Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2013/Emotion and cancer diagnosis
Chapter draft feedback
Great to see the excellent progress on this draft chapter during the first half of semester - congratulations. Here's some suggestions - feel free to take, leave or discuss any of them:
- The overall structure is excellent.
- The style is well-written, easy to read, and draws on peer-reviewed research.
- Perhaps some more can be said about the initial emotional reactions to a diagnosis e.g., shock.
- The section on adolescents is excellent. Does this also apply to children - or should there be a separate section for children?
- Perhaps try to incorporate some more about emotion theory/ies.
- The content about coping styles is useful.
- Wiki links can be made from key concepts to other chapters and/or Wikipedia articles
- Maybe one or two case study examples could help - e.g., one person who responded adapatively and another who coped poorly with a cancer diagnosis?
- I made some minor copyediting edits.
- Check references for APA style
This looks great! Good work! I think I will probably use what you've got so far as a guide for considering my own book chapter :) Really neat layout and organisation of info. Best of luck! PatrickBateman (discuss • contribs) 04:30, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
Awesome job Kasperi! You can definitely tell that you put a lot of effort into this. I really like how you did separate sections on men, women and adolescence. I think that provides readers with the real differences that can occur at different ages and different sex, as cancer can effect these groups differently. Great work :)--Maltrep (discuss • contribs) 01:23, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
I like the use of tables. The captions have citation(s) which is good. This is a somewhat subtle suggestion - Are the tables adapted from or based on these sources or is the table reproduced from these sources? Usually this would be indicated. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 11:16, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
