Because there are many questionable therapeutic techniques that people purport are effective, clinicians need a way to evaluate which approaches are based on science and which are not. Topics to be addressed will be defining pseudoscience and quackery/weird science, how to use “baloney detectors” when evaluating techniques, and how to be appropriately skeptical of all claims made.
- After this course, participants will be able to list 5 ways to not be “quacked” in selecting a therapeutic technique.
- After this course, participants will be able to define pseudoscience, quackery and skepticism.
- After this course, participants will be able to explain how to differentiate if a proposed approach is based on science or pseudoscience.
