Give specific examples to support your claim and support your reasoning with information from the text and other course materials.
7. Psychologists interested in the dynamics of social media have become interested in the meaning and reasoning behind the phenomenon of selfies, or self-portrait photographs.

Support your reasoning with information from the text and other course materials.

What is your opinion about the reason why diagnosis for ADHD has risen in recent decades? Do you feel that this is an accurate diagnosis of children today, or do you agree with individuals who claim that it largely misdiagnosed?
