Interactional Phases of Human-to-Human Relationship Model

Original Encounter
Emerging Identities

Seven basic Concepts of Human- to- Human Relationship Theory
1. Suffering- an experience that varies in intensity, duration and depth
2. Meaning- reason attributed to a person
3. Nursing- which helps a person find meaning in the experience of illness and suffering
4. Hope- faith that can and will be a change that would bring something better with it.
5. Communication, which is "a strict necessity for good nursing care."
6. Self-therapy- ability to use one's own personality
7. Intellectual approach

Major Concepts
The theory explains the purpose of nursing is to help others identify their felt difficulties.

Nurses should apply principles of human relations to the problems that arise at all levels of experience.

Peplau's theory explains the phases of interpersonal process, roles in nursing situations and methods for studying nursing as an interpersonal process.

Nursing is therapeutic in that it is a healing art, assisting an individual who is sick or in need of health care.
Person - A developing organism that tries to reduce anxiety caused by needs.

Environment - Existing forces outside the organism and in the context of culture
Health - A word symbol that implies forward movement of personality and other ongoing human processes

Nursing - A significant therapeutic interpersonal process.
Four Major Concepts
1. Individual
Have basic needs that are component of health.
The theory presents the patient as a sum of parts with biopsychosocial needs.

2. Environment
Settings in which an individual learns unique pattern for living.
All external conditions and influences that affect life and development.

3. Health
Definition based on individual’s ability to function independently as outlined in the 14 components.

4. Nursing
Temporarily assisting an individual who lacks the necessary strength, will and knowledge to satisfy 1 or more of 14 basic needs.
Assists and supports the individual in life activities and the attainment of independence.
Nursing Metaparadigms
- the time when relationship begins
- the nurse and patient perceives each others uniqueness
- the ability to share in the person’s experience
- the ability to predict the behavior of the individual and to perceive his thinking and feelings.
- when the nurse wants to lessen the cause of patient’s suffering.
- intellectual approach combined with therapeutic use of self
- Rapport is described as nursing interventions that lessens the patient’s suffering.
Nursing Research

One study by O’Connor, Wicker and Germino, which is nearly related to some of Travelbee’s ideas, discovers how individuals who were recently diagnosed with cancer described their personal search for meaning. The results of this study make known that the search for meaning seems to be both a spiritual and psychosocial process. The researchers acknowledged nursing interventions that would support this process. No other theory of Travelbee that would create further development is available.
• Selection of appropriate professional assistance
• Patient begins to have a feeling of belonging and a capability of dealing with the problem which decreases the feeling of helplessness and hopelessness
