Hi - I think our topics have a bit in common - how biofeedback impacts emotional appraisal. Perhaps some of Arnold and Lazarus' theories may be handy in exploring this topic? It'd be great if we could trade a few ideas about the biofeedback side of things. --U3100675 (discuss • contribs) 09:01, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
Hi I have found a useful article online through the university library EBSCOhost website which will be helpful for your book chapter. It is titled: "Blushing and the Exposed Self: Darwin Revisited. I think it will be an excellent starting point for you because it discusses how originally blushing did not receive much attention in psychological research as it was assumed it represented only embarrassment. However, since this time it has been further explored and found to be associated with other expressions of emotion. It also explores the blush as a signal and includes some excellent examples of blushing between two individuals despite differences in their personal characteristics. These examples may be useful if you are considering including case studies within your chapter. It also discusses some theories of blushing and implications of these. Here is a link to the webpage if you are interested: http://web.a.ebscohost.com.ezproxy.canberra.edu.au/ehost/detail/detail?vid=4&sid=a195d6d2-f359-4e4c-9e02-c4e0d9469638%40sessionmgr4008&hid=4204&bdata=#AN=4549906&db=a9h
I hope you find it helpful! Good luck! --LeoDean1993 (discuss • contribs) 04:46, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
Was the Darwin (1872) source directly consulted? If not, don't cite it (or use a secondary citation).
After starting off promisingly, the Theory section seems to drift off-course without obvious linking/transition to social anxiety and then to Lazarus' unnamed theory which isn't described in relation to blushing. This part could benefit from more drafting.
It would probably be helpful to conceptually distinguish between social anxiety disorder and social phobia (and if/how they are related to blushing).
The Conclusion could be expanded to include a better summary with take-home messages.
Some restructuring was done to try to improve the flow - several of the subheadings were added as wiki headings.
Add bullet-points for See also and External links.
Tables and/or Figures are used effectively.
Some links to Wikipedia and/or Wikiversity articles were added - these only need to be added on first mention of a keyword; use plain text for the keyword subsequently. More links to Wikipedia for other key terms should be added.
Quiz questions are used effectively to encourage reader engagement - great set of questions.
Spelling and grammar is generally excellent.
Check/correct APA for direct quotes.
The APA style for the reference list is very good; remove issue numbers for paginated journals.
