dyad The dyad, a group of two members, is the smallest possible social group: if one person opts out the group ceases to exist. Two people can form an intimacy not found in larger groups, but the dyad also involves other basic elements of social exchange, such as rivalry, reciprocity, and power. See also TRIAD.
