2001: Caring Science and Psychiatric Nursing: Relationship and Emergence of Human Spirit
This presentation will focus on transforming self and system within the context of Watson’s Theory of Human Caring in practice and research. It will explore the relationship between Caring Science research and science of the Heart and emergence of human spirit, as relevant to psychiatric-mental health nursing practice and clinical inquiry. The Caritas Processes of the theory restore Love, Compassion, and Heart-centered spirit-to-spirit human intersubjective connections, for more meaningful and purposive practices and forms of inquiry. Experiential and intellectual experiences will be shared so participants can personally benefit. Exemplars will be offered to demonstrate how the theory is being implemented.
