The chapter guides readers through the underlying social processes of mentoring. It provides an understanding of the influence of thoughts; feelings and behaviour in social contacts on the initiation and maintenance of mentoring relationships. The chapter describes how the concept of self fosters mentoring and goes on to explain the role of social perception in the formation of the relationship. It then examines mentoring as a social learning phenomenon and considers the social exchange perspective of mentoring relationships.
