Apa Style Question

I’m stuck on a Writing question and need an explanation.


Part 1

Discussion Prompt 1-3 Paragraphs

Discussion Prompt 1

Considerable controversy has risen in recent years over the increased diagnosis of children with ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder). 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? What are possible issues that may arise from over-or underdiagnosis? Support your reasoning with information from the text and other course materials.

Discussion Prompt 2

Regardless of what social psychologists claim are the characteristics of attraction, why do you think people believe that opposites attract? Is this true, or are there underlying similarities that the two individuals are just unaware of? How can having diverse or opposing opinions both enhance and limit a relationship? Provide examples to support your claims. Support your reasoning with information from the text and other course materials.

Part 2

Obedience, Compliance, Conformity, and Group Think

For this assignment visit The Stanford Prison Experiment. Read through the story and watch the videos as you reflect on the phenomenon of group think and the actions of compliance and conformity. In your paper, address the following:

Define obedience, compliance, conformity, and group think in your own words and provide an example for each that was not presented in your course materials.

Weigh in on your thoughts regarding the use of compliance techniques. What are the moral and ethical implications of using such techniques?

Weigh in on this question from the website: Was it ethical to do this study? Was it right to trade the suffering experienced by participants for the knowledge gained by the research?

Incorporate at least one source in your paper. Use APA format to style your paper and to cite and reference your sources.

Your paper should be 2—3 pages long, in addition to a title page and a reference page.
