Psychonomic Society

Psychonomic Society

The Psychonomic Society is open to those who are interested in experimental psychology, but mainly its members work with cognitive psychology.  The Psychonomic Society “broke off” from the APA in 1959 due to the APA being focused on clinical psychology.

Also, to be a member of the Psychonomic Society, a member must hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree in their field and have published significant research other than their dissertation.

Implicit Association Test (Project Implicit)

project implcitProject Implicit is a group of assessments in which a person is given choices to compare from about a person’s race, sex, identity, religious or other possible biases.  This social psychology assessment basically tries to combine a mental strength of a person’s thoughts with pictures they may see of a person who may fit that profile in order to establish how much of a bias exists.  For instance; with the sex test, you would be expected to see pictures of females and males, for race, one race versus another or more.

While taking this group of implicit association tests–you can take 15 different ones at the beginning–you may feel that your bias is not “correct.”  That is okay!  Please remember that this is just a tool to use to see what kind of possible biases you may have.  If anything else, it is a nice assessment just to try to see what comes up when you try it and find.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy Self-Help Resources

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) has been proven to help mental health problems.  This website offers CBT self-help information, resources and tools, including therapy worksheets.

CBT helps an individual make sense of their current problems, whilst understanding the influences of past experiences, using a diagrammatic representation or “formulation” which directs the treatment.  This formulation may be highly individualized and more complex for severe problems, but may also include more simple vicious cycles when looking at what is helping to keep the problem going today.

Gendy’s

Gendys is a network for all who have encountered gender identity problems personally, transsexuals, transgendered people and gender dysphoric people of either sex, and for those who provide care, both professional and lay.

It hopes to help transsexuals and intersexed people to see themselves not as victims, but as survivors of their gender identity difficulties.

To this end, the network produces a quarterly journal.

The aim is to provide confidential help and information, including a contact system, including sources of professional counselling.

It also aims to provide support for those who are emotionally close, families, lovers and friends.

The network is to develop a forum for debate and a dialogue between the client group and carers, so that understanding and standards can be improved. It will endeavour to provide information, provoke discussion, thought and understanding, and to help give a fair impression of some of the difficulties often encountered and how they may be dealt with.

Traumatic Brain Injury Guide E-Book

Nearly all of the survivors of a traumatic head injury and their families with whom I have worked have had one complaint: There is nothing written that explains head injury in clear, easy to understand language. Most say the available material is too medical or too difficult to read. The goal of this online book is to better prepare the head injured person and family for the long road ahead.
