Facilitating growth and development: a paradigm case for modeling and role-modeling.

Abstract

This article describes an example of a paradigm case for the nursing theory of modeling and role-modeling. A synthesis of the mid-range theoretical linkages of basic need satisfaction, object attachment, and growth and developmental processes derived from the theory and paradigm are described. These theoretical linkages guide the assessment, implementation, and evaluation of the nursing care and provide the basis for describing the dynamic nurse-client relationship.
