The following article includes Harry Stack Sullivan’s interpersonal theory and more specifically, his use of the “self-system.” This theory is mainly built out of the social context of human experiences, however congenital factors are not denied. The social element of human growth starts with a central state of interpersonal affiliation in infancy and endures throughout adulthood. Interpersonal connections are the significant requirements for standard human progression. Furthermore, destructive exhibitions can be explained by deviance, psychopathology, and immaturity.
