Useful links for our article explaining why most psychology interventions do not adequately control for placebo effects

Two days, ago, Walter Boot, Cary Stothart, Cassie Stutts, and I published a paper in Perspectives on Psychological Science (linked below) arguing that most studies in psychology do not adequately account for the placebo effect. I thought it might be useful to provide all of the relevant links about that paper in one place, so I’m doing so here. I’ll update this post as needed.
