Given the volume of controversy from autistic advocates over applied behavior analysis, and the breadth of psychology as a general field encompassing many particular schools, I'd question the inclusion of applied behavior analysis in the psychology sidebar. What was the original thinking in including it? Is its inclusion really justified? 22.214.171.124 (talk) 02:50, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
I support the addition of coaching psychology. The article shows that it is an established (though relatively new) field of applied psychology, and I can't think of a good reason to exclude it from this template. Biogeographist (talk) 19:37, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

I suggest that you include the following work under the heading "Lectures complémentaires": Chakkarath, Pradeep (2012). Le rôle des psychologies indigènes dans le développement d'une psychologie culturelle élémentaire (pp. 71-95). Oxford University Press: New York. 2001:171B:C9B1:78C1:882A:EA8C:7E84:D49A (talk) 15:14, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
Why is the letter Psi here at the top?
I understand, of course, that it's the first letter in the Greek spelling of the word Psychology. But is it used elsewhere to represent Psychology, for example in textbooks? I am not familiar with any psychology textbooks myself.
It was added to this template in 2007: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Psychology_sidebar&diff=103943026&diffmode=source
I cannot find any discussions or explanations for adding it.
The Psychology sidebar lists Psychometrics in both the Basic and Applied subsections. I would like to suggest Psychometrics be removed from the Basic subsection and kept only in the Applied subsection. Psychometrics is considered a part of Quantitative Psychology, according to the Wikipedia article for Quantitative Psychology. Then, Psychometrics' connection to basic research is already covered by the Quantitative subfield, which is represented already in the Basic subsection. Thoughts by others on this idea?
