Social Development and Building Relationships

Social development is the way that individuals become INDEPENDANT and form FRIENDSHIPS and RELATIONSHIPS with others.

Friendships: These involve learning to value others and developing the skills needed to make friends with individuals and with groups of people.

Relationships: These involve developing the skills to interact with other people in FORMAL (for example, with colleagues at work) and INFORMAL situations (for example, within a family). They also cover intimate relationships in adulthood.

Independance: this involves doing things by oneslef and making decisiones without relying on others.
