Because telling kids that they can love whoever they want is TOO TERRIFYING AND CONFUSING. But showing them murder, execution, death, frightening images, war, and bullying is just fine.

Not to mention 101 Dalmatians where a crazy woman wanted to SKIN 99 PUPPIES

This is a recent occurrence.,Hollie F. Jackson had a litter of puppies and decided to use them as target practice. She let them bleed out in her front yard.
She calls it ‘taking care of business’ but the rest of us call it murder.
Please please get this attention. She needs to be put in prison.

This is seriously so important and I wish people would care about this as much as I do.
If this doesn’t get attention, nothing is going to happen.
She murdered helpless, starving puppies for fun and posted it on fb like it was something to be proud of.

Fuck that.

Why Ineffective Psychotherapies Appear to Work

ABSTRACT

The past 40 years have generated numerous insights regarding errors in human reasoning. Arguably, clinical practice is the domain of applied psychology in which acknowledging and mitigating these errors is most crucial. We address one such set of errors here, namely, the tendency of some psychologists and other mental health professionals to assume that they can rely on informal clinical observations to infer whether treatments are effective. We delineate four broad, underlying cognitive impediments to accurately evaluating improvement in psychotherapy—naive realism, confirmation bias, illusory causation, and the illusion of control. We then describe 26 causes of spurious therapeutic effectiveness (CSTEs), organized into a taxonomy of three overarching categories: (a) the perception of client change in its actual absence, (b) misinterpretations of actual client change stemming from extratherapeutic factors, and (c) misinterpretations of actual client change stemming from nonspecific treatment factors. These inferential errors can lead clinicians, clients, and researchers to misperceive useless or even harmful psychotherapies as effective. We (a) examine how methodological safeguards help to control for different CSTEs, (b) delineate fruitful directions for research on CSTEs, and (c) consider the implications of CSTEs for everyday clinical practice. An enhanced appreciation of the inferential problems posed by CSTEs may narrow the science–practice gap and foster a heightened appreciation of the need for the methodological safeguards afforded by evidence-based practice.

Oh my god. This looks like the most beautiful publication I have ever seen. Unfortunately my university does not have it on its database yet, so if anyone can gain full access and send me a pdf, I would be eternally grateful!

But basically this seems to attempt to explain why non-empirically supported treatments “work,” aka how clinicians often erroneously attribute client improvement to inert therapies.

Pay attention, non-ESTs.

I put in my public dropbox folder here so others can take a look.

Hero status: confirmed.

You could be an Avenger as far as I’m concerned.

Damn Alex, you have a low bar for what actions you consider to be sufficient enough to grant someone hero status.

That or you underestimate the gravity of providing a Lilienfeld article? All I’m saying is I’ll put in a good word for you with Samuel L. So can you not rain all over my parade, which is for you by the way, as per USUAL Tetyana?!

nightdestroyer could be one, too, since he sent me the article about 0.000072 seconds after you reblogged the post.

Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin.
"Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know."~ Jeremy Knowles
