1. Source is reliable because it is written by a highly educated author. The author has a Ph.D. in Philosophy and is certified in Psychological Counselling Techniques. The author has also won various awards for numerous web sites and articles that he has published on the internet. I feel this a credible source, and plan on using it in my article.[1] --70.130.177.118 (talk) 06:01, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

2. Source is reliable in my opinion. While no author is listed, the article has specific cases and examples that lend themselves to the subject matter. I believe them to be accurate, and see no reason to believe the information is lacking. The information provided lines up well with other sources I have identified. Also, the site is a .org which tend to be more reliable. I plan on using this source, and believe it will be beneficial to my effort in creating a btter article.[2] --70.130.177.118 (talk) 06:01, 20 November 2011 (UTC)


Possible article additions: There are two main types of isolation within psycholology, emotional and social. Focusing on the emotional side, it can be a very beneficial coping response from the body. However, if it becomes habitual, the coping mechanism can become self-defeating and dangerous. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.130.177.118 (talk) 06:08, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

working to improve article[edit]

As part of my psychology 430 class at the University of Kentucky I am currently working to improve on the article about isolation. I have access to many scholarly journals through being a student at UK. I have begun the editing process and have collected numerous reliable sources. Any additional help or information would be appreciated.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Peytonic1 (talkcontribs) 22:45, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Psych 430: Peyton, you have a very good lead paragraph. It gets to the point without confusing the reader. The Evidence paragraph is also very good. It's easy to understand and you have great mechanics. Maybe try adding in a couple blue hyperlinks to certain terms that non-psychology students may not be familiar with. I don't know if you had planned on adding any other sections, but what you have now looks good. Your references look good, but maybe try adding one or two from more recent years. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DanaSchmutte (talkcontribs) 16:30, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
