A positive response to the crisis of credibility in psychotherapy research

Date & time

4–5pm 28 June 2016


PSYC G8, Psychology Building 39


James C Coyne, Professor of Health Psychology at University Medical Center, Groningen, the Netherlands

The Open Science Collaboration: Psychology (OSC) showed that the evidence for many claims in psychology is exaggerated. But that project attempted replication of only personality and social psychology studies, which use very different methodologies than most studies cited as evidence in clinical psychology.

This talk emphasizes the clinical psychology has its own crisis of trustworthiness with different issues and greater implications for patient care and social policy. However, rather than dwelling on what is wrong, the talk will emphasize the strategies and practical steps the next generation of students and investigators can implement to stay upbeat and change the culture of clinical psychology research and clean up mess they have inherited.
