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==

Few last minute suggestions[edit source]

You could provide some internal links to other wiki pages for words like depression to assist the research of others. Including images within the large paragraphs of text will help to break it up for the reader I have also made some very minor spelling/grammar edits which you are welcome to reverse. --Jessann95 (discusscontribs) 01:53, 23 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

external link[edit source]

Hi there, I have added an external link to PANDSI (post- and antenatal depression support information). They are a great organisation. --JazNF (discusscontribs) 07:00, 23 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

  3. Overall, this is a strong chapter which incorporates a balanced, critical overview of relevant theory and research and makes effective use of the wiki environment.
  4. Overall, this is a fantastic chapter which makes effective use of the wiki environment and provides an integrated, indepth, but very readable synthesis of psychological theory and research on the topic.
  5. By my calculation, the chapter is over the maximum word count.

Theory[edit source]

  1. In the Overview, establish why the topic is important.
  2. The Overview establishes the importance of the topic.
  3. Engaging Overview - perhaps it could be improved by outlining the major theories/research - or stating the chapter's focus questions - or explaining what will be covered.
  4. Abbreviate the general theoretical material and provide references and links to further information. This would allow more space to apply the theories to the specific topic in more detail.
  5. Examples or case studies would be helpful.
  6. Several helpful examples or case studies were provided.
  7. The case study(ies) is(are) helpful.
  8. The Conclusion is weak; offers a succint summary and emphasise take-away messages that relate to the book theme.
  9. The Conclusion offers a succint summary and emphasises solutions.

Research[edit source]

  1. What is the prevalence of prenatal depression? (not stated in the chapter?)
  2. The Psychological Theories section considers some generic psychological treatment approaches, but doesn't explain any theory about why women may be particularly vulnerable to PD during pregnancy.
  3. Some statements are unreferenced (e.g., see the [factual?] tags)
  4. Why is massage therapy suggested as a key treatment for PD? (Explain). Is this treatment approach for depression particularly unique to PD - or common to different depressions?
  5. When describing important research studies, provide some indication of the nature of the method.
  6. When discussing important research findings, indicate the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
