A Positive Outlook on Dependency

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

In the past, dependency has been almost exclusively discussed as a harmful phenomenon. Recently, more research has started to mention the existence of positive interdependency. However, the characteristics of beneficial dependency have not yet been identified. This project aims to begin this work. It is proposed that beneficial dependency will be highly correlated with Social Safety while detrimental dependency will be correlated with Perceived Burdensomeness.
