What does the word ‘Relationship’ mean to you? Are you just embarking on a new relationship either personally or professionally? Are you dealing with the end of a relationship due to a change in circumstance, or loss? Are you wondering who replaced your little angel with an hormone raging teenager and how long will it be before they ‘like’ you again? Have you become a carer for a family member that has changed the relationship you had? Are you new to parenting and don’t know where the old you fits into the world now?
This course will look a social relationships in the modern world and how they impact on our health and well-being, identity and happiness. We will explore the types of relationships that we engage in such as intrapersonal (our relationship with ourselves), interpersonal (our relationship with others): family; intimate; community and business. Each week we will focus on the psychological points of view related to the patterns that relationships take over the stages of a person’s life, and the impact from the development of, changes in, or deterioration of, relationships. We will consider cross-cultural, age, gender and social environments to begin to understand one’s own relationship with oneself and others.
