- • Stein's theory of meaning through cognitive-behavioural process can be a useful guide for nurses and clients in many therapeutic settings, such as mental health centers, home health care, telebehavioural health care and outpatient clinics.
- • Both the nurse and the client can draw from this model to find answers in their lives when engaging in health and healing.
- • Through further research and practice, this new model can be tested in a variety of settings with many different types of clients to enhance their health and well-being.
This theory development was a partial fulfilment of doctoral course work at University of Colorado Denver Health Sciences Center. It is an interactive/integrated theory which can be utilized in multiple practice settings to promote growth of the client as well as the nurse. Tools were developed pertaining to this theory. A pilot study was accomplished at a local mental health centre.
