Seedling Project Breakdown & Sample Video:

Relational growth is intricately tied with processes of self-disclosure, reducing uncertainty, developing trust, creating a relational culture, and maturing through life cycles, etc. This assignment is designed to help the students understand and experience the “Coming Together” Stages of Relationship Development (Knapp et. al., 2014).
