I thought that we could take advantage of this and collaborate where possible.
If I find anything useful in my research I will share it with you and I will
most definitely mention your chapter within mine as i think that there will be
aspects that your chapter will cover better than mine and visa-versa.
Wish you luck with your chapter and I will be paying close attention :)
Hi Nicole! I found a journal article that I thought might be useful, it called 'The integrated motivational-volitional model of suicidal behavior' and can be found through the UC search database. Hope it helps! u3067591
I found this article that might be helpful for you. It focuses on the elderly, however it has a number of interesting theories on suicide

Hi Nicole, I really like the structure of your chapter! It might be cool to add in some quizzes towards the end, such as with the code:
There's more information relating to quiz structure at https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Help:Quiz
I also found a couple of articles that might be useful. Fombonne and colleagues (2001) conducted a longitudinal study looking at the risk of suicidality in adulthood in associated with adolescent depression. The article is called "The Maudsley long-term follow-up of child and adolescent depression" (doi: 10.1192/bjp.179.3.210). The second article is called "Detecting Suicide Risk in a Pediatric Emergency Department: Development of a Brief Screening Tool" by Horowitz and colleagues (2001) (doi: 10.1542/peds.107.5.1133) which has some information relating to suicidality in children as young as six.
This chapter looks really interesting, looking forward to reading it! I found a journal article that wasn't in your reference list and seems to have some relevant information about longitudinal prevalence and precursors of suicidal ideation and attempted suicide across three age groups (20-29, 40-49, and 60-69) while taking gender into consideration.

I think this chapter is going to be wonderful. It seems as though you have thoroughly researched this topic. I think it could be useful to write a short section on cross-cultural suicidality like a collectivist culture versus an individualistic culture. One interesting comparison could be looking at Japan's Aokigahara forest (known as the 'suicide forest') versus Australia. I look forward to reading your finished submission. --BB7897 (discuss • contribs) 22:01, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
The topic development has been reviewed according to the marking criteria. Written feedback is provided below, plus there is a general feedback page. Please also check the chapter's page history to check for editing changes made whilst reviewing the chapter plan. Responses to this feedback can be made by starting a new section below and/or contacting the reviewer. Topic development marks are available via UCLearn. Note that marks are based on what was available before the due date, whereas the comments may also be based on all material available at time of providing this feedback.
Theories look useful, however they are only useful to the extent that they help to understand how motivations for suicide tend to vary across the lifespan. It might make more sense to firstly describe how suicidality rates and motivation vary across the lifespace and then introduce theories that do the best job of accounting for the varying motives.
So, probably the primary structure for the book chapter could be the section currently called "Suicidality across the lifespan" which could become "Suicidality motivations across the lifespan".
The sections that follow seem to be somewhat tangential.
Overall, better to adopt a relatively simple structure focused directly on addressing the core topic (the sub-title) and linking out to other related, but not critical material.
Overall, this is a promising chapter which could be improved by focusing less on general suicidality and suicidality motivations and focusing more on the lifespan-specific motivations and interventions.
This chapter is well over the maximum word count. An obvious solution would be to reduce the general material about suicidality and focus on addressing the central question - how and why does suicidality vary across the lifespan. The other approach is simply to tighten the written expression to reduce use of unnecessary words (e.g., see my suggested copyedits).
What will this chapter cover? -> could become focus questions (as the Contents pretty much cover this structure already).
Theories are well addressed (in general) and then embedded/used with the specific lifestyle stages (good). It could be helpful to return to the theories and/or life stages to summarise which are most application to which life stage (e.g., in considering best prevention strategies at each stage).
Prevention strategies are addressed (good), however even better would be customise these more closely across the lifespan.
Relevant research is well reviewed and discussed in relation to theory, but lacks in synthesis. Rather than summarise one study after another, consider synthesising the common elements across several studies. This can reduce the word count and help to demonstrate greater depth of understanding.
When describing important research findings, consider including a bit more detail about the methodology and indicate the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
Overall, this is a basic, borderline sufficient presentation.
Remove the unit-specific, person-specific preamble - the idea is to make the presentation as broadly appealing to an international audience as possible. These local specifics can be put into the video description. Then the first 10 seconds can be used to provide a more engaging introduction.
Probably split slide 2 into 2 different slides (easier to view).
Hi, think this book chapter can benefit from adding detailed studies that supports the theories you have mentioned in order for the readers to know how applicable the theories are. However, I did like how you included ways on how to reduce suicidality at the end of your book chapter.
