Feedback[edit source]

Hey! I found this Ted Talk / Article on how to deal and cope with sorrow. I hope it gives some helpful insight!

Hey! I found this really interesting article about chronic sorrow. It gives a good definition and also compares chronic sorrow to prolonged grief and prolonged depression which may be helpful in your section that highlights the differences between sadness and sorrow. --Taylor Mamukic (discusscontribs) 23:44, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Hey guys thanks for your comments! These both really assisted and were added to my reference list. --U3202324 (discusscontribs) 05:58, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Heading casing[edit source]

Crystal Clear app ktip.svg
FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for sentence casing. For example, the wikitext should be:

== Cats and mice ==

rather than

== Cats and Mice ==

Suggestion for quizzes[edit source]

Hey ! i found these helpful flashcards that might be useful for your quizzes. I attempted them straight after reading your page and felt your page was very informative, well done ! U3177123 (discusscontribs) 21:18, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for this. I'm not too sure how they link into my page though- perhaps you've linked into the wrong page? All the best, Anubhandary (discusscontribs)

Hi, I'm not sure if this is meant for my page either... These quizzes don't seem to relate to my content. Thanks anyway! TaraMaland

Images[edit source]

Hey, I think it would be really interesting

to add a few images into your chapter. I would be super interested to see what kind of relevant images you could find that really add to the information you're delivering! Goodluck :) --taramaland (discuss contribs) 10:00, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Article suggestion[edit source]

I have found an interesting article about how sorrow, alongside other emotions are crucial to maintaining cognitive balance. --Jackson McNee (discusscontribs) 00:28, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is a promising chapter that does a reasonably good job of applying psychological theory and research to a real-world problem.
  2. The main area for improvement is that many claims are unreferenced (e.g., see the [factual?] tags), so the chapter demonstrates insufficient linkage to the best available peer-reviewed academic literature about the topic, especially for 3rd year undergraduate psychology.
  3. For additional feedback, see the following comments and these copyedits.

Theory[edit source]

  1. Relevant theory is reasonably well explained. Sorrow is considered from several perspectives. A critical perspective is evident.
  2. There are some contradictory descriptions of the relationship between sorrow and sadness. For example, sorrow is described as not as severe as sadness, but then also as more than sadness.

Research[edit source]

  1. Overall, this chapter provides a basic overview of relevant research.
  2. When describing important research findings, consider including a bit more detail about the methodology and indicating the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
  3. Greater emphasis on major reviews and/or meta-analyses would be helpful.

Written expression[edit source]

  1. Written expression
    1. Overall, the quality of written expression is basic.
    2. Use 3rd person perspective rather than 1st (e.g., "we") or 2nd person (e.g., "you")[1] in the main text, although 1st or 2nd person perspective can work well for case studies or feature boxes.
  2. Layout
    1. See earlier comments about heading casing.
  3. Learning features
    1. Excellent use of embedded in-text interwiki links to Wikipedia articles.
    2. No use of embedded in-text links to related book chapters. Embedding in-text links to related book chapters helps to integrate this chapter into the broader book project.
    3. Problematic use of image(s). Uploaded images appear to have been falsely claimed as author's own work. Deletion has been requested.
    4. No use of table(s).
    5. Good use of feature box(es).
    6. Basic use of quiz(zes).
  4. Grammar
    1. The grammar for many sentences could be improved (e.g., see the [grammar?] tags).
    2. Check and correct use of ownership apostrophes (e.g., individuals vs. individual's vs individuals').[2].
    3. Abbreviations
      1. Abbreviations (such as e.g., i.e.., etc.) should only be used inside parentheses.
  5. Spelling
    1. Spelling can be improved (e.g., see the [spelling?] tags). Spell-checking tools are available in most internet browsers and word processing software packages.
  6. Proofreading
    1. More proofreading is needed to fix typos and bring the quality of written expression closer to a professional standard.
    2. Remove unnecessary capitalisation.
    3. Replace double spaces with single spaces.
  7. APA style
    1. Do not capitalise the names of disorders, therapies, theories, etc..
    2. Use double (not single) quotation marks "to introduce a word or phrase used as an ironic comment, as slang, or as an invented or coined expression; use quotation marks only for the first occurrence of the word or phrase, not for subsequent occurrences" (APA 7th ed., 2020, p. 159).
    3. Numbers under 10 should be written in words (e.g., five); numbers 10 and over should be written in numerals (e.g., 10).
    4. Direct quotes need page numbers.
    5. Figures and tables
      1. Refer to each Table and Figure using APA style (e.g., check and correct capitalisation).
    6. References are not in full APA style. For example:
      1. Check and correct use of capitalisation.

Social contribution[edit source]

  1. ~17 logged social contributions, almost all after the original due for book chapters (so not much use to the authors) and relatively minor in nature. Most contributions were without direct links to evidence, so unable to easily verify and assess.
