that in the E-Prime and NLP articles, but is it in the Loglan article? The same is true for any article related to psychotherapy. The slippery slope is to add this information without suggesting that the concept has any validity and without violating WP:WEIGHT. I also dislike categories with only two or three articles, but that's my bias. I'm not arguing against the category, just that particular attention should be given to the caveats that I've stated.

"Purported claims" seems like a poor basis for organizing a category. Your interest in the idea, along with your disavowal of any assertions about the claims' validity, makes me wonder if this is still POV-pushing, especially after the resistance encountered at Talk:Neuro-linguistic programming#E-Prime. — jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 18:36, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
Linking validated techniques with those of pseudo-science, simply based on editors reporting of their claims seems to be dubious ----Snowded TALK 22:10, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Biological scientist[edit]

 The early part of this article informs us that a psychologist may be a social, behavioural or cognitive psychologist, but some psychologists, i.e. physiological psychologists or psycho-physiologists, might be labelled as biological scientists.Vorbee (talk) 15:52, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
