ASP MOSEdit

Style of WritingEdit

Try to write in a clear, concise style. Use correct psychological terms, but make sure to explain such terms immediately afterward. Avoid interwiki links when possible.

ReferencesEdit

References should use standard MOS formatting, but the bibliography should use APA style.

TemplatesEdit

There are three specificalities this text uses.

Informational TemplateEdit

{{subst:Template:ASPinfo|Example Title|Example Info}} produces:

Example Title

Example Info

This should be used when blocking text off as separate information. If discussing masochism (sexual arousal from pain) and you want to sidetrack into algonagnia (sexual pleasure and orgasm from pain), you would use it:

Algolagnia and Masochism

It's important to remember that algonagnia is not a paraphilia, but a biological nerve dysfunction. Masochists are aroused by specific kinds of pain, but algolagniacs can be brought to orgasm through pain even if they aren't aroused.

DSM-IV Quote TemplateEdit

{{subst:Template:DSMIVinfo|Example Entry|Example Text}} produces:

DSM-IV on : Example Entry

Example Text

This is a short cite of the DSM-IV, or content relating to the DSM-IV's stance on a paraphilia. This should ONLY be used when:

  1. to directly quote the DSM-IV in a definition of a scientific term. This cite should be very limited in scope when possible.
  2. to discuss the DSM-IV "viewpoint" on a topic, without a direct cite.
  3. the DSM-IV makes an asseration that is in conflict with mainstream views on the subject. For example, in dealing with Voyeurism:
DSM-IV on : Voyeurism

While popular culture likes to describe voyeurs as peeping toms who can't get a date or make significant relationships work, the DSM-IV shows that voyeurism is the most common of all paraphilias, with the highest rate of normal exclusivity out of all paraphilias. At least 55% of men and 30% of women admitted in studies to be aroused by acts that meet the standard of voyeurism. Some argue that this makes voyeurism simply a behavior and not a paraphilia.

Controversial TemplateEdit

{{subst:Template:ASPControversy|Example Issue|Example Controversy}} produces:

Example Issue : Controversy

Example Controversy

This should be used when there is significant disagreement in professiona psychological circles about a paraphilia , or the view of psychology on a specific cause or trait of a paraphilia. This should be used sparingly. An example dealing with pedophilia would be:

Pedophilia and Asexuality : Controversy

There is some research indicating that paraphilia is common among those who, whether by choice or vocation, are restricted from normal sexual activity. DSM-IV does not recognize such a link, but studies are still ongoing.

DSM-IV Direct Cite TemplateEdit

Warning: Unless you are very familiar with what is and isn't allowed to be fair use quoted from the DSM-IV, do not use this template or quote directly from the DSM-IV. The DSM-IV is widely available as excerpts on the Internet as long as it is only

  • The diagnostic code
  • The summary
  • The etiology
  • The treatment options

The extended analysis, diagnostic guide, point-by-point criteria, and the like cannot be directly quoted under fair use.

{{subst:Template:DSMCite|example cite}} produces:
