When it comes to interpersonal relationships, research shows that stages emerge and develop in discernible stages (Knapp et. al, 2014).
Relational growth is intricately tied with processes of self-disclosure, reducing uncertainty, developing trust, creating a relational culture, and maturing through life cycles, etc.
This assignment is designed to help the students understand and experience the “Coming Together” Stages of Relationship Development (Knapp et. al., 2014).
Components for the project:
- Daily journal entries discussing relationships with partner and “child”
