    J Child Psychol Psychiatry 2020; 61(1):1-3Sonuga-Barke EJS
  • How is practical progress possible in child psychology and psychiatry? How does science advance to promote therapeutic innovation? The importance of the exciting stuff - new insights and ideas, studied using cutting edge and innovative technologies - is self-evident. However, the philosophy of science has shown us that less obvious and more mundane elements are also essential. This is because sci…
  • Transformative learning as pedagogy for the health professions: a scoping review. [Review]
    Med Educ 2019; 53(6):547-558Van Schalkwyk SC, Hafler J, … Bellagio Global Health Education Initiative
  • CONCLUSIONS: The training of health professionals often takes place in unfamiliar settings where students are encouraged to be active participants in providing care. This increases the opportunity for exposure to learning experiences that are potentially transformative, allowing for a pedagogy of uncertainty that acknowledges the complexity of the world we live in and questions what we believe we know about it. TL provides educators in the health professions with a theoretical lens through which they can view such student learning.

The second metatheory conceives of truth as correspondence, i.e., empirical accuracy. The two metatheor…
  • Not all motivated rejection of science is unconscious: Reply to Tryon (2018). [Comment]
    Am Psychol 2018 Jul-Aug; 73(5):687-688Hornsey MJ, Fielding KS
  • 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 …
  • Cryptic Emotions and the Emergence of a Metatheory of Mind in Popular Filmmaking. [Journal Article]
    Cogn Sci 2018; 42(4):1317-1344Cutting JE, Armstrong KL

We explore the origins and development of one of these, the reaction shot. This shot typically shows a single, unspeaking character with modest facial expression in response to an event or to the behavior or speech…
