Edit needed in Resources sectionEdit

I don't know how to edit information in the boxes on the Project's home page. Under Resources, Open Directory (dmoz.org) has closed, so we should either remove it as a resource or link to the archive.

Editorial: Core models and topicsEdit

Wikimedians interest themselves in everything under the sun — and then some. Discussion on "core topics" may, oddly, be a fringe activity, and was popular here a decade ago.

The situation on Wikidata today does resemble the halcyon days of 2006 of the English Wikipedia. The growth is there, and the reliability and stylistic issues are not yet pressing in on the project. Its Berlin conference at the end of October will have five years of achievement to celebrate. Think Wikimania Frankfurt 2005.

Progress must be made, however, on referencing "core facts". This has two parts: replacing "imported from Wikipedia" in referencing by external authorities; and picking out statements, such as dates and family relationships, that must not only be reliable but be seen to be reliable.

In addition, there are many properties on Wikidata lacking a clear data model. An emerging consensus may push to the front key sourcing and biomedical properties as requiring urgent attention. Wikidata's "manual of style" is currently distributed over thousands of discussions. To make it coalesce, work on such a core is needed.

body positivity in fashionEdit

I plan to add a sections on Christian Siriano, the winner of Project Runway, and a fashion disgner. He believes in the bueaty of the body and how he can dress the women to look and feel beautiful. One example includes Leslie Jones, a comedian. Not one disigner would dress her for the Reboot of Ghost busters. When word got out on social media Siriano happily took her in.

Duplicate pages on HypersexualityEdit

There are two pages addressing "hypersexuality." Nymphomaniac redirects to one, Nymphomania redirects to the other. One appears to be a legitimate article, the other is flagged in various ways as being a problem. In my opinion, Hypersexuality should be kept and Hypersexual disorder should be removed completely and the various redirects sorted out accordingly.____

Discussion about article "Race and intelligence"Edit

 You are invited to join the discussion at Talk:Race and intelligence#Requested move 4 March 2020, which is about an article that is within the scope of this WikiProject. Levivich [dubious – discuss] 19:55, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

Childhood chronic illness pageEdit

Hi there, I'm editing the childhood chronic illness page throughout the month of March 2020 as part of the WikiMedicine Project. Right now the page's info box has a photo indicating it is part of the Psychology portal. Since the current page has very short sections mostly about the psychological aspect of childhood chronic illness, this makes sense but I'm thinking of expanding the sections to become a more broad introduction to important topics including epidemiology, management, impacts (educational, developmental, social), and advocacy.

I realize the page hasn't been edited in a while, but does anyone have any thoughts about changing the main photo to something more broad? I'm not sure yet what to replace it with. Open to suggestions! Dsalvarez (talk) 00:25, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

Can we please create a stub article for strange-face illusion ?Edit

Can we please create a stub article for strange-face illusion

aka strange face illusion aka Strange-Face-in-the-Mirror Illusion

This seems to be well attested. Has been mentioned in popular sources and academic journals -

Draft article for Developmental NeuropsychologyEdit

Hi WikiProject folks. Could someone with knowledge of the topic please comment on whether Draft:Developmental Neuropsychology (field) is factually correct and unbiased? It would be much appreciated, since I am not in a position to judge this. Cheers, 1292simon (talk) 11:46, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

Featured article review for Attachment theoryEdit

I have nominated Attachment theory for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria.

The instructions for the review process are here. -- Beland (talk) 00:27, 26 March 2020 (UTC)

John_B._Watson needs copyeditEdit

Can people please fix John_B._Watson (American psychologist who established the psychological school of behaviorism.)

Article currently says

he described the relationship between brain myelination and learning ability in rats at different ages.
Watson showed that the degree of myelination was largely related to wand learning.

That text has been in the article for close to ten years now.

It apparently originally read

Watson showed that the degree of myelinization was largely unrelated to learning ability.

[ https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=John_B._Watson&oldid=334490993#Dissertation_on_animal_behavior ]

I don't know what it should say, and so don't want to mess with it myself.

Could someone please make this read correctly?

Thanks -- 2804:14D:5C59:8833:0:0:0:1000 (talk) 22:34, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

Noticeboard discussion on reliability of Areo magazine, The Crimson White, and The Post MillennialEdit

There is a noticeboard discussion on the reliability of Areo magazine, The Crimson White, and The Post Millennial for the Bo Winegard article. If you are interested, please participate at Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard § Sources for Bo Winegard. — Newslinger talk 03:30, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Can you do an AfC review?Edit

If you can conduct an AfC (Articles for Creation) review of the draft article below, that would be awesome. :0)

Draft:M21-1 Adjudication Procedures Manual

I would have just published the article, since I am not a new editor. But I had inadvertently submitted the article for AfC review in 2018 (it was not accepted), therefore I thought it only proper to resubmit for AfC review.

While I believe the article meets notability criteria, it is not a long article.

Note: If you have not conducted an AfC review before, please read how to get involved and the reviewing instructions and then, if you believe you meet the criteria, add your name to the list of AfC participants. Make sure to use the AfC Helper Script (to install the script go to your user preferences and check the checkbox at: PreferencesGadgets → Yet Another AFC Helper Script).

Good article review needed for Veterans benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder in the United StatesEdit

I nominated Veterans benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder in the United States for a Good Article Review. WP:PSYCH is an interested WikiProject for the article. If you (anyone reading this) could conduct the GA review, that would be awesome. :0) I nominated it under the Culture, sociology and psychology subtopic. If you have not conducted a good article review before, take a look at the good article reviewer instructions to see what is involved. If you decide to conduct the review (thank you!), please be sure to read Markworthen/Veterans-benefits-GA-nom where I provide some important history/background info about the article, e.g., 2015 SME (subject matter experts) review; 2015 GA nomination feedback; 2019 Peer Review; 2020 Guild of Copy Editors review, etc. Much appreciated   - Mark D Worthen PsyD (talk) (I'm a man—traditional male pronouns are fine.) 16:24, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Is Reparative Therapy of Male Homosexuality a B-class article?Edit

I believe that Reparative Therapy of Male Homosexuality meets this WikiProject's C-class criteria, but not B-class. Two other editors disagree. I am therefore posting this question at the three WikiProjects with interest in the article—the other two are WP:LGBT and WP:BOOK. Please weigh in at Talk:Reparative Therapy of Male Homosexuality#Article rating. Thank you   - Mark D Worthen PsyD (talk) (I'm a man—traditional male pronouns are fine.) 22:25, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

 Y Another topic has superseded this one. In fact it's immediately below! ↓↓   - Mark D Worthen PsyD (talk) (I'm a man—traditional male pronouns are fine.) 18:36, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

RfC opened for Reparative Therapy of Male HomosexualityEdit

Reparative Therapy of Male Homosexuality is within the scope of WP:PSYCH.

  Question: To what extent should this article discuss the scientific consensus on reparative/conversion therapy's potential harms and benefits?

Request for reviewers of Draft:Accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapyEdit

Carrieruggieri is looking for reviewers for her WP:AFC submission at Draft:Accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy, about the psychotherapy AEDP. The article was nominated for deletion in 2017 and the result was to redirect to Diana Fosha, the creator of the psychotherapy. (See the deletion discussion for details and the draft talk page for further details.) Carrieruggieri has since rewritten the article and is looking to have it reviewed and reinstated. Perhaps Markworthen and other editors could take a look at Draft:Accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy and make any necessary revisions if you think that it should be reinstated to article space. I am generally in favor of covering AEDP in Wikipedia, but I think editors other than me should evaluate the article. Thanks, Biogeographist (talk) 16:08, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I'm still looking for help! Thank you in advance. Carrie Carrieruggieri (talk) 16:38, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Psychology portalEdit

Portal:Psychology had not been updated with new content for quite some time, so I have expanded it. A detailed summary of updates that were performed exists at Portal talk:Psychology § Portal updates. Feel free to post comments about the portal there, if desired.

Bicameralism (psychology)Edit

Just a notice that this is an article needing a lot of work, especially in relation to sourcing. Not helping is that Julian Jaynes' ideas have not been seriously discussed by mainstream psychologists, and touch other fields; it's more part of popular culture. Thanks, —PaleoNeonate – 05:53, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

It’s worth noting that Jaynes’ work *has* been influential in cognitive science — Dennett is deeply indebted to him, for example. Hölderlin2019 (talk) 04:46, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
I have read Richard Dawkins write not unfavourably about the idea, albeit briefly and among others, in some discussion of the evolution of religion. GPinkerton (talk) 01:50, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Verbal Behavior major rewriteEdit

I don't know enough to see if this is sensible, but it's clearly major.[1] @DevilTrombone: I've brought this here because you've already been reverted once and a quick glance at some of the edits have left me wondering about them. Doug Weller talk 17:31, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

what exactly is your concern? --DevilTrombone (talk) 17:59, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

Draft:Mother-Infant Bonding DisordersEdit

Can anyone experienced evaluate this? I'm a little suspicious that it is WP:OR/WP:SYN especially because the titles of the references don't have much to do with "bonding disorders". Thanks! Calliopejen1 (talk) 18:13, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

@Calliopejen1: I've taken a look. Thanks! - MapleSoy (talk) 02:27, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Marked for deletion but not deletedEdit

I'm not sure what the status is with Maladaptive daydreaming which was/is marked for deletion. I'm cross-posting this to Psychiatry also for a decision. Amousey (they/them pronouns) (talk) 23:03, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
