NETWORK

was first defined by German-born psycho-analyst Sigmund Heinrich Foulkes (1868 - 1976), who implied that an individuals network, otherwise known as their day-to-day interactions with other individuals and their relationships within an environment will play an important and empirical role in the production of any mental health and psychological disorders that individual then develops at a later point.

NETWORK: "When opening an address book, the names of people you see are examples of networks with you possess and maintain, these interactions have highlighted as empirical to day to day life."
