Senior project[edit]

I am editing this article as part of a senior project. I plan to add sections that focus more on psychology and expand on anxiety. I also plan to find verifiable sources to make the article credible. (Klcopus (talk) 14:43, 21 February 2013 (UTC))

Welcome Klcopus! Please remember that Wikipedia is not an academic paper or essay. Wikipedia articles should not be based on WP:primary sources, but on reliable, published secondary sources (for instance, journal reviews and professional or advanced academic textbooks) and, to a lesser extent, on tertiary sources (such as undergraduate textbooks). WP:MEDRS describes how to identify reliable sources for medical information, which is a good guideline for many psychology articles as well.

I have been working on this article and making modifications in my sandbox. I have added sections and greatly expanded the article. I found verifiable sources. Hoping to improve the article so it can be a credible psychology article.(Klcopus (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 14:15, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

I posted what I have been working on for my senior project. I added sections that focused more on the psychology aspect of basic anxiety. I also added some background information on Karen Horney and what guided her theories of basic anxiety. I also found verifiable sources. (Klcopus (talk) 13:55, 28 March 2013 (UTC))


Sources mentioned in this article are as incomplete as they can be. No mention of book title, year or page number. I have twice asked editor Klcopus to complete the sources but she has not done this. When googling part of the quote in the first section: "direct or indirect domination, indifference, erratic behavior, lack of respect for the child's individual needs" the first result is The quote here in Basic anxiety starts in the exact same way as the quote on the website ". . . direct or indirect domination" and also finishes at the same point. Quite a coincidence. Lova Falk talk 16:53, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
PS I now replaced the source "Horney" with this website - even though it is not a reliable secondary source. But it seems to be the source that has been used. Lova Falk talk 17:02, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Eventual rewrite, please?[edit]

Once user Klcopus' school project is done, this article will be in need of a rewrite to make it conform to Wikipedia's internal standards for encyclopedia content. (talk) 19:57, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
