Several changes were made in the conceptual system as it evolved from the Life Process Model to the Science of Unitary Man to the Science of Unitary Human Beings.
Furthermore, Leddy (2004) based her Human Energy Model on the basic ideas of Rogers' Science of Unitary Human Beings.
Thus, the starting point for evolution of theory development guided by the Science of Unitary Human Beings most likely is Rogers' three grand theories--the Theory of Accelerating Evolution (Rogers, 1980a, 1986, 1992b); the Theory of Rhythmical Correlates of Change (Rogers, 1980a, 1986, 1992b), which Butcher and Malinski (2010) called the Theory of Manifestations of Field Patterning in Unitary Human Beings; and the Theory of Paranormal Phenomena (Rogers, 1980a, 1986, 1992b), which Butcher and Malinski (2010) called the Theory of Emergence of Paranormal Phenomena.
The difference in this research study compared to the other studies, is that the primary purpose of this study was to uncover patterns describing adult substance users and family pattern in rehabilitation from the perspective of Rogers' science of unitary human beings using the unitary field pattern portrait research method.
Butcher developed an innovative descriptive methodological approach derived directly from the science of unitary human beings that is congruent with the theory's philosophical assumptions and the criteria for Rogerian research (Butcher, 1994, 1998, 2005, 2010).
A priori nursing science means that the UFPP is a theory-driven approach to inquiry and the postulates and principles of the Science of Unitary Human Beings explicitly guides all aspects of inquiry, from identifying concepts appropriate for inquiry, to how the concept is initially defined and conceptualized, to what questions are asking of participants during data collection, and finally how the data are interpreted.
The Science of Unitary Human Beings does not recognize chronological age as a valid indication of development.
Efforts to confirm the relationships predicted by Rogers' Science of Unitary Human Beings were hampered by these problems.
This experience fostered further understanding of Rogers' Science of Unitary Human Beings
, as well as adding an important theoretical dimension to my professional and personal growth.
How do we incorporate the practice of the Science of Unitary Human Beings
into a practice arena often dedicated to a particulate medical model?
And had she been alive to write her next book, I am confident that the science of unitary human beings
(SUHB) would have changed considerably.
While these ideas do not purely reflect the postulates and principles of the Science of Unitary Human Beings
they do bear similarities.
