Looking great so far![edit source]

Hi, your book chapter is coming along really well. Your topic is similar in some ways to mine (Motivation in afterlife belief), but most notably in our joint reference to Terror Management Theory. Your page is a really good companion site to mine on the aspect of the TMT that explains inter-religion conflict (I’ll be focussing more on the other aspects), so I will link to your page for a full account. One article that I have found (I’ll probably use it too, but that shouldn’t be an issue) that you might find useful is this one by Vail et al. I hope this helps! Happy writing, Hayley U3017556 (discusscontribs) 23:32, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

This is such an interesting topic and I look forward to learning more. I've made a few minor edits throughout your page to add commas to your in-text citations to ensure they adhere to APA formatting requirements. Good luck! U3036568 (discusscontribs) 00:56, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Looks like an interesting topic, you may want to have a look at 'The Australian Government’s Countering Violent Extremism Strategy', or 'Australia's Regional Summit to Counter Violent Extremism' for your section regarding practical application. Information can be found at these links;, U3100474 (discusscontribs)u3100474

This is coming along really well! Have you thought about including information relating to terror management theory? This articles explores terror management with a focus on the effect mortality salience has on our reactions to those who violate or uphold cultural values.:Rosenblatt, A., Greenberg, J., Solomon, S., Pyszczynski, T., & Lyon, D. (1989). Evidence for terror management theory: I. The effects of mortality salience on reactions to those who violate or uphold cultural values.

Using quotes[edit source]

Hey, remember when you directly quote something you need the page number that you got that quote from!! Sounds SUPER interesting! Can't wait to see what else you put up! :)

Hey, just wanted to give you some positive feedback on your book chapter. I really like how you have put a number of sub headings under a major heading. It makes it really clear what specific things you will be discussing, instead of having to search through a big paragraph of information :) (3083783ro (discusscontribs) 02:58, 4 October 2015 (UTC)= u3083783)

Hello. This looks likes an intense topic. It looks great so far as it is well structured and clear. Anti-radicalization information for high school age students comes out in the week or so, so maybe finding if there is enough could be helpful to link. All the best writing. --David James Stevenson (discusscontribs) 11:02, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
