Friendship

Module Overview

Originated by Prof. Felicia Megret

Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between people. Friendship is a stronger form of interpersonal bond than an association and it has been studied in academic fields such as communication, sociology, social psychology, anthropology, and philosophy. Various academic theories of friendship have been proposed, including social exchange theory, equity theory, relational dialectics, and attachment styles. Although there are many forms of friendship, some of which may vary from place to place, certain characteristics are present in many types of bond. Such characteristics include affection, kindness, love, virtue, sympathy, empathy, honesty, altruism, mutual understanding and compassion, enjoyment of each other’s company, trust, and the ability to be oneself, express one’s feelings, and make mistakes without fear of judgment from the friend. In this module we look at what friendships mean to an individual and how to nurture friendships through positive behaviours.

We will explore

  • Why is frienship good for you?
