Peer relationships can determine an individual’s life path. From childhood friends, to romantic teenager partnerships, peers are often pertinent to the formation of self growth and development.
Social and emotional growth are connected, and both play a role in mental health. When developing close relationships with peers, individuals are developing socially. When these relationships become negative, and an individual feels the need to conform under pressure, therapy can help provide support for self-individuation. Poor peer relations can negatively affect development.
