Do you have any behaviorism and cognitive psychology? Those would be interesting when people are free will vs determininsm debates. :geek:

:oops: ahhh thanks :flowers: . I have lost a lot of free articles I had stored on RDF and either could not find or did not have the heart to troll through the wreckage to recover. This time I learnt my lesson and will store them all in one place!!

Oh and Fallible, and anyone else for that matter, if you come across anything please post.

What in particular were you looking for? I have an article I wrote on the history of behaviorism that I'm going to start a thread for soon, but is there anything in particular you wanted to know with regards to the free will debate?

(I was involved in a very long - 6 parts - thread on RDF about free will...)

EDIT: Oh shit, sorry forgot to say nice collection, Lazar! I knew we kept you around for something.

Nothing in particular for now. I'll make sure to let you know though. :ask:

I fixed the link for you - you added in a paragraph break, which messed up the url tags.

I'll move them into your first post now.

What is missing here is some links showing the unreliability of the human brain. Would be great to have a few links handy for debunking woo.

Did you have any particular myths or anything specifically you wanted information on, Onkel? The unreliability of the human brain is basically the entire field of psychology and neuroscience... ;)

EDIT: Also, I moved your post here to the "Commentary" thread. The Resources thread is just for links to psych resources - it's much cleaner this way and it makes things easier to find.

Ok, I admit, I should have been a bit more specific. I'm mainly interested on anything on autosuggestion and alleged supernatural experiences. I remember one study for instance where test subjects were manipulated into "remembering" a certain event in their childhood, although it never actually happened. They ended up embellishing the story with details and remained convinced it was real. Then there are various studies on what happens in the human brain during religious or out of body experiences. Just anything that questions the reliability of personal experience as evidence.

Ah well my links will not help much. Check out forensic (or legal or whatever) psychology. They have a lot on validity of eye witness testimony, and the sort of stuff you are talking about from a non-spiritual point of view.

Try mood gym for a good intro into CBT. Note that this is not a substitute for professional help but it will give you an idea what to expect.

Padesky is the leading researcher in this field. Her website with LOTS of good resources can be found
here

Authentic happiness (horrible name I know) has some decent resources that I have used on occasion. I have also taken many of the questionnaires and used them in research before and they are OK for certain things. In addition they sometimes run free trials on various well-being improvement techniques with results showing many of them can be reasonable effective and easily done at home.

Also try the following books:

Change your thinking and

Learned optimism

The APA locatoris good for finding a psychologist and the APA site itself has some good resources such as here and here.

Also try the following books:

Learned optimism

Evidence of CBTs effectiveness (care of Mr. Samsa)

Here's a review of some metanalyses of CBT

Drugs and therapy more effective than just drugs by themselves

CBT more effective than sleeping pills

There are some more links to research on the Wiki page: CBT

As for evidence for behavioral therapy in general, well we have a couple of journals, the main ones being: Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior (for the underpinning science of behavior) and Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis (for how those principles are used in applied settings).

Thanks lazar. Completed the moodgym (over four 9-hour nights), didn't honestly find it any more for effective than standard CBT (Aalready done that). Still, helpfull, as are the other links.
