  • To be manually checked/moved to talk pages:
  • Behavioral health needs expert attention. I have an impression that it is written in a singe POV, also kind of essayish. `'Míkka>t 17:40, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Reparative therapy - This article is becoming highly politicized. We need an expert to define what exactly is permited and what is prohibited.Joshuajohanson 03:42, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Mortido - I recently rescued this from VfD. It concerns a term used in psychoanalysis to describe the vital drive which is opposed to Libido. I am not a psychologist, but as far as my researches went, there is no consensus about how to name this: some authors oppose libido to mortido, some to Destrudo, which has also its article in Wikipedia. I believe a specialist should take a look at these pages and improve them: maybe a merge between destrudo and mortido might be advisable. VladMV ٭ talk 03:37, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • frustration - Page does not contain information so much as a metaphysical message about the meaning of life. LegCircus 03:53, 17 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Kent Norman - is this mainly a vanity page? i'm hesitant to prod or afd this article, because i can't figure if this guy meets the notability for a professor or not. he, User:Klnorman, is the creator and main editor of the article, which is what irks me about it. Sparsefarce 20:44, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Pro-ana This article is kind of a mess right now. It doesn't have any references and I'm not quite sure where to get any. I'm not a psychologist or dietitian and the article could definitely use some information about the pros and cons of pro-ana and links to articles about the subject, so that it can be established who says that pro-ana is dangerous, rather than just "doctors." Elizabeth 22:05, 14 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Personality - this looks like student "cram" notes. It is set out in point form and has no flowing text. The contents are good but it needs a rewrite as prose with a bit more commentary to explain it and contrast the differing views. --CloudSurfer 09:09, 10 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Homosexual panic - The article seems to deal only with a very limited part of the topic. Some of it also sounds very dubious to me. A psychologist should have a look at it. — David Remahl 19:42, 19 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • affection - this is a horribly bad article which reads like a medical textbook. Worst description of affection ever. --[[User:Eequor|ηVenus symbol (blue).gifυωρ]] 04:40, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)
It doesnt appear to make any sense at all -- very odd style. Having read the article, I still have no idea what Psychology of Torture means
  • Lloyd deMause and related articles needs to be updated. Apparently Mr deMause himself responded to some claims on Talk:Lloyd deMause, so his response should be incorporated. Przepla 21:53, 29 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Logorrhoea -- Should have more about the mental illness aspects, and less silly attacks on Postmodernism. Pyrop 18:54, Jul 13, 2004 (UTC)
The stub has now been expanded, but it still needs some information on treatment of the disorder. Joyous 03:58, Jun 22, 2004 (UTC)
  • Psychiatric hospital While there is much to criticise in the treatment of psychiatric patients, this entire article is riddled with criticism. I think the aims of such institutions need to be laid out and then criticisms/controversies discussed later in the article. It needs much NPOV and untangling. I don't feel qualified for that. --bodnotbod 11:31, May 4, 2004 (UTC)

Did some formatting and NPOVing, but still needs lot of work. Stw 13:15, 27 Dec 2003 (UTC)
Feldenkrais method has more links and is more complete since 2003, but still needs references to substatiate claims.
Did NPOV work on Alexander Technique, many references have now been added to that; much improved since 2003 observation.Franis 15:19, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
  • MCS --Trying to alert interested parties about the cluster of pages which I have listed under MCS. The pages are a mixture of psychology and information processing.
Never mind. I found a link: [1]. It appears to be real. 02:43, 3 Nov 2003 (UTC)
  • Co-dependency - We should have more than a stub for this. Pyrop 23:00, Sep 24, 2004 (UTC)
  • History of mental illness -- Ok, needs some major factual rewrites, plus needs another 500 years worth of information. Implies that Islam started around 600 BC(!) rather than 600 AD, and information ends around the middle ages.

Health miscellaneous[edit]

  • To be manually checked, deleted or moved to article's talk page:
  • Human echolocation needs some review and I suspect it lacks NPOV. I am not an expert in this field, but this article seems to present as fact something that I understood to be just a theory. Also it is written and edited by a single, anon, user. Pasd 15:34, 14 Jun 2004 (UTC)
Toned down its introduction a bit and flagged for neutrality and references Profbrumby 18:13, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Fomite - I'm not sure where this is going or what its context is. -FZ 19:52, 23 Dec 2004 (UTC)
It seems grossly okay to me...what bothers you specifically? -- JVinocur 23:07, 16 April 2006 (UTC)
It's fine now- at the time I commented, it wasn't clear whether this was a term in medicine, materials science, or humor studies. It's much improved since.-FZ 20:09, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Sneeze — No references, few medical and anatomical facts, but lots of superstitions. The article has a history of factual disputes, and even in its current form I find much of its content doubtful. Anyone with a knowledge of sneezing can improve this. --PJF (talk) 11:34, 7 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Aortic aneurysm - there are new methods for treatment, should be added, i don't know them but i will try and talk someone into doing it haha. rhyax 06:00, 5 Sep 2004 (UTC) If this is added, attention should also be given to aneurysm of sinus of Valsalva.
  • Universal precautions - quite incomplete in my opinion. I added a list of body fluids to be avoided and several things of the sort, but it needs a lot of work. --Victor 03:01, 5 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment: Eye is getting out-of-hand with the amount of content that is duplicated from its sub-articles. (Pehaps I'll nominate it for this page!) The first two suggestions would be better. Edwardian 07:41, 9 August 2005 (UTC)
  • Psychic surgery uses medical terms inadequately and lacks citations in general JennyLen 11:36, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
