Comments[edit source]

Hi Stefanie,

I really like the layout and structure of your book chapter. I understand that you are still currently working on it.. however, i think you might benefit from including some applied examples, potentially consider adding some hyperlinks and maybe breaking down some of the content into smaller sentences to make it a little easier to read? I think you're definitely on the right track. I have "starred" your chapter and will provide more feedback as you continue along. Good luck! --U3096823 (discusscontribs) 09:27, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

I really like the structure of your chapter so far. I think the key concept boxes are a great idea as they help to clarify the theoretical components of your chapter. I've added an overview and see also section to your page. The checklist on the assessment criteria page - - mentions needing these and they seem to be a standard part of most Wiki entries. Obviously, feel free to delete if you'd prefer not to have them. Good luck! U3036568 (discusscontribs) 20:55, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi Stephanie, Great looking chapter thus far. I noticed that you don't have a sub-heading to your chapter title which gives the reader an indication of what important question you are hoping to answer if someone picked your chapter off a book shelf to read. I think this would be helpful. Also due to the nature of your topic, it would be helpful to perhaps include a case study of someone to whom you could apply the theories of emotion-focused therapy t them. I see you have headings focussed on couples, depression etc at the bottom, so that may be a good place to insert a case study. Although please feel free to ignore my suggestions also!! Well done and all the best. Candice--CJBush03 (discusscontribs) 00:38, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi Stephanie, your book chapter is looking great so far. I really like that you have put colorful boxes highlighting the key points. They are really helpful for a reader who just wants to skim read. One suggestion, which you don't have to use, is that the colour of the box you have used for your title doesn't do anything for your page. A brighter colour that matches the rest of your chapter would probably suit better and be more aesthetically pleasing :) :) (3083783ro (discusscontribs) 07:09, 20 October 2015 (UTC)=u3083783)

Heading casing[edit source]

Crystal Clear app ktip.svg
FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings. For example, use:

==Cats and dogs==

rather than

==Cats and Dogs==
