Week 2: Integrative and Transformative Paradigms
This week, we’ll discuss selected nursing theories and conceptual models that may be categorized as integrative or transformative. A common characteristic of the integrative category is seen in the theorists’ views of the individual as a system that is interacting and being influenced by environmental challenges. A common characteristic of the transformative category is seen in the theorists’ views of the individual and environment that reflect a mutual response to challenges that is continually changing and evolving.
Review a list of all items due this week in your course syllabus.
Lesson 1: Integrative and Transformative Paradigms
There are three theories that we will examine as exemplars of the integrative paradigm. These theories are: Johnson’s Behavioral System Model, Orem’s Self-Care Deficit Nursing Theory, and Roy’s Adaptation Model.
The transformative paradigm builds upon an understanding that the relationship between the individual and the environment continually exists as the lowest common denominator for interactions. Consequently, responses to change and evolving activities occur mutually between both the individual and the environment. There are two theories that we shall examine as examples of the transformative paradigm. These theories are: Parse’s Humanbecoming Paradigm and Newman’s Theory of Health as Expanding Consciousness.
