Psychology Wiki[edit]

Hi! I was wondering if you had heard of the Psychology Wiki. I thought that you might like to check it out. EPM 00:34, 6 March 2007 (UTC) I hadn't and I will move my time across to there after my brief experience of editing Clinical Psychology on wikipedia.--Ziji 07:29, 6 March 2007 (UTC)


I noticed in your peer-review of the clinical psychology article that you made reference to the Tree of Knowledge System by Gregg Henriques. Since your critique their was so well thought out, I would love to hear any critiques of the ToK article on the ToK discussion page, as well. (Of course, making any edits to the article itself would be great also!) Have you read Henriques' ToK papers yet? There are links to both the target article and the Psychology Defined article in the references section. Also, Gregg Henriques has a user page here as well: User: Gregg Henriques.

Feel free to leave a message on my discussion page any time. Have a good one! EPM 14:41, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

I have now added 'Psychology of Monogamy' and 'Nonmonogamy'. The latter makes a number of the other redundant.--Ziji 22:03, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Clinical psychology[edit]

Thanks for your kind comments, nice after all the hassles with that page. I was glad for your energy and breadth of knowledge coming in to it. Feels like a fine line often on Wikipedia between inclusiveness and creativity on the one hand + guidelines, sourcing and organization on the other, as you were encountering also I think. Interesting association I see you've joined incidentally, didn't know about AWWDMBJAWGCAWAIFDSPBATDMTD (for short)! See you around... EverSince 19:19, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Eastern/Middle Eastern influences on Clinical Psychology[edit]

Hi Ziji - the page looks interesting. I'll review it more closely in the next day or two and see if I can add anything of value. Thanks for the tickle. Larry Rosenfeld (talk) 22:05, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Hi Ziji - Nice article idea! I applaud your efforts and achievement!
I added Fromm and Linehan bullets and expanded the Kabat-Zinn entry. I did some other tidying up -- hope I didn't change anything that you wouldn't have wanted me to -- if so, let me know and I'll self-revert or, of course, feel free to revert anything I wrote.
Two questions: (1) Should the clinicians be alphatized or put in chronological order or is there some other basis for the numbering scheme currently used? (2) Should I add contemporary clinicians -- such as Jack Kornfield and Mark Epstein -- who are better known as Buddhists than as clinicians?
Also, just FWIW, I think WP policy recommends that the initial letters of non-first words of subheadings should be lowercased. (Thus, for instance, "Historical Clinical Psychologists" would become "Historical clinical psychologists.")
Sooo, let me know if you'd like me to pursue any of the above or something and I'd be happy to do so as time allows. Best wishes, Larry Rosenfeld (talk) 04:58, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
Hi Larry - great work yourself. All your additions excellent - more if you have time. Change sub heads as suggested. I think an approximate chronological order is the way but currently no basis for numbering. Please define as you think best. Possibilities of this page have merit.--Ziji 06:18, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
Definitely interesting! Sometime soon I hope to sit back and read through the article more slowly. FWIW, I particularly like your adding a new section on influential writers -- well done!
I've gone ahead and added the identified persons' birth and death years and then reordered accordingly. Honestly, I'm not sure it's the best way to go. Perhaps alphabetical might be better? If you'd like me to change this back to the way it was, etc., just let me know and I'll be happy to do so. I'll also add in Kornfield and Epstein shortly. Lastly, I tend to be obsessive (a clinical coworker calls me Adrian Monk) about consistency so I went ahead and wordsmithed some bibliographic material, etc. If any of these superfluous edits on my part cause you the least annoyance, please revert them and forgive me. Thanks!
I applaud your effort, interests and pursuits. With metta, Larry Rosenfeld (talk) 03:51, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
Larry, likewise great merit in all your changes and interest in detail aka Monk - much appreciated as I am dionysian. Particularly valuable is your wordsmithing. I think you may be right about alphabetical but I put myself in feet of a newcomer and think the dates are anchors. I will get on to adding Patanjali as the master of yoga and am wanting to find a prominant clinician influenced by Rumi. Any thoughts much appreciated.Shall we move this discussion to Talk:Clinical Psychology - Eastern & Middle Eastern Influences--Ziji 06:05, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Can I interest you in...[edit] the truly remarkable, well cited (international, and not always totally DSM dependent, for a change) "Ziji treatment" to a few more psych articles when you have finished with Fictional portrayals of psychopaths‎?

--Zeraeph 12:07, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

PS. And if you like those, here is a REALLY tricky one for dessert Cassandra phenomenon and/or Cassandra syndrome. Is it a real condition in psychology with real WP:RS or is it just a fictional one, and, if the latter, does it have WP:RS for that instead? And if so what? And what is it actually called? Or does it just need one last, final AFD in all manifestations? --Zeraeph 12:20, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
You put a big smile on my face this morning. My favourite tag is ActiveDiscuss is unlikley to appear on the narcissism pages, having done a huge job putting one up on my own site. BUT psychopathy, there you have an interest, expecially if people are wasting their time arguing about whacking it rather than fixing it--Ziji 21:51, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
You DESERVE big smile on face after your work on Fictional portrayals of psychopaths‎.
I hope this smile will not turn to frown if I try to use your Narcissism page as a "crib sheet"? Don't worry, i never plagiarise, even if I have to re-word in the manner of Yoda to avoid it! --Zeraeph 00:14, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
I'm still smiling that you took the trouble to find that page and worthy of Yoda. I would be very happy if you used it to work Julia Kristeva into the Wikarticle - although at times hard to read her thinking about abjection is crucial to the subject of narcissism and its extreme in psychopathy. BTW I have begun to levitate the psychopathy page and want to do more to Ziji it. Reads like a DSM IV promo in places--Ziji 01:41, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Hidden messages / Intrapersonal communication[edit]

Hello Ziji,

I reverted your additions of links to Intrapersonal communication to Hidden message and Template:Hidden messages. If I understand your reasons for linking, this article is related to messages hidden within one's own mind. The article and template, however, are about messages hidden intentionally in books, movies, images, music, etc. Perhaps Intrapersonal communication belongs in the See also sections of the article and/or template? In the latter case, though, I'd like to keep the template as short as possible, to avoid taking up too much space in the articles it is transcluded in. Λυδαcιτγ 20:13, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Hi Audacity You understand correctly. I think the link to Unconscious mind in See Also and Cryptography in Numeric covers it. The intrapersonal link was extravagant. At the time I was workng away on the Unconscious mind article and it just bubbled along into the template as an example of a covert internal messaging system, which at an extreme might be Dissociative identity disorder.--Ziji 22:03, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Nathaniel Branden Libel[edit]

Hi Ziji, Thanks for the offer to help. It is a silly thing, and I shouldn't have let myself be drawn into an edit war much less violate the 3rr rule. The college is actually a fairly good one. A small college and one of the first to offer a PhD in psychology in the US - at least privately. Like most small colleges they are forced to either affiliate with a large university to qualify for regional accreditation which means they give up independence, or apply for state approval. There are twelve schools in California that chose to stay independent and they are "approved" by the state rather than "accredited" by the Western Regional association. The article is partially correct in saying that it is "unaccredited" but to say that with no explanation, no context, leaves a reader with a suspicion that the school is a diploma mill and that is where I think it is a case of implicit libel. Anyway, I emailed the admin that blocked my account and explained everything and he unblocked me. It helped when I explained that some of the edit warring and one of the people who had requested that he block me was an illegal sock-puppet. I'll post a request for a ruling on the Biography of Living Person's Noticeboard. It's too bad because Branden is an extraordinary psychologist. Again, thanks for the offer of help and Best Wishes, Steve 00:02, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

I'm going to take a break from editing for a while and go back to working on my book. I deleted all of the pages from my watchlist. I may make a change here or there, but I won't be keeping up with the 65 or so pages that I used to follow. You mentioned earlier that you were reading about Branden and Rand. Rand is, of course, about philosophy and Branden used to be, years ago. But for the last 3 decades or so he has been doing almost nothing by psychology. The article on Rand in Wikipedia is fairly good. The article on Branden is awful - so bad I have never tried to improve it beyond a sentence or two and trying to keep out libel. It has almost nothing about his work in therapy: The lifetime achievement award for his development of individual therapy in a group setting, his invention of sentence stems that are such an awesome technique, the detailed, and the therapeutic descriptions of self-esteem's sources - for just a few. If you haven't read any of his stuff, I'd suggest The Psychology of Self-Esteem (get the latest edition) - the first half is philosophy of psychology and there is some good material specifically addressed to therapists in the second half. Then take a look at The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem. Anyone that wants to do effective positive psychology should read that. Best wishes, Steve 02:17, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

If you started with his stems back in 1983, then you are an old hand and didn't need my recommendations.  :-)

My book, in an abstract nut-shell, is about the intersection of human nature and our culture; about what the primary, driving forces are in the interactions between people and the culture. In a more descriptive, popular sort of explanation, it is "Why are things going wrong? A discussion of broken cultural structures." Steve 21:00, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

This was erased by an editor. I hope you have read it[edit]

Hero, yes that is the sad fact. That is what the 'therapy' is. That is what many are trying to inform the public about. A theory gone haywire. Now if there were some proof that it worked but there is not. But there is a lot of money in it. See AT therapists have accees to funds that traditionals dont. See it is all under the radar because of HIPPA laws and because these are minors and minors who do not have parents. Children have died from this 'therapy'. Horrible deaths. Crying for help and being smothered to death as they cry for help from their new 'mother'. See the proponents of this are trying to obfuscate things by saying 'it is not defined' etc. You can look at the training manuals and it shows what happens. Relentless confrontation and physical restraint. Again it is the money. The 'therapists' sell the parents that if their kid does not get this 'therapy' they will become Jeffrey Dahmer. I believe that a couple of the editors here are AT therapists. An average AT therapist makes about 100k per year part time. Now a person with a 'clinic' can make 500k per year and its mostly from taxpayer dollars. At therapists encourage caging kids, social isolation, diets of only peanut butter, endless chores, affection on demand, blind obedience. How this can be happening in our modern age, in a developed country like the US, mostly on taxpayers money is astonishing. And nobody knows how damaged this kids are and how they will behave as adults. When caught many have been put in jail and at least convicted and had their licenses taken away. But they rarely are caught because the only witness is a 'bad', 'demonic', 'lying' kid with no mother to protect him. No this is not a useful therapy. And a layperson has common sense. Torture is wrong. These procedures would not be allowed on murder convicts or prisoner of war. The people making the money are very good salespeople. They have convinced many administrators that this therapy is good. And that is why this article is so important. This therapy has no evidence of effectiveness. I hope you can help get the truth out. FatherTree 23:17, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Indeed I did, just a few moments after you posted it there.-- Ziji  (talk)  11:14, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
And it was erased quickly. I really believe that wiki is being used by these therapists to cover up what goes on in their therapy and to promote it. FatherTree 11:16, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Within I think five minutes, probably because the person was sick of feeling pursued and harrassed on his user page, where the discussion ought to occur on the relevant attachment therapy talk. I wish you well in uncovering the truth.-- Ziji  (talk)  11:27, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
I was posting a reply to you. And you put in on his user page. If it belonged on the talk page it could have been moved there. I did not understand why you were not putting the comments on the article talk page but I was not going to bring it up. I think the appropriate thing to do is to move and tell people and not erase. I was told that we do not own our talk pages. Well thanks for your good wishes. I think I have uncovered the truth it is just getting it out to the public that is difficult and getting the false advertizement stopped. Anyhow you have lectured me a little on that my comment was in the wrong place. Can, should I move it to the article talk page? Thanks FatherTree 11:48, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Attachment therapy[edit]

Sorry, Ziji; being a bit dim, but I didn't quite understand all of your helpful remarks on adjudication at the RfC. Lack of what? Fainites 06:52, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi Fainites - I share being a bit dim with this one - I'm not sure what you are asking but I think it is about the lack of agreement by the parties to what constitutes each of their rights and responsibilities in managing the issues as they have arisen in the articles. As well, how to name and manage conflicts of interest in a way that abides by those same rights and obligations. It seems to me that these are owed to every party to the conflict and yet they are not acknowledged nor administered by the parties themselves, so there is a sense of a lack of authority, not a personal authority but a collective one, which some might look to arbitration to provide. Does that answer your 'lack of what?' I will copy this to your talk page so that you get a new message alert.--Ziji Baby tao.jpg (talk) 07:06, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks Ziji. All the arguments have been gone over, over and over and over again on various talkpages with no result and no common understanding of the interpretation or applicability of Wiki policies. If all parties agree mediation and there is an experienced mediator it might help, but that's looking increasingly unlikely at the moment. One 'side' is not agreeing to mediation. ArbCom looms.Fainites 12:14, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

That is my understaning also, and darkly fascinating it is to the degree that deep democracy has not arisen with wiki policies to support it and people of good heart in a field where that is a necessity.--Ziji Baby tao.jpg (talk email) 20:39, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps it's the anonymity that does it. Fainites 22:14, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Having just come from entering the war by offering what I foolishly thought a non-offensive tool to calm the latest eruption over SPA tags, observing your entry into the same moment and then reading how both could have been used as weapons for further attacks - I think that anonymity is not necessary nor sufficient to explain the struggle for mutual respect. Each of the participants practice compassion and respect in the fields they now represent at war and most of them have identified themselves, have been or will be outed in the process. I now think that 3 most precious jewels - knowledge, self esteem and time to think, are threatenned by the medium or perceived as under threat by the internet itself. That could be a personal edge, a secondary group process (see Process Oriented Psychology and an emergent issue, not spoken at the level of hand to hand combat. Perhaps if given a voice in the primary process, it might sound something like, 'strike back first since I may not have time to defend myself in the melee' (small diamond/group combat, pun intended).--Ziji Baby tao.jpg (talk email) 03:58, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
Gosh! Sounds a bit deep. All I was wondering was whether on Wiki, the anonymity allows people to behave in ways they would not allow themselves to in their 'community'. I suppose 'getting your retaliation in first' is usually primarily motivated by fear/perceived threat. Fainites 09:09, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi Ziji. Would you mind explaining the basis on which you consider youself an involved editor for the purposes of mediation? I thought you just made some comments at the RfC. Or are you an earlier involved editor who now has a different name or have I missed you on related pages? I only ask because allegations of meatpuppetry or conspiracy are bound to arise.Fainites 06:35, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

I've just thought you might consider the above unfriendly! It wasn't meant to be. Fainites 08:03, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

You didn't miss me earlier. I only involved myself at the same time as I saw the SPA tag's war start. I remain outside the story and may well remove myself from as an involved party on the RfM.--Ziji Baby tao.jpg (talk email) 08:17, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

As you can see, the mediators intervened on those ridiculous tags. If you did want to intervene on this whole thing, you would really have to read all the talkpages of John Bowlby, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Attachment Disorder, Attachment Therapy, Candace Newmaker, Advcocates for Children in Therapy, just to get a handle on everything. That's a tall order for any editor really. Fainites 09:09, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

And that would be in too deep for me and still I don't think I would get a handle on it, there is so much turbulence in the process--Ziji Baby tao.jpg (talk email) 11:59, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
Very wise. Fainites 13:06, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Hey, could you help me with this?[edit]

I recently split the article, "Fictional portrayals of psychopaths" into two smaller articles: "Fictional portrayals of psychopaths in film" and "Fictional portrayals of psychopaths in literature". Can you help with a decent introduction and citations for the second article? Thanks. --Mangled Nervous System 03:12, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

I like your decision to split and will be happy to help.

Urgently need citations for "Fictional portrayals of psychopaths in literature" article[edit]

I urgently need your help putting in appropriate citations for the "Fictional portrayals of psychopaths in literature" article, since you did such a great job with overhauling the original "Fictional portrayals of psychopaths" article before I split it. Alas, I am being accused of "original research" for my recent additions to the "literature" article.

Most of my information for the "invention" of the psychopath in Dante, Chaucer, Marlowe, and Shakespeare comes from the early chapters in Harold Bloom's book, The Western Canon: The Books and the School of the Ages, as well as a general understanding of the fourteenth century in Europe as the turning point away from chivalric ideals under agrarian feudalism and medieval Christendom and toward the development of Renaissance humanism and secular themes and ideals in a more mobile mercantile economy and an increasingly cosmopolitan culture.

Bloom refers to characters like Chaucer's Pardoner, Marlowe's Barabas, and Shakespeare's Iago and Edmund as "nihilists" or "Machiavels" (implying a continuity with Dostoyevsky's Svidrigailov and Stavrogin as well as an ideological connection with Machiavelli, an important moral and civic philosopher of Renaissance humanism), but his use of these terms makes them virtually synonymous with "psychopathic characters" in my opinion. Since the scientific apparatus of modern psychiatric diagnoses are a product of the Enlightenment, and the Enlightenment finds its early modern origins in Renaissance humanism.

Since you were able to effectively use Adorno and the Culture Industry to supply a scholarly support for a discussion of "Fictional portrayals of psychopaths in film", I am wondering if you can help me manage something similar for the "Literature" article, as well. Appropriate references to Foucault's Madness and Civilization and The Order of Things might help. Thanks. --Mangled Nervous System 19:55, 19 July 2007 (UTC)


Thanks for your recent contributions to "Fictional portrayals of psychopaths in literature". I just finished editing them a bit so they fit in better with the rest of the article. --Mangled Nervous System 20:22, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

move of Clinical Psychology - Eastern & Middle Eastern Influences ?[edit]

Hi Ziji -

We haven't talked in a while. I hope you are doing well.

I'm contacting you now simply because, surfing around WP, I jumped to your article Clinical Psychology - Eastern & Middle Eastern Influences and was surprised to see that it appears to have been unilaterally renamed Philosophy and clinical psychology. My main concern about this change regards your reaction to it. Are you okay with this change? If not, I'll try to re-kindle a thread related to the change at Talk:Philosophy_and_clinical_psychology#Name_change. If you are okay with the change, then simply know I wish you much happiness.

With metta, Larry Rosenfeld (talk) 21:43, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi Larry I'm not entirely happy with it and asked the editor concerned for his reasoning, which was provided and I understand it BUT it alters the intended practical applications from a clinical perspective reaether than a philosophical direction and is thus a poorer for the tile change. I didn't know where to go with it but to mount a co0nvincing argument, which at the time I was not inclined to and so have let it lapse on my to do list. What was your response to the change? --Ziji Baby tao.jpg (talk email) 11:21, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi Ziji - I posted a query under Talk:Philosophy_and_clinical_psychology#Name_change. Please correct there any misstatements I might have made. Thanks, Larry Rosenfeld (talk) 15:28, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
Hi Larry - true, clear and expresses my concerns exactly. Thank you.--Ziji Baby tao.jpg (talk email) 22:12, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
Hi Ziji - I think we've made some good progress towards a mutually agreeable solution. Viriditas brings up the very interesting point though that "influences" might be too broad a term (vs. "philosophy," which I think we might have found too limiting). I'd be interested in brainstorming with you on the article's talk page about possible alternate titles, if you like. Hope you find this direction positive. Best wishes, Larry Rosenfeld (talk) 05:22, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Complex trauma[edit]

Thanks for the edits and reorganization. I appreciate your leaving in my material and not letting the Cabal of Advocates for Children in Therapy from POV pushing. As a mom of a child adopted from Russia I am disgusted with their smears and slanders PAMom (talk) 00:23, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Attachment theory[edit]

Hi Ziji. I put this one through a peer review a while back. I'm just re-doing the clinical practice section and wanted to add a section on the general use of attachment theory in things like social work, child welfare, nursery care, family law - that sort of thing, rather than just clinical practice. Would you have any thoughts on some good sources for this?Fainites barleyscribs 15:27, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi Fainites. I'll ask my daughter whose doing social work and has an interest in same.--Ziji Baby tao.jpg (talk email) 23:15, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
Hi Fainites. I hope these help: 1.'Using Attchment theory to develop child welfare policy' at google scholar [1] 2. 'Women at the margins' at google scholar [2] 3. in the book charting a new course for feminist psychology the chapter 'Deconstructing attachment theory' [3] 4. I don't have access to this but important review of literature Attachment theory and research: Review of the literature Journal Clinical Social Work Journal Springer Netherlands ISSN 0091-1674 (Print) 1573-3343 (Online) Issue Volume 19, Number 3 / September, 1991 5. 'The Morality of Adoption' at google books [4] 6. Class, care, and welfare reform: reading meanings, talking feelings by Chris Haylett available here [5] 7. Conceptualizing and measuring father involvement at [6] Want more? --Ziji Baby tao.jpg (talk email) 23:29, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
Hey thanks Ziji and daughter! (That feminist one is based on a false premise by the way. Attachment theory is not just a mother thing. Infants can attach to anyone). I don't know about the US or elsewhere but certainly here in the UK, attachment theory would be a standard part of the training for social workers, health visitors, family court judges and reporters and the like.

You're invited to the Canberra WikiMeetup on 20 November 2011[edit]

Hi! We're having a Canberra Wikimeetup on 20 November 2011 at Siren Bar in Gunghalin from 2pm to 4pm. It's mostly just a chance to chat with other local Wikipedians, get a chance to go a different sort of bar (which is reasonably kid friendly, serves real food, and has non-alcholic options), and, if you're interested, learning more about what Wikimedia Australia and local GLAM projects are that happening. We'd love to see you and any Wikipedia/Wikimedia/wiki loving friends you have there. --LauraHale (talk) 07:26, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
