  • The strength of the causal evidence against physical punishment of
           children and its implications for parents, psychologists, and
           policymakers.
    • Abstract: The question of whether physical punishment is helpful or harmful to the development of children has been subject to hundreds of research studies over the past several decades. Yet whether causal conclusions can be drawn from this largely nonexperimental research and whether the conclusions generalize across contexts are issues that remain unresolved. In this article, the authors summarize the extent to which the empirical research on physical punishment meets accepted criteria for causal inference. They then review research demonstrating that physical punishment is linked with the same harms to children as is physical abuse and summarize the extant research that finds links between physical punishment and detrimental outcomes for children are consistent across cultural, family, and neighborhood contexts. The strength and consistency of the links between physical punishment and detrimental child outcomes lead the authors to recommend that parents should avoid physical punishment, psychologists should advise and advocate against it, and policymakers should develop means of educating the public about the harms of and alternatives to physical punishment.

  • Unconscious processing: Comment on Hornsey and Fielding (2017).
    • Abstract: The goals of this comment are to emphasize the positive contribution made by Hornsey and Fielding (2017) and to present reasons why their contribution is neither theoretic nor transtheoretic. This comment seeks to provide a theoretic and transtheoretic explanation that involves unconscious processing. It indicates that connectionist neural network models provide relevant mechanism information for how unconscious processing works. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Not all motivated rejection of science is unconscious: Reply to Tryon
           (2018).
    • Abstract: Tryon (2018) states that our proposed attitude roots are “effectively and functionally unconscious” (p. 685) and proposes connectionist neural network models as a mechanism for explaining these unconscious processes. In our response, we disagree with the presumption that our attitude roots necessarily operate at an unconscious level. Although some attitude roots may exert their influence through an unconscious process, others exert their influence as a result of explicit and mindful reasoning, and others still operate at a “preconscious” level: outside conscious awareness but accessible if required. Finally, we clarify that we did not claim in our article to have developed a theory or a metatheory. Rather, we drew on numerous established theories to make the case for the role of attitude roots and did so using a transtheoretical language that we hope can be useful in terms of integrating insights and developing concrete persuasion strategies.

  • Voice-only does not meaningfully improve detection of emotions: Comment on
           Kraus (2017).
    • Abstract: Kraus (2017) claims that voice-only communication allows more accurate detection of emotions than does voice-plus-visual communication. The present author reanalyzes the data from Kraus’s five experiments to reveal that the voice-only advantage is so slight as to not be of any practical importance.

  • What is a meaningful improvement in emotion detection' Reply to
           Rossiter (2018).
    • Abstract: In his comment, Rossiter (2018) claims that voice-only communication elicits improvements in empathic accuracy that are “so slight as to not be of any practical importance” (p. 689). In this reply, I acknowledge that the reported experiments from Kraus (2017) produced small effects and are limited in terms of what they can conclude about empathic accuracy. Nevertheless, determining the practical importance of any effect is an empirical question worthy of further scrutiny. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • A new look for addiction training in psychology programs: Comment on
           Dimoff, Sayette, and Norcross (2017).
    • Abstract: Dimoff, Sayette, and Norcross (2017) documented a serious omission in the education of psychologists. Their research showed a paucity of addiction training in doctoral programs despite the growing prevalence of addictions. Although their article briefly discussed possible explanations and barriers to explain this finding, the article itself was shaped by implicit assumptions about addiction training that contribute to the field’s failure to embrace such training. The current article identifies these assumptions and offers elements of an alternative approach to addiction training better suited to psychologists.

  • Addiction training and multiple treatments for all clinical psychologists:
           Reply to Freimuth (2018).
    • Abstract: The authors agree with Freimuth (2018) that addiction training among clinical psychologists would be enhanced by offering addiction-related training to all clinical students, including those who do not aim to specialize in substance abuse. It is argued that Freimuth’s points in fact support Dimoff, Sayette, and Norcross’s (2017) recommendation that clinical programs bolster their addiction training but, contrary to Freimuth, in all evidence-based (abstinence and nonabstinence) treatments predicated on patient needs, not on practitioner preferences.

  • Duane M. Rumbaugh (1929–2017).
    • Abstract: Presents an obituary of Duane M. Rumbaugh (1929–2017). Rumbaugh was an experimental psychologist known for his many contributions toward understanding primate learning and behavior. His ape-language research with Lana and other chimpanzees, comparative studies of quantitative and qualitative hallmarks of primate intelligence, and numerous methodological innovations helped usher in the field of comparative cognition. Rumbaugh’s scientific legacy is extensive. The computerized language keyboard invented for the Lana Project would subsequently be employed to teach other nonhuman primates, as well as humans with intellectual challenges to communicate.

  • The experimental evidence for parapsychological phenomena: A review.
    • Abstract: This article presents a comprehensive integration of current experimental evidence and theories about so-called parapsychological (psi) phenomena. Throughout history, people have reported events that seem to violate the common sense view of space and time. Some psychologists have been at the forefront of investigating these phenomena with sophisticated research protocols and theory, while others have devoted much of their careers to criticizing the field. Both stances can be explained by psychologists’ expertise on relevant processes such as perception, memory, belief, and conscious and nonconscious processes. This article clarifies the domain of psi, summarizes recent theories from physics and psychology that present psi phenomena as at least plausible, and then provides an overview of recent/updated meta-analyses. The evidence provides cumulative support for the reality of psi, which cannot be readily explained away by the quality of the studies, fraud, selective reporting, experimental or analytical incompetence, or other frequent criticisms. The evidence for psi is comparable to that for established phenomena in psychology and other disciplines, although there is no consensual understanding of them. The article concludes with recommendations for further progress in the field including the use of project and data repositories, conducting multidisciplinary studies with enough power, developing further nonconscious measures of psi and falsifiable theories, analyzing the characteristics of successful sessions and participants, improving the ecological validity of studies, testing how to increase effect sizes, recruiting more researchers at least open to the possibility of psi, and situating psi phenomena within larger domains such as the study of consciousness.

  • The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology's guidelines for
           education and training: An executive summary of the 2016/2017 revision.
    • Abstract: The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP, Division 14 of the American Psychological Association [APA]) maintains Guidelines for Education and Training to provide guidance for the training of industrial-organizational (I-O) psychologists. The 2016/2017 revision combines separate documents for master’s- and doctoral-level training into one document, because the competencies required for each degree are not very different. Instead, the degrees differ in breadth and depth. The updated Guidelines were approved as APA policy in August 2017. In this article, we briefly review the revision process and highlight the updates made in the latest version of the Guidelines. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Implications of research staff demographics for psychological science.
    • Abstract: Long-standing research traditions in psychology have established the fundamental impact of social categories, such as race and gender, on people’s perceptions of themselves and others, as well as on general human cognition and behavior. However, there is a general tendency to ignore research staff demographics (e.g., researchers’ race and gender) in research development and research reports. Variation in research staff demographics can exert systematic and scientifically informative influences on results from psychological research. Consequently, research staff demographics need to be considered, studied, and/or reported, along with how these demographics were allowed to vary across participants or conditions (e.g., random assignment, matched with participant demographics, or included as a factor in the experimental design). In addition to providing an overview of multidisciplinary evidence of research staff demographics effects, it is discussed how research staff demographics might influence research findings through (a) ingroup versus outgroup effects, (b) stereotype and (implicit) bias effects, and (c) priming and social tuning effects. Finally, an overview of recommended considerations is included (see Appendix) to help illustrate how to systematically incorporate relevant research staff demographics in psychological science.

  • Forensic psychology and correctional psychology: Distinct but related
           subfields of psychological science and practice.
    • Abstract: This article delineates 2 separate but related subfields of psychological science and practice applicable across all major areas of the field (e.g., clinical, counseling, developmental, social, cognitive, community). Forensic and correctional psychology are related by their historical roots, involvement in the justice system, and the shared population of people they study and serve. The practical and ethical contexts of these subfields is distinct from other areas of psychology—and from one another—with important implications for ecologically valid research and ethically sound practice. Forensic psychology is a subfield of psychology in which basic and applied psychological science or scientifically oriented professional practice is applied to the law to help resolve legal, contractual, or administrative matters. Correctional psychology is a subfield of psychology in which basic and applied psychological science or scientifically oriented professional practice is applied to the justice system to inform the classification, treatment, and management of offenders to reduce risk and improve public safety. There has been and continues to be great interest in both subfields—especially the potential for forensic and correctional psychological science to help resolve practical issues and questions in legal and justice settings. This article traces the shared and separate developmental histories of these subfields, outlines their important distinctions and implications, and provides a common understanding and shared language for psychologists interested in applying their knowledge in forensic or correctional contexts.
