Hi Don, Rather than "psychosocial", the usual term in French is "psychosociological". Or "sociopsychological", if you prefer! As they are numerous and well established, they have come to be called in brief: the "psychosocios". I think that trend took shape toward the end of the seventies, when a number of ufologists turned skeptics. The Magonians are another trend well represented in France, like in the UK. They are followers of Jacques Vallee, who recalled the old legend of Magonia in his book Passport To Magonia. An amusing detail is that the book was translated in French under the title The Search Of Extraterrestrials (A la recherche des Extraterrestres), but it was his first book putting in doubt the ETH!
