  • The new psychometrics: Comment on Appelbaum et al. (2018).
    • Abstract: This comment attempts to correct misconceptions about psychometric measurement in the American Psychologist article “Journal Article Reporting Standards for Quantitative Research in Psychology” (Appelbaum et al., 2018) by offering an outline of what the author calls the new psychometrics. The new psychometrics argues for replacing “construct validation” with construct-to-measure validation, abandoning “convergent validation” in favor of content validation requiring correspondence of the content of the measure with the content of the construct definition, and restricting the term reliability to mean only the precision of scores from the measure.

  • Intent of reporting standards: Reply to Rossiter (2018).
    • Abstract: In this reply to Rossiter (2018), we note that the goal of developing Journal Article Reporting Standards has been to specify the kinds of information that should be provided to the readers of scientific articles in order to allow maximal understanding of the work being reported—in the case of psychometrics, information that demonstrates the underlying adequacy of the measures used in the research being reported. Although we illustrate some kinds of items that might be utilized to make these demonstrations, the illustrations are not proscriptive. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • A framework for disentangling the hyperbolic truth of neurofeedback:
           Comment on Thibault and Raz (2017).
    • Abstract: In this comment, we propose a theoretical framework for disentangling the potentially multiple elements driving the effects of electroencephalogram (EEG)-neurofeedback (EEG-nf) to clarify the roadmap for research in the field. Three questions are identified: (a) Do EEG-nf effects originate from a placebo effect related to the technological environment of a neurofeedback session' (b) Do EEG-nf effects originate from a nonspecific effect of cognitive brain training during neurofeedback' If so, a cognitive training would be underpinned by the brain activity regulation loop but this training would not be specifically related to the neurophysiological biomarker chosen. (c) Do EEG-nf effects originate from a specific effect of cognitive brain training' If so, the effects of EEG-nf would be explained by the training of the specific neurophysiological biomarker chosen, depending on the pathophysiological mechanism(s) of the disorder. The proposed framework might thus allow to understand to what degree each of these level contribute to the effects of EEG-nf on the brain and behavior in view of the psychosocial variables involved.

  • A consensus framework for neurofeedback research (and the perils of
           unfounded neuroreductionism): Reply to Micoulaud-Franchi and Fovet (2018).
    • Abstract: We were pleased to read the constructive commentary (Micoulaud-Franchi & Fovet, 2018) on our original piece (Thibault & Raz, 2017). In this response, we build on the theoretical framework for studying neurofeedback that the commentators sketch out while pointing out potential caveats to adopting a neuroreductionist approach.

  • Ronald E. Fox (1936–2018).
    • Abstract: Presents an obituary of Ronald E. Fox (1936–2018). Fox was a visionary, trailblazer, and leader in the practice of psychology for over 50 years, renowned for his ability to bring psychologists together to meet society’s most pressing needs. Fox envisioned a broad social role for professional psychology, moving beyond psychotherapy for people with psychological problems to encompass general health, prevention, and well-being. He also had a long history of involvement in the APA. He was always a step or two ahead of us—creating the Practice Directorate, supporting the APA’s reorganization that created the directorate structure, urging all of us to contribute to political action. He was recognized for his contributions with many awards, including the Distinguished Career Contributions to Practice of Psychology Gold Medal Award from the American Psychological Foundation (1994) and the Raymond D. Fowler Award for Outstanding Contributions to APA (2009). (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Henry Gleitman (1925–2015).
    • Abstract: Presents an obituary of Henry Gleitman (1925–2015). Gleitman was an author of major papers in animal learning, memory, theater, and the psychology of language, including one book with Lila Gleitman (Phrase and Paraphrase, 1970). Gleitman was among the very best teachers in the history of psychology. He taught introductory psychology about 100 times, engaging the minds of some 30,000 students, each exposed to his enlightening, expansive, and entertaining synthesis of psychology. Gleitman came to the University of Pennsylvania in 1964 as Professor and Chair of Psychology. Over a 5-year period, he shaped the department into a first-rate teaching center for both undergraduate and graduate students, and demonstrated the compatibility and mutually reinforcing values of teaching and research. The University of Pennsylvania was uniquely blessed to count him among its faculty for 50 years (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Leon J. Kamin (1927–2017).
    • Abstract: Presents an obituary of Leon J. Kamin (1927–2017), former chair of the Psychology Department at Northeastern University. Over the course of his career, Kamin demonstrated a rare combination of skills as a researcher, scholar, and administrator. Early in his career, Kamin developed an influential line of research on conditioning. In fact, a conditioning effect, the Kamin (blocking) effect, is named after him. Later in his career, he became interested in the heritability of intelligence, leading to his debunking of Cyril Burt’s famous twin studies and the publication of his extremely influential book The Science and Politics of IQ (1974). Kamin also enjoyed great success as an administrator, serving as chair in each of the departments in which he worked. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Joseph White (1932–2017).
    • Abstract: Presents an obituary of Joseph White (1932–2017), often called “the godfather of Black psychology.” During a distinguished 56-year career, White held many professional roles, perhaps none more profound than that of mentor. Additionally, White served as a (supervising) psychologist to five hospitals and three clinical practices. He served as chairman of the California State Psychology Licensing Board for 3 years. He was also a member of the Board of Trustees of The Menninger Foundation in Houston, Texas, and held the title of professor emeritus of psychology and psychiatry at the University of California, Irvine, where he spent most of his career as a professor and director of ethnic studies and cross-cultural programs. White personified a socially engaged psychologist. He continually promoted the goals of multiculturalism and social justice through his practice and scholarship. The author or coauthor of numerous articles and books, he was a founder of the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi) and a pioneer in the field of Black psychology.

  • Wilse Bernard (Bernie) Webb (1920–2018).
    • Abstract: Presents an obituary of Wilse Bernard (Bernie) Webb (1920-2018). Webb was an effective researcher and administrator but also an overall colorful personality. His evolving research career was highlighted by work on learning mechanisms and studies of aircraft accidents. He became most widely known for his important early work on biological rhythms, individual difference, effects of sleep deprivation, and theories of sleep. In 1958 Bernie was appointed psychology chair at the University of Florida, which was developing as a research university. During his years as chair, the size and scope of the department increased, graduate research professorships were established, and plans were laid for a new psychology building. In addition to receiving various awards, he served as president of the Southern Society for Philosophy and Psychology, the Southeastern Psychological Association, the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Division of Teaching, as well as its Division of the History of Psychology. He also served two terms on the APA Board of Directors. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Joseph French (1928–2018).
    • Abstract: Presents an obituary of Joseph French (1928 –2018). At Pennsylvania State University (PSU), French developed one of the earliest doctoral school psychology programs, directed the School Psychology Clinic, and for 7 years was head of the Department of Special Education. He was president of the Association for the Gifted (1969) and the Division of School Psychology of the American Psychological Association (APA; 1976–1977) and held other positions with the Council for Exceptional Children, the American Counseling Association, the APA Division of School Psychology, and the Pennsylvania Psychological Association (PPA). He will be remembered as a professional and family role model who excelled in contributing to the development and history of school psychology, special education, test development, and training.

  • “Journal article reporting standards for quantitative research in
           psychology: The APA Publications and Communications Board Task Force
           Report”: Correction to Appelbaum et al. (2018).
    • Abstract: Reports an error in "Journal article reporting standards for quantitative research in psychology: The APA Publications and Communications Board task force report" by Mark Appelbaum, Harris Cooper, Rex B. Kline, Evan Mayo-Wilson, Arthur M. Nezu and Stephen M. Rao (American Psychologist, 2018[Jan], Vol 73[1], 3-25). In the article, there was a citation error. In the “Clinical Trials” subsection in the section, “Reporting Standards for Studies With an Experimental Manipulation” (p. 13), the reference to the World Medical Association’s Declaration of Helsinki should be to the 2008 version of the declaration. The sentence should read as follows: From an ethical perspective, the Declaration of Helsinki, which is the set of ethical principles regarding human experimentation developed by the World Medical Association, Inc. (2008), stated that “every clinical trial must be registered in a publicly accessible database before recruitment of the first subject” (Item 19, p. 3). The corrected reference, on p. 25, is also presented in the erratum. (The following abstract of the original article appeared in record 2018-00750-002.) Following a review of extant reporting standards for scientific publication, and reviewing 10 years of experience since publication of the first set of reporting standards by the American Psychological Association (APA; APA Publications and Communications Board Working Group on Journal Article Reporting Standards, 2008), the APA Working Group on Quantitative Research Reporting Standards recommended some modifications to the original standards. Examples of modifications include division of hypotheses, analyses, and conclusions into 3 groupings (primary, secondary, and exploratory) and some changes to the section on meta-analysis. Several new modules are included that report standards for observational studies, clinical trials, longitudinal studies, replication studies, and N-of-1 studies. In addition, standards for analytic methods with unique characteristics and output (structural equation modeling and Bayesian analysis) are included. These proposals were accepted by the Publications and Communications Board of APA and supersede the standards included in the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA, 2010).

  • Racial/ethnic discrimination and well-being during adolescence: A
           meta-analytic review.
    • Abstract: This meta-analytic study systematically investigates the relations between perceived racial/ethnic discrimination and socioemotional distress, academics, and risky health behaviors during adolescence, and potential variation in these relations. The study included 214 peer-reviewed articles, theses, and dissertations, with 489 unique effect sizes on 91,338 unique adolescents. Random-effects meta-analyses across 11 separate indicators of well-being identified significant detrimental effects. Greater perceptions of racial/ethnic discrimination were linked to more depressive and internalizing symptoms; greater psychological distress; poorer self-esteem; lower academic achievement and engagement; less academic motivation; greater engagement in externalizing behaviors, risky sexual behaviors, and substance use; and more associations with deviant peers. Metaregression and subgroup analyses indicated differences by race/ethnicity, Gender × Race/Ethnicity interactions, developmental stage, timing of retrospective measurement of discrimination, and country. Overall, this study highlights the pernicious effects of racial/ethnic discrimination for adolescents across developmental domains and suggests who is potentially at greater risk.

  • The coelacanth still lives: Bringing selection back to the fore in a
           science of behavior.
    • Abstract: There is little scientific debate regarding the validity of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection, which effectively describes how relevant ancestral histories produce both an organism’s genetic characteristics and innate behavioral repertoires. The combination of variation and selection in the production of novel forms can be extended beyond Darwinian theory to encompass facts of ontogeny. The present article sheds light on an underappreciated and critical insight, namely, that the consequences of behavior have a selective effect analogous to that observed in biological evolution. Three levels of environmental selection (phylogenic, ontogenic, and cultural) constitute a full account of the causes for action. This perspective identifies the relevant functional contingencies of which behavior is a product, it accurately and parsimoniously predicts a wide variety of disparate behavioral findings, it resolves old debates on nativism and empiricism, it unites psychological science under a central organizing principle, and it specifies psychology’s position in relation to biology. Wholesale adoption of this perspective should be considered a positive advance for the field of psychology. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Immigration policy, practices, and procedures: The impact on the mental
           health of Mexican and Central American youth and families.
    • Abstract: Currently, 15 million Mexican and Central American individuals live in the United States, with this number projected to rise in the next few decades (Lesser & Batalova, 2017; Zong & Batalova, 2017). Research has begun to investigate the impact of the nation’s immigration practices and policies on immigrant Latino/a families and youth. Current immigration policies can create vulnerabilities, including fear and mistrust, discrimination, limited access to services, parent–child separation, and poverty. These experiences increase risk for poor mental health outcomes and may exacerbate prior exposure to traumas in the home country (e.g., violence) and during migration (e.g., extortion). This paper reviews current immigration policies for arriving Mexican and Central American immigrants and links to mental health among documented and undocumented immigrant families and youth. A discussion of positive policies and resources that may mitigate the damaging impact of immigration-related stress is included. Finally, social justice implications for clinicians and researchers are discussed, with culturally sensitive interventions, advocacy, and dissemination of research and policy as primary recommendations.

  • Big data in psychology: A framework for research advancement.
    • Abstract: The potential for big data to provide value for psychology is significant. However, the pursuit of big data remains an uncertain and risky undertaking for the average psychological researcher. In this article, we address some of this uncertainty by discussing the potential impact of big data on the type of data available for psychological research, addressing the benefits and most significant challenges that emerge from these data, and organizing a variety of research opportunities for psychology. Our article yields two central insights. First, we highlight that big data research efforts are more readily accessible than many researchers realize, particularly with the emergence of open-source research tools, digital platforms, and instrumentation. Second, we argue that opportunities for big data research are diverse and differ both in their fit for varying research goals, as well as in the challenges they bring about. Ultimately, our outlook for researchers in psychology using and benefiting from big data is cautiously optimistic. Although not all big data efforts are suited for all researchers or all areas within psychology, big data research prospects are diverse, expanding, and promising for psychology and related disciplines.

  • Community-based participatory research (CBPR): Towards equitable
           involvement of community in psychology research.
    • Abstract: Community-based participatory research (CBPR) answers the call for more patient-centered, community-driven research approaches to address growing health disparities. CBPR is a collaborative research approach that equitably involves community members, researchers, and other stakeholders in the research process and recognizes the unique strengths that each bring. The aim of CBPR is to combine knowledge and action to create positive and lasting social change. With its origins in psychology, sociology, and critical pedagogy, CBPR has become a common research approach in the fields of public health, medicine, and nursing. Although it is well aligned with psychology’s ethical principles and research aims, it has not been widely implemented in psychology research. The present article introduces CBPR to a general psychology audience while considering the unique aims of and challenges in conducting psychology research. In this article, we define CBPR principles, differentiate it from a more traditional psychology research approach, retrace its historical roots, provide concrete steps for its implementation, discuss its potential benefits, and explore practical and ethical challenges for its integration into psychology research. Finally, we provide a case study of CBPR in psychology to illustrate its key constructs and implementation. In sum, CBPR is a relevant, important, and promising research framework that may guide the implementation of more effective, culturally appropriate, socially just, and sustainable community-based psychology research.
