Sophrology reference guide in Wikipedia



Wikipedia defines Sophrology as follows:

‘Sophrology, coming from Ancient Greek σῶς / sôs (“healthy”), φρήν / phrēn (“mind”), and -λογία / -logia (“study of”), is a personal development technique founded in 1960 by Alfonso Caycedo, a Colombian neuropsychiatrist. It studies individual consciousness in order to allow a more conscious living. It was originally presented as a personal development and stress reduction methodology by its creator in the “Recife declaration” in 1977.’

Wikipedia’s policy on referring to sources in the public domain is as follows:

‘Wikipedia articles should be based on reliable, published sources, making sure that all majority and significant minority views that have appeared in those sources are covered.

The guideline in this page discusses the reliability of various types of sources. The policy on sourcing is Wikipedia:Verifiability, which requires inline citations for any material challenged or likely to be challenged, and for all quotations. The policy is strictly applied to all material in the mainspace—articles, lists, and sections of articles—without exception, and in particular to biographies of living persons, which states:

Contentious material about living persons (or, in some cases, recently deceased) that is unsourced or poorly sourced—whether the material is negative, positive, neutral, or just questionable—should be removed immediately and without waiting for discussion.’
