Intimacy Cognitive and Biological development: Roles in Intimacy As abstract thinking develops, relationships move from an emphasis on concrete features (e.g.,  shared activities) to a focus on abstract elements (trust, warmth, intimacy). Perspective taking and deductive reasoning facilitate sophisticated behavior in relationships. Biological reorganizations foster interest in sexual behavior, and motivate changes in social  behavior. Harry Stack Sullivan: Theory of interpersonal Development Development is focused around satisfaction of core interpersonal needs. Satisfaction of these needs results in feelings of security and contentment. Failures in interpersonal domains are associated with anxiety. Across development, interpersonal needs change Early adolescence: chumship Middle adolescence: platonic relationships with opposite gender Late adolescence: romantic, perhaps sexual, relationships

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
