Well done so far on responding to the documentary with quotes, examples, etc. related to to social psychology - this is already a good example of how I'm hoping we can use this. FYI, from this link: Ghosts of Rwanda, you can also find a link to the full transcript on the PBS website which could help in completing the quotes, etc. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 08:41, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
- Also, you mentioned a wikipedia link - I was wondering which one - was it w:Rwandan Genocide? -- Jtneill - Talk - c 08:42, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Ghosts of Rwanda reflection
I read your reflection to Ghosts of Rwanda... A quote from a Hungarian writer came to my mind (unfortunately I forgot his name, so I just paraphrase it). It says:
When they (Nazis) came for people from our street I didn't say nothing, when they came for my neighbor, I didn't say nothing. Now they came for me, and there is no one to say a word for me... --Gbaor 12:15, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
- "After reading the Wikipedia link..." - do you know which link that was? Could you find it and add it? -- Jtneill - Talk - c 04:52, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
Re: speak our minds and thoughts
I think it is better to speak out, you feel better and will also surely search your environment regarding that. Who knows, perhaps you can also influence others with that behaviour ? Change (of society) doesn't happen from alone. Some must start, ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat (try) 12:14, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
Hey D, Just read your entry re: relationships and how they tie in with mental illness. I think you've raised a really interesting point there. I work in mental health and there appears, in our society, to be a far more positive prognosis for people who have a strong support network around them then for people who have no one or who have isolated their loved ones due to their illness. I dont know if your aware but this weekend the Mental Health Foundation of the ACT is running the Festival of Belonging which is about just this. The festival is to give awareness that people living with a mental illness often feel isolated and disconnected from the community. This can be for many reasons, not the least of which feeling as though they don’t belong. Having a well-developed sense of belonging is essential to people’s mental health as social isolation is a leading cause of depression. Research also consistently shows that having a sense of connection to other people reduces the likelihood of suicide. Check out the link for more infoBryony 06:12, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
E-portfolio Feedback for Dskrzecz
Thanks for participating in the social psychology unit. I have read your e-portfolio and have provided some feedback below. The marks will put be posted on WebCT 24 or 25 November. I will email the discussion list when they are available. Feel free to let me know if you have any comments, concerns, questions. I also welcome your feedback here.
Regular engagement in almost all lectures and tutorials is evident (not the Australian Zeitgeist?); some limited referencing of textbook; 61 edits spread throughout the semester. (CR-DI)
Reasonably good depth around most topics. Use of links was helpful (although these could have been more user friendly by using names for the links). Perhaps closer correspondence between reflections and social psychological theory/research could have been made e.g., no references were used. (DI)
P.S. If you are dissatisfied with the marking and feedback, please see the marking dispute process.
