    Acquaintances
    Selected Friends
    Significant Friends
    Intimate Friends

    Functional Relationships
    the relationships that help you meet needs that are NOT emotional needs
    rapport, and affection are possible, but not the main goal of the relationship
    personal feelings are not the focus

  • Roles and Responsibilities
    role
    the characters / positions / jobs you fill in life
    for every relationship in our lives, there are:
    roles we play
    behaviours we show
    responsibilities we have
  • The Social Exchange Theory
    in each relationship:
    there are costs we must pay, (C)
    AND there are benefits we receive (B)
    a healthy relationship is one where the benefits are greater than or equal to the costs (B >= C)
    one way to think about relationships
    economical way of thinking
  • The Social Exchange Theory
    exploit
    to use someone or something to get a benefit that is unfair or unbalanced
    exploitation describes a relationship where:
    one person benefits far more than the other
  • A request!
    Do your best not to participate in exploitation
    think about the best way to make your relationships as equal as possible
    if you do this, you will:
    have healthier relationships
    feel better about yourself (have more self esteem)
    make new relationships easier
