Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2018/Social anxiety
Good topic choice, very relevant to a lot of people. Good amount of information on your page, however would it be beneficial to dive into different reasons for social anxiety eg bullying, domestic violence etc? Good luck--U3158773 (discuss • contribs) 01:59, 31 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi, I love that you're doing this topic it's a great one to explore. Although I would suggest maybe having a section on how social anxiety influences emotions? That would make the topic link closer to the subject of emotions as that's what heading it is under. If you do decide to include that, I found a study on social anxiety and positive emotions which may be a good start: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.468.8688&rep=rep1&type=pdf good luck on the chapter :) --U3160212 (discuss • contribs) 04:48, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
I had a read through your chapter and it looks great so far. I think starting it with a case study is a good idea, but it might be a smoother transition if you lead with the overview and then explore those ideas further within the case study. Just so the research is fresh in everyone’s mind while they're reading a practical example. Besides that, I came across this chapter from 2016 that would work well in your ‘see also’ section: https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Motivation_and_emotion/Book/2016/Public_speaking_anxiety. Also, there’s some interesting research into private vs. public self-consciousness that might be relevant to this chapter. --U3122470 (discuss • contribs) 22:01, 2 September 2018 (UTC)
I've got a couple references that I hope might be helpful for causes and treatment options. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0887618512000370 looks at the effect of parenting on the development of SA, https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/behaviour-change/article/role-of-environmental-factors-in-the-aetiology-of-social-anxiety-disorder-a-review-of-the-theoretical-and-empirical-literature/95A253CA5E3F40E0CA14CF3DA3590133 looks at more general causes, and https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2215036614703293 compares potential treatment options. As a few other feedback points, I really liked your use of the case study, very effective for getting the reader to engage and relate to the concept of feeling nervous in social situations. Re the overview, I've noticed you've got two spellings of aetiology/etiology - you use the former later in the page as well. Also given not all readers with be Australian, if you could broaden your article/comment about prevalence in Aus to something more global that might be better. Hope something in there is helpful. Good luck! Cheers, Dot--Foley.d (discuss • contribs) 01:42, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
Bridie I came across this website/resource when doing an assignment on social anxiety last semester https://crufad.org/ It was very informative and definitely worth checking out as it has lots of practice resources for both professionals and people who are living with anxiety.

Social factors of SAD[edit source]
Your book chapter looks great and almost complete! However, I noticed you haven't completed your section on 'Social factors', and you have included: traumatic social events, traumatic life events and parenting style as your sub-headings under this.
In semester one this year, I completed the unit 'Psychopathology' and our case study was on SAD. I thought I would share with you what I wrote down for the social factors for the aetiology of SAD, and hopefully this helps - as it covers all three of those factors which you mentioned: traumatic social events, traumatic life events and parenting styles. Feel free to use the research I have gathered and incorporate it into your chapter, I have put the references below aswell.
"Excessive parental criticism may reduce an individual’s self-confidence, whereby they learn to be overly concerned with others opinions. Moreover, social withdrawal, reduced self-confidence and personal presentation concerns have been shown to elicit rejection from peers, worsening symptoms (Neal & Edelmann, 2003). Additionally, if a child exhibits withdrawn features this often elicits protective behaviours from the parent, maintaining social withdrawal (Hudson & Rapee, 2001). Childhood social adversities may also play a role, as adults with SAD often recall memories of humiliation/bullying from peers (Hackmann, Clark, & Mcmanus, 2000). A history of these social adversities accompanied with minimal instruction on how to effectively deal with them, may lead to SAD (Rapee & Spence, 2004). Adverse life events such as divorce, disability of a family member, or rejection from a parental figure increases stress, which has been shown to increase the risk (Festa & Ginsburg, 2011). A critique of these studies is that they lack external validity, as they are based on individualistic cultures. SAD traits are more accepted in collectivist cultures (Chen, Rubin, & Boshu, 1995)."
Also, if you have any questions feel free to ask me by replying to this! I remember quite a bit about SAD.
I also italicised your 'figure 1' and 'figure 2' to follow APA 6th edition guidelines for images.
