Helping Give Away Psychological Science (HGAPS, pronounced as two syllables: "H-Gaps") is a nonprofit (501c3) service organization with affiliated chapters at multiple universities. HGAPS is dedicated to helping the best information about psychological science reach the people who would benefit. Our goal is to build small groups to improve the information about psychology on Wikipedia and in the community. We aim to make the pages reach the level of the best college textbook on the topic and help clinicians, clients, and educators each find high-quality resources quickly. View the HGAPS Website

HGAPS at the 2020 Convention of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT)[edit | edit source]

There are several programming events at the convention featuring HGAPS or resources and materials that HGAPS has helped develop. We have done similar workshops at the Miami International Child and Adolescent Mental Health (MICAMH) Conference in February 2020, and via Zoom for the North Carolina Psychological Association in April 2020. We are improvising how to deliver the workshop at ABCT 2020, and are changing some of our objectives based on what we are learning about the ABCT Conference Portal over the course of the actual convention. We prerecorded most of the teaching content, and we have uploaded the video to the HGAPS YouTube channel (please subscribe!) as well as putting it inside the ABCT Convention site.

Invited Address- Helping Give Away Psychological Science: Bringing the Best of Our work to the People Who Would Benefit[edit | edit source]

Author: Eric A. Youngstrom, Ph.D; University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill & HGAPS.org

Imagine that we actually were all in the same room! Eric Youngstrom and a group of HGAPS leaders including Emma Choplin, Hannah Kim, Jenny Rogers Smith, Bellete Lu, and Lizzie Wilson (taken at the MICAMH 2020 conference)

Psychologists create a huge amount of research and clinical materials every year. Only a fraction of it directly helps patients. Problems of awareness, access, and applicability are among the obstacles. Open-source approaches to dissemination show great promise in fixing the leaky pipeline due to easy accessibility and low cost. For example, Wikipedia is the largest encyclopedia in the world and the 5th most visited internet site. Wikiversity, whose audience is practitioners and graduate students, is a sister site geared towards teaching and practice. Imagine if we could use these to share resources and improve implementation of psychological science. Well, we can! The proof-of-concept projects have included editing more than 300 pages on Wikipedia and also on Wikiversity. An Evidence Based Assessment site has more than 200 pages that have been accessed more than 275,000 times. The pages include links to more than 250 PDFs of measures (stored on OSF.ioso the links will not rot), along with details about scoring and interpretation. An assessment center with free, automated scoring for more than 70 scales has been built with grants from the APS, SSCP, SCCAP/Division53, SCP/Division 12, and the APA/CODAPAR. It provides free scoring reports, and it has been used more than 35,000 times. Creative Commons licensing, widely used in the arts, offers an easy way for us to share the science and practice.

Free, simple strategies will let us crowdsource the expertise of ABCT and bring the best information to the people who would benefit.

Free, shareable version of the slides from the keynote available here.


Learning goals for the session:[edit | edit source]

  1. Identify three advantages to using Wikipedia for dissemination of information about emotional and behavioral issues and resources.
  2. Locate at least three free assessment resource kits on Wikiversity that can be used in clinical practice, research, and teaching.
  3. Use Creative Commons licensing to make it easier to share resources and maintain control of our work.

Free copy of the slides![edit | edit source]

The slides from the talk are available here. The talk tells the origin story of why Eric got started editing Wiki (which includes why he was walking around with his arm in a cast at ABCT 2011), as well as how Wikipedia, Wikiversity, and Wikidata are powerful tools for helping the public better understand psychology and what it can offer.

The slides illustrate many of the principles and techniques we can use to share our information more effectively. They have a Creative Commons license on them, showing how we can make it clear when and how we want to share materials. The CC BY 4.0 license means that you are allowed to use the slides, and remix them, so long as you include a citation to the original work. Please send the slides to friends and colleagues, and use whatever is helpful in your own work!

The deck also includes links to many pages and resources, as well as shortened links and QR Codes, showing various ways that content can be shared using different technologies.

Evidence-based Assessment to Improve Diagnosis, Case Formulation, and Outcomes: Online Resources to Improve Practice (Symposium 32)[edit | edit source]

Chair: Margaret Crane, M.A., Temple University

Group photo of Andrew Freeman, Margaret Crane, Eric Youngstrom, Mandy Jensen-Doss, Anna Van Meter, and Samantha Margherio presenting at ABCT 2020 Virtual Convention for Symposium 32

Discussant: Mandy Jensen-Doss, PhD, University of Miami

This symposium shows how to use many free tools and resources to do evidence-based assessment. Talks show how to weave assessment tools into the beginning, middle, and end of our work with clients. Specifically, there are free scales that can be done before the first session, as well as tools to use in case formulation and semi-structured interviews, along with progress and outcome measures. The talks walk through the assessment steps from customizing the toolkit for different clinical settings, on to documenting better outcomes. Talks show details for work with

Resources[edit | edit source]

Talk #1: HGAPS Assessment Center[edit | edit source]

Presented by Lizzie Wilson

  • Link to YouTube segment
  • The Assessment Center (viewcount: ~200 since creation)
  • Assessment Center Information on Wikiversity (viewcount: 556)
  • Question: "Does the platform [Assessment Center] collect the data/results?"
    • Answer: "All of the responses are deidentified (or anonymous), so we keep no identifying information about any of the folks who take our assessments. This is how we keep all of the responses confidential. However, responses to assessments can be saved in the form of a PDF after you or a client takes the assessment. This is how clinicians can get their client’s responses. We are also working on creating a system where clients’ responses will be sent directly to a clinicians email, and are in the process of trial running this system in UNC’s training clinics at the moment. Hopefully we will have this available more widely in the near future."
  • Question: "Have people been using the site for teaching purposes?"
    • Answer: "Yes! Eric has used the site for teaching purposes in both his undergraduate Developmental Psychopathology class and his graduate Assessment class. We use them to learn how to fill out assessments for clinical vignettes. In each of the assessment batteries, there is an option to indicate that you are taking the assessment for a reason other than to seriously probe your own or a loved one’s mental health. We usually ask students to press this option so that we can filter “real” responses from responses made out of curiosity or for teaching purposes."

Talk #2: Using Wiki To Disseminate Psychological Science[edit | edit source]

Presented by Joshua A. Langfus

  • Link to YouTube segment
  • Full Evidence-based Assessment Guide, Manual and Resources on Wikiversity (viewcount: since 17,458 since creation)
  • Question: "Imposter syndrome grad student over here…. Can I disseminate information on wikipedia without a doctorate?"
    • Answer: "Absolutely! As long as the content you add meets the quality requirements. Those requirements are publicly available, and include adhering to neutral point of view, adding citations for factual claims, etc. Anybody can edit wikipedia, and there are many other users who volunteer to help new users learn how to make helpful contributions. That is the beauty of Wikipedia - it is freely editable, open-access, and also has many experienced editors providing oversight. Edit away!"

Talk #3: Evolution of Sharing while Responding to Crises[edit | edit source]

Presented by Hannah Kim

Talk #4: Psychological Science for Public Consumption[edit | edit source]

Presented by Emma Grace Choplin

Click here for this segment of the presentation: Powerpoint[5]

About: This segment of the presentation is an introduction and examples on how to assess the public’s needs and then how to fulfill them by disseminating open-access psychological science in an attractive and digestible form so that it can reach the most people without any barriers of use.

  • Comment: "I love the idea of information as a fundamental right! The clean water ~ clean information metaphor is neat, too."
    • Response: "Thank you, just like it should be a human right for all to have easy access to clean water it should also be a human right that all have easy access to accurate and comprehensible psychological science online. This is important since the top two barriers to seeking mental health help amongst young people is the fear of judgement (social stigma surrounding mental health issues) and low mental health literacy."[6][7][8]
