Transcript of Joan Riehl- Sisca : The Riehl Interaction Model

Joan Riehl- Sisca : The Riehl Interaction Model
The model allows for comprehensive care of the client. It is based on symbolic interaction
The nurse must observe all nonverbal communication or symbols such as grimaces of pain without a verbal complaint

Symbols allow for an insight into values and ways of acting. They are often not isolated but emerge in complex clusters.

5 Philosophical Premises
Presence of a Society
network of interacting individuals who share cultures, meanings, and values
Internal Socialization
takes place in stages as a developing infant
External Socialization
occurs in the general culture, within subcultures
may be subtle: of cultural expectations, personal meaning, and values
Self-Concept Construct
The nurses uses the sense of self in interpersonal interaction to assist the client in defining the situation

The nurse must assess and interpret the patient's action and then makes prediction's based on the client's behavior

The structure allows a functional relationship and utilizes physiological, sociocultural, situational, psychological, and environmental aspects

Examples of the Riehl Interaction Model are the self concept of:
a woman needing a mastectomy
a child with diabetes
The nurse may interact with the Client using FANCAP in order to gauge his or her wellness level.
The assessment tool is FANCAP
"" Experience without theory is blind but theory without experience is mere intellectual play""
- Riehl
Riehl was born in Davenport, Iowa but grew up in Chicago suburbs.
Riehl attended the University of Illinois where she attained her BSN

The nurse must examine symbolic solutions or actions and assess the advantages and disadvantages according to the values of the client and individual

The nurse and patient must have an exchange of information that the nurse can use to improve the physical and mental health of the patient
