Association AnalysisIndividuals are involved in a wide variety of very different types of relationships, all of which may be considered under the umbrella term relationship. Each type of relationship requires significant psychological adjustment to ensure that mental and physical health are maintained (or improved, in some cases.) As defined in your text, an intimate relationship is characterized by sharing of inner most feelings. Physical intimacy implies a sexual relationship. Both sharing of feelings and physical intimacy require steps for healthy adjustment. This is true whether the individual is single, married, divorced, or cohabitating.Levinger proposed a model to help describe the steps involved in what is called the ABC(DE) Model. He suggests that individuals move from attraction (A) through building (B), and then continuation (C). In some cases, the relationship declines and the individual goes through the steps of deterioration (D) and ending (E).This Discussion asks you to explore several types of relationships using Levinger?s Model as well as to consider the adjustment issues that individuals in these types of relationships might face.To prepare for this Discussion:?
