    Middle class sprawl: Locating the psychologesque in the history of psychology, 2021, David C Devonis
    To add to the system of classes already present in the recent historiography of psychology, a new and broader class is proposed, the psychologesque. This class includes, along with a central core of master's- and PhD-level psychologists, surrounding belts of cognate professionals in other fields who are, to a greater or lesser degree, tinged with psychology. Advantages to including this broad class, in some ways similar to the U.S. middle class, in the history of psychology are advanced. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved).

    Can’t read paper, sounds interesting. So sort of like bourgeoise psychology….psychologiose?

    So morphed psychology theory and practicd..with a few things made up “intuitively”?

    Cognate professionals, are these actually professionals or just people with a Bachelor of Psychology who set up dodgy practices and call themselves professionals. That would be worth studying, a plague upon the profession and pwME and a whole host of other medical disorders.
    FMMM1, Mithriel and Trish like this.
