Template talk:Psychology sidebar
From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Psychology sidebar template. |
Given the volume of controversy from autistic advocates over applied behavior analysis, and the breadth of psychology as a general field encompassing many particular schools, I'd question the inclusion of applied behavior analysis in the psychology sidebar. What was the original thinking in including it? Is its inclusion really justified? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 02:50, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
I support the addition of coaching psychology. The article shows that it is an established (though relatively new) field of applied psychology, and I can't think of a good reason to exclude it from this template. Biogeographist (talk) 19:37, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

I suggest that you include the following work under the heading "Lectures complémentaires": Chakkarath, Pradeep (2012). Le rôle des psychologies indigènes dans le développement d'une psychologie culturelle élémentaire (pp. 71-95). Oxford University Press: New York. 2001:171B:C9B1:78C1:882A:EA8C:7E84:D49A (talk) 15:14, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
- Not done. Further reading does not belong in this template. Even if this were an article, works in other languages shouldn't be added. ◢ Ganbaruby! (Say hi!) 15:44, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
Why is the letter Psi here at the top?
I understand, of course, that it's the first letter in the Greek spelling of the word Psychology. But is it used elsewhere to represent Psychology, for example in textbooks? I am not familiar with any psychology textbooks myself.
It was added to this template in 2007: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Psychology_sidebar&diff=103943026&diffmode=source
I cannot find any discussions or explanations for adding it.
- for some anecdotal evidence that I won't be verifying, my university's school of psych uses it. For a few actual examples: in the American Psychological Association symbol, this usage is mentioned in Psi (Greek)#Use as a symbol (although w/o citation), it's used in the symbol for the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council, symbol for the New Zealand Psychologist's Board, symbol for India's National Association of Psychological Science, the German psych society. I googled countries in the languages I can read, and I only came across 2 psychology groups that don't use it (aus psych society and british psych association). If it didn't come up when you searched for things, it may be because most people refer to it as the psychology symbol or trident symbol rather than as psi. Hope this helps! --Xurizuri (talk) 12:40, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Remove Psychometrics from Basic; Keep in Applied
The Psychology sidebar lists Psychometrics in both the Basic and Applied subsections. I would like to suggest Psychometrics be removed from the Basic subsection and kept only in the Applied subsection. Psychometrics is considered a part of Quantitative Psychology, according to the Wikipedia article for Quantitative Psychology. Then, Psychometrics' connection to basic research is already covered by the Quantitative subfield, which is represented already in the Basic subsection. Thoughts by others on this idea?
