Hi Doc Reason. Welcome to the wiki. I am very happy to follow your efforts. I think the issue of validation of therapies, the establishment of brands of accepted practise etc is one we will wrestle with for some time. I am hoping you will be able to contribute to this debate. My own view is that many of us in our professional practice work out of a personally integrated model See Kiff, J A (2006a), seeking to employ established techniques as tools to use in the service of our clients. There are dangers with this, as there is with inappropriately sticking to narrow evidenced based practice. Some of these tools have still to be operationalised yet and tested. I am interested to see if your contributions make this explicit? Whats your take on this, are you a clinician yourself?
You might find the following information useful when settling in
Even if you are experienced on Wikipedia, I suggest you read our beginners guide, as we do a lot of things differently on the Psychology Wiki.
It is important to understand that the pages of Wikipedia reproduced here are used as placeholders. We expect 2/3rds of them to be substantially editied or rewritten so do feel free to change them markedly to fit the needs of the site.
Tip: you can sign your username on talk pages (like this one) using four tildes ~~~~; this will automatically produce your name, date and time-stamp. Three tildes will just produce your name.

Hi Lifeartist and all. I'm a psychology researcher. I mostly research the use of information processing psychology at work. I also research therapy and coping skills at work. I believe the debate can be very well represented using the wiki system. At least, we are starting off with the idea that there is a debate. Sounds like a good launch pad already.

Adding Sources... Thank you
Thanks very much for adding sources to our articles. If every psychology researcher and student came to our site and added just 5 sources for relevant articles, our project would quickly become an excellent resource. Contributions from people who have knowledge in areas that we personally do not is what makes Wikis such a good way of building a community resource.
