All We Like Sheep: The Need for Reflection and Reflexivity in I-O Psychology

Please join for us for our first virtual event of 2023!

In recent years, various I-O psychologists have raised concerns about the state of our field, with some arguing that we are experiencing a collective identity crisis and have lost our way. During this presentation, I will explore why these concerns have emerged by reviewing the development of our field from a philosophy of science perspective. Then I will discuss how the concepts of reflection and reflexivity can help us clarify our professional worldviews and find a way forward. Finally, I will suggest ways to incorporate reflection and reflexivity into I-O research and practice. My hope is to spark a conversation about the role that reflection and reflexivity could play in our field.
