Comments[edit source]

just thinking, you could also talk about pain and the brain, so like brain regions and such. You could also talk about how pain in the mind and pain in the body are similar and different. <@:) Thegrounav (discusscontribs) 03:08, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Not sure if this is going a tad off topic, but it may also be interesting to look into pain perception as previous emotional experiences with such pain play a large part in this. Sara-anne123 (discusscontribs) 05:18, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Tying in to the book's theme..[edit source]

Hi there. Just an idea to help with tying the chapter into the overall theme of the book - perhaps you could discuss effective pain reduction methods which are not pharmacological, e.g. meditation, hypnosis, exercise, etc. :) Amyr16 (discusscontribs) 00:21, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Another way to tie into book theme - acceptance and commitment therapy is widely used for treating chronic pain. Also CBT, biofeedback therapies, interesting one on phantom pain is 'mirror therapy' Rashpocket (discusscontribs) 06:09, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Insensitivity to pain + self harming[edit source]

Hi!

I was just thinking, I know that there are people out there who don't actually feel pain - and I am pretty sure this can be emotionally derivative. Could be an interesting realm for you to touch on.

Another thing you could include is the concept of self harm - an example of how this links to your topic is shown in this quote: “I wanted to take the pain away from my heart and put it somewhere else.” This quote is from the article below which could have more useful information for you:

Laye-Gindhu, A. & Schonert-Reichl, K. A. (2005). Nonsuicidal Self-Harm Among Community Adolescents: Understanding the “Whats” and “Whys” of Self-Harm. Journal of Youth and Adolescence, 34(5), 447-457. DOI:10.1007/s10964-005-7262-z

I figure that both these topics link pain and emotion together well, and thought you may be able/want to incorporate them into your chapter :)

Another perspective?[edit source]

Hey hey hey! I was just wondering if there could be positive effects of pain on emotion? For instance "no pain, no gain" such as when working out, it has been said that the only way you know that you're actually accomplishing something is when you feel it hurting. Is there any truth to this or are you actually pushing yourself too hand and negatively reinforcing yourself if you are experiencing pain? Might be something cool to look into as it is a pretty widely known saying that gets pushed a lot especially with the boom in fitness lately. I'm sure personal trainers drop that speech a lot!!!

rather than

Overall[edit source]

Overall, this is a well presented chapter on a really fascinating topic - well done!

Theory[edit source]

Relevant theories are well described, with a very sound understanding of the content being displayed. Some more discussion around practical application would be beneficial e.g. how can we use emotional control to reduce pain?

Research[edit source]

Well done for managing to present some complex information in language appropriate for the target audience. The research presented is well selected and very interesting. To improve further, try to include some critical analysis. This can often be done in a concluding sentence at the end of a paragraph.

Written expression[edit source]

The chapter is well structured and the layout is appealing. Remember to proof read carefully, as there are a number of grammatical and spelling errors throughout. The inclusion of some interactive features will also improve the chapter. ShaunaB (discusscontribs)

Overall[edit source]

Structure and content[edit source]

The flow is clear and logical. Theory and research were well integrated into this presentation. There are a huge amount of information presented, which resulted in the explanation of some concepts being less clear. Perhaps spend some more time selecting the key concepts to be presented.

Communication[edit source]

Verbal communication is clear, confident and engaging. The images included are very good (although sometimes a little small to read properly). The use of some more illustrative examples would greatly improve the presentation.

Production quality[edit source]

Picture and sound quality are good. Production tools were effectively used. ShaunaB (discusscontribs)
