1/ Organisations need generalist advisers who are not attached to their experience and expertise. Fresh eyes + deep understanding of individuals across cultural divides will mark emerging consulting paradigms. This will put pressure on business schools.
2/ In the words of @davidsrose "All companies designed to succeed in the 20th century are doomed to fail in the 21st century."

Several reasons -

The new world is digital. The new generation is digital. Change is on an accelerating curve. Learning is not. #futureofwork
@davidsrose 3/ Companies are led by people trained on industrial age methods by industrial age academics in industrial age institutions. Leadership is about growing existing portfolios by scaling. #Innovation means disrupting existing mindsets and methods. This is new. #futureofwork

Typical problem in #psychology and #education research: Study shows that a program has little/no effect. How do the authors (who are invested in the program) react? They try to salvage it and argue that it really does work. 🙄
Later passages in the article:
"Future studies should examine...moderator variables to better understand with whom and under what conditions Second Step differentially impacts academic outcomes."
"Researchers should continue to explore the impact of Second Step..."
This is a study with the strongest effect size for the intervention was d = .126. Of 28 outcomes, only 4 (14.3%) were statistically significant (p < .05). But it never occurs to the authors that teaching "social emotional learning" doesn't improve academics noticeably.

was recently asked if I had any writings to explain why Singal's past articles on trans health & children are flawed/biased. in this post, I compile my critiques (+ others) of those articles - specifically, the ones highlighted in the photo: patreon.com/posts/19542136
if you have time for a long-read, and really want to understand the many omissions & mischaracterizations of gender-affirming approaches to #trans #health by Singal et al., this is the piece I'd most recommend: medium.com/@juliaserano/d… #transgender #LGBTQ #children #psychology
...btw I have more in the pipeline. since mainstream media are not inclined to pay writers to pen articles defending gender-affirming approaches these days, I am funding this largely via my Patreon, so please consider supporting me there! patreon.com/juliaserano/ov…

How about we kick off your week with some more #marketing #psychology tips from the world of Readers?

(If you missed an earlier thread explaining who that is, check this out then come back: )
And doubly before we dig in I want to make this disclaimer: I am in no way advocating for defrauding your clients. Telling them you can do X & then not being able to do X is fraud. You're accepting $ under false pretenses (IE: I can talk to dead people!) Now that's cleared up...
SYSTEMS

We're going to go down the rabbit hole of having systems. Every single reader has one. Whether they're a dowser, tarot card reader, crystal ball seer, etc; they ALWAYS have one system or another.

Why is that?

People want it. Simple as that, but there's more to it.

glancing at my feed, it seems as though somebody somewhere has published yet another ROGD-moral-panic piece. so I am re-upping this essay, feel free to share: medium.com/@juliaserano/e… #trans #transgender #LGBTQ #health #psychology #children #gender #ROGD
...there should be a law that, if you decide to write or publish an alarmist #ROGD piece, then this paragraph from the WPATH Standards of Care gets permanently tattooed to your forehead... #trans #transgender #LGBTQ #health #psychology #children #gender
...btw @JennyBoylan just wrote a wonderful response to the aforementioned ROGD piece, in the NY times no less! nytimes.com/2019/01/08/opi…

Are you making New Year's Resolutions? There's tons of pressure in the media to change your lifestyle - but #psychology research shows that these messages can backfire badly - harming your health - so here's a short thread summarising the most interesting findings #NewYearsDay
(|1) Lots of diets/fitness regimes play on a sense of guilt - about what you're eating/how much exercise you do/screen time/stress levels. But there's tonnes of evidence that feelings of guilt can actually make you MORE likely to fail in your goals etc. bbc.com/future/story/2…
(2) Guilt increases cravings, and depletes feelings of self-control - a bad combination! It also triggers the "what-the-hell" response, so a small lapse means that all your good intentions have been in vain, but one piece of cake can't ruin all that good work! #resolutions2019

Question for folks familiar with #LGBTQ+ research, particularly on life trajectories: A lot of researchers seem obsessed with the notion that childhood gender non-conformity (GNC) is tied to being gay (or in some cases trans) as an adult... #science #psychology #sex #research
While certainly true in some cases, many LGBTQ+ adults were not GNC during childhood. These latter cases are usually ignored/viewed as anomalies, probably b/c they don't fit the "sexual inversion" model (e.g., feminized/masculinized brain) that many researchers still cling to...
...anyway, I'm compiling research/evidence that suggests an alternative model, namely, that GNC children are more likely to recognize&embrace that they are LGBTQ+ earlier in part b/c they behave different from same-assigned-gender peers, receive more scrutiny from adults/peers...

1/ I have been asked by many people how I managed to be accepted to @MILAMontreal after two years of trying. Here's my story. Last year I reached out to a new prof at MILA and I audited their class.
2/ They were interested, but when I applied, the semi-automatic system from MILA admission rejected me almost instantly because of my GPA. The admission completely ignored my 6 publications in child #psychology, 2 of which are #statistics paper where I'm first author.
3/ It frustrated me and it still does that this wasn't considered as relevant. Research is research, and research skills are easily transferable from a field to another. People are obsessed with labels and boxes and I didn't tick the correct #AI box.

just wrote a rebuttal to that horribly misinformed @PsychToday piece from last week: "Mass Psychogenic Illness: The Latest Make-Believe Cause of #Transgender Identity" – it's on Medium, so please give it lots of "claps" so that others see it!

re: two misconceptions about my new essay: 1) I did not address certain claims made in the @PsychToday article (re: "peer clusters", social media influence, etc.) b/c I already addressed these in depth in my #ROGD essay: medium.com/@juliaserano/e… #transgender #psychology #LGBTQ

#OSHO #hypnosis

The #unconscious #mind is nine times bigger than the #conscious; it has tremendous treasures, all the memories of your past.

Below the unconscious, there is the collective unconscious. One can descend into the collective unconscious also with somebody’s help.
The master of Mystery School will take you slowly towards the unconscious and the collective #unconscious.

In your collective unconscious, you have memories of your #PastLives as animals, as birds.
Below the collective unconscious is the #cosmic #unconscious.

Slowly, slowly one can go deeper and deeper, and the cosmic unconscious has #memories of your being trees, rosebushes, stones.

The #1 question I got this weekend was “What can I do with a PSYC degree?” I have general and specific answers to this question. THREAD 👇[1/13]
Many employers are looking for skills in data management, data analysis, teamwork, and research. PSYC programs train in all of these. [2/13]
Re-frame group projects. If teamwork is going off the rails, good instructors support students to work through the problem. “How can we get this back on track?” Remember this experience for the job interview question “how did you turn around a tough professional situation?”[3/13]

Extremely f**ked up over, though not surprised by, the realization that Maslow borrowed heavily/stole from the Blackfeet Nation/Blackfoot people to build what we know as Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. Of course he Westernized it to remove spirituality
(as did the original "founders" of this country that stole our system of government from the Iroquois People when they removed spirituality as the fourth component of governance), and made it an individual model rather than a communal model, despite needing community
(e.g., ancestors, elders, etc), to reach those levels. When he was stuck on his model, he visited his anthropology buddies on the reservation and began talking to elders about their ways of life. Everything was revealed to him and he published his model not long after.

brand new Medium piece, but of an older spoken word piece (from 2012) about the rather old superstition that #LGBTQ people are somehow "contagious" - that's right, the #ROGD crowd didn't invent that! medium.com/@juliaserano/t… #queer #trans #transgender #children #health #psychology

This came in the mail over the weekend. I don't get to read much fiction, so I think I'll enjoy it. #psychology
This whole paragraph (Gardner, 2011, p. xix) is a train wreck of scientific logic. Basically, Gardner says because he doesn't want to be a psychometrician, he doesn't have to gather data to multiple intelligences... and the theory isn't testable anyway.

Gardner (2011, p. xxi) thinks the Mozart effect is real, even...

#1: I have the right to ask for what I want.
You are allowed to ask. You don't have to mind-read beforehand to make sure the answer will be yes. You don't have to swallow everything you want or like or need. Sure, it's possible the answer will be "no," but you can prepare for that possibility. It's not wrong to ask.

a THREAD of all my essays related to current #transgender/GNC children debates. here is my most thorough piece: "Detransition, Desistance, & Disinformation" - it's a long read b/c this is a complex subject: medium.com/@juliaserano/d…
..."Transgender Agendas, Social Contagion, Peer Pressure, and Prevalence" challenges the notion that kids are suddenly being "turned transgender" these days...
medium.com/@juliaserano/t… #trans #transgender #LGBTQ #health #children #psychology
"Reframing 'Transgender Desistance' Debates" discusses recent research debunking the "80% desistance" myth, and demonstrating the very real harm of gender-disaffirming approaches...

good news: IJT has now made the paper I describe here, which comprehensively challenges the "80% desistance" myth, open access! medium.com/@juliaserano/r… #trans #LGBTQ #transgender #health #psychology #children
while I encourage you to read my essay about it, you can access that paper directly here: tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.108…
and the second paper I described (by same set of authors) remains open access, and can be downloaded directly here: cfp.ca/content/64/5/3…

this piece begins w/500 words on: 1) transgender is spectrum, 2) trans sub-categories aren't discrete, 3) trans trajectories are varied (& all are valid), 4) trans & cis are not mutually-exclusive (due to questioning ppl), 5) therefore cisgender is not a stable category
honestly, I don't know how anyone could write a realistic #trans/GNC #children article without stating all this from the get-go. unsurprisingly, Singal ignores most, if not all, of this. which is one of the reasons ppl find his piece so distorted/biased...
great, apparently another mainstream outlet just published another "but desistance" op-ed...ugh. btw, since ppl have been asking, not a single mainstream outlet has approached me about writing an informed response to @TheAtlantic piece...
