Compare key principles of relationship theories

Levinger’s Theory
Stimulus Value Role Theory
Key Principle:
1) Introduction or start up
2) Build up
3) Maintenance or Continuation
4) Deterioration
5) End of relationship
Key Principles:
This theory has only three stages.
1) Attraction or evaluation to commence a relationship)
2) Values (can be described as target)
3) Role (work together to build a relationship

In my opinion, the principles of relationship lies on the individual type of relationship in health and social care. We meet people from different walks in our life. We meet people for different reasons on different occasions. Therefore, principles are different from one type of relationship to another type of relationship. Although introduction or start up is the main basic principle for all types of relationship, but end of relationship may not be the principle for some types of relationship. Relationship can be broken down temporarily between participants (depending on factors), but may commence again sooner or later. An inherent (Genetic or DNA whichever you prefer to call) relationship can be deteriorated but never ends. According to law, rights prevail between or among participants even though relationship has ended. We do not terminate relationship declaring in a piece of paper. We just do not continue a relationship due to the factor influence deterioration. 

In health and social care, there are many different forms of relationship we observe. They are –

·         Personal relationship

·         Professional relationship

·         Inherent relationship

·         Social Relationship
Above mentioned relationships, may depend on relationship objectives between participant. An inherent relationship may not require following reciprocity in order to maintain the relationship where as a personal relationship or social relationship may depend only on reciprocity.
