Peplau's Psychodynamic Nursing

Psychodynamic Nursing

Theoretical Sources

- borrowed from behavioral science—psychological model


Use of Empirical Evidence

Maslow – people are motivated to attain self-actualization

Miller – personality theory, adjustment mechanisms, psychotherapy and principles of social learning

Pavlov’s – stimulus-response model influenced the principles of Miller’s social learning

Sullivan – the pioneer of modern psychiatry and includes cultural and social determiners to Freud’s interpersonal relationship model


MAJOR CONCEPTS AND DEFINITIONS

Psychodynamic nursing describe the dynamic relationship between a nurse and a patient.

Psychodynamic nursing is being able to understand one’s own behavior to help others identify felt difficulties, and to apply principles of human relations to the problems that arise at all levels of experience.

Peplau challenged psychiatric nursing to thrive in the new millennium in four central areas:

- the nurse-patient relationship

- engagement in evidence-based practice

- competence in information technology

- leadership in shifting the health care paradigm to community-based delivery.



NURSE-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP

(Interpersonal Relations Theory)

She described four phases of this relationship:

  1. Orientation - in which the person and the nurse mutually identify the person's problem
  2. Identification - in which the person identifies with the nurse, thereby accepting help
  3. Exploitation - in which the person makes use of the nurse's help
  4. Resolution - in which the person accepts new goals and frees herself or himself from the relationship.


Orientation Phase

1. When the nurse and patient first meet is known as the orientation phase.

2. This is a time when the patient and nurse come to know each other as people and each other’s expectations and roles are understood.

3. The patient at this time needs to recognize and understand their difficulty and the need for help, be assisted to plan to use the professional services offered, and harness the energy derived from felt needs.

4. It may be expected that the patient will test limits in order to establish the integrity of the nurse.

5. The tasks of this phase are to build trust, rapport, establish a therapeutic environment, assess the patient’s strengths and weakness and establish a mode of communication acceptable to both patient and nurse.

6. When the patient can begin to identify problems the relationship progresses to the working phase.


Identification Phase

1. Trust begins to develop and the patient begins to respond selectively to persons who seem to offer help.

2. The patient begins to identify with the nurse and identify problems, which can be worked on.

3. The meaning behind feelings and behavior of the nurse and patient are explored. Peplau states that when a nurse permits patients to express what they feel, and still get all of the nursing that is needed, then patients can undergo illness as an experience that reorients feelings and strengthens positive forces in the personality.

4. The tasks of this phase are to develop clarity about the patient's preconceptions and expectations of nurses and nursing, develop acceptance of each other, explore feelings, identify problems and respond to people who can offer help.

5. In particular the nurse assists in the expression of needs and feelings, assists during stress, shows acceptance and provides information.

6. The nurse and patient may make plans for the future but the implementation of the plan signifies the beginning of the exploitation phase of the working relationship.


Exploitation Phase

1. The patient realistically exploits all of the services available to them on the basis of self interest and need.

2. The nurse assists the patient in their efforts to strike a balance between the needs for dependence and independence.

3. The plan of action is implemented and evaluated. The patient may display a change in manner of communicating, as new skills in interpersonal relationships and problem solving are developed.

4. The nurse continues to assess and assists in meeting new needs as they emerge.


Resolution Phase

1. The resolution phase involves the gradual freeing from identification with helping persons, and the generation and strengthening of ability to stand alone, eventually leading to the mutual termination of the relationship.

2. The patient abandons old needs and aspires to new goals.

3. She or he continues to apply new problem solving skills and maintains changes in style of communication and interaction.

4. Resolution includes planning for alternative sources of support, problem prevention, and the patient’s integration of the illness experience.


Psychological Mothering:

  1. The patient is accepted unconditionally to satisfy his needs.
  2. There is recognition of and in response to the patient’s readiness for growth and his initiative.
  3. Power in the relationships shifts to the patient as the patient is able to delay gratification and to invest in goal achievement.


NURSING ROLES

1. Stranger Role: Receives the client the same way one meets a stranger in other life situations; provides an accepting climate that builds trust. Accepting the patient objectively.

2. Resource Person Role: Answers questions, interprets clinical treatment data, gives information. Interpreting the medical plan to the patient.

3. Teaching Role: Gives instructions and provides training; involves analysis and synthesis of the learner's experience. Offering information and helping the patient to learn.

Peplau separates teaching into two categories : Instructional—which consists largely of giving information and is the form explained in educational literature. Experiential— which is using the experience of the learner as a basis from which learning products are developed.

4. Counseling Role: Helps client understand and integrate the meaning of current life circumstances; provides guidance and encouragement to make changes. Working with the patient on current problems.

5. Surrogate Role: Helps client clarify domains of dependence, interdependence, and independence and acts on client’s behalf as advocate. Figuratively standing in for a person in the patient's life.

6. Active Leadership Role: Helps client assume maximum responsibility for meeting treatment goals in a mutually satisfying way. Working with the patient democratically.



MAJOR ASSUMPTIONS

Peplau identifies two explicit assumptions :

1. The kind of person the nurse becomes makes a substantial difference in what each patient will learn as he receives nursing care.

2. Fostering personality development toward maturity is a function of nursing and nursing education. Nursing uses principles and methods that guide the process toward resolution of interpersonal problems.



NURSING METAPARADIGM

Nursing

Nursing described as a significant, therapeutic, interpersonal process.

Person

Peplau defines person in terms of man. Man is an organism that lives in an unstable equilibrium.

Health

Peplau defines health as a word symbol that implies forward movement of personality and other ongoing human processes in the direction of creative, constructive, productive, personal, and community living.

Environment

Peplau implicitly defines the environment in terms of existing forces outside the organism and in the context of culture, from which mores, customs, and beliefs are acquired.



Theoretical Assertions

Interpersonal Relations in Nursing

  • Patient-nurse relationship
  • Awareness of feelings
  • Use of experiential learning method

Logical Form

- empirical generalizations

- observes empirical events and generalizes from specific to all similar events

  3. The start of psychiatric nursing.
  4. Used for counseling women undergoing depression.

Psychodynamic nursing basically explain the nurse-patient relationship. I believe that not only the knowledge and skills that acquired from school will lead us and the measure to be a sucessful nurse but it is how we applied the knowledge we learned. I've really appreciate her theory because good communication is needed to strenghten relationship of the nurse and patient. We, as a nurse are expected to be not only a health provider but also a care provider with the therapeutic practice. Peplau's theory also teach us the stress management, on how to deal with people who have a lot of stress in life especially those who are sick. As a nursing student of the current generation, we have a big gratitude towards these theorists that we are thankful that they contribute a lot in nursing profession.

hildegard peplau is an achiever personality in the field of nursing profession..
she is a boyish like girl in her adolescence period. that's why she had not have a husband..
on the other hand, she formulate psychodynamic theory in nursing. according to her, nurses should be a counselor, teacher, stranger, leader or manager, surrogate, and resourcer of her patients....

Psychodynamic Nursing, the theory discovered by Hildeagard Peplau. Through this theory peplau focus on the nurse-patient relationship.

The psychodynamic nursing helps the nurses and nursing students to treat every other patient the care they need. Through this theory the nurses knows how to communicate to their patient. This theory helps nurses to give the care to the patient in all the aspects of life. This theory helps the nurse and the patient to share their life with each other from the day the patient admit to the hospital until the day the patient discharged.

For me, this theory will really guide nursing students to their clinical practice and I think without this theory nurses cannot take good care of their patients easily and has a big effect to the nursing profession today.

As I read this Journal, it helps me really understand what is Psychodynamic Nursing of Hildegard Peplau, I already know that it helps the Psychodynamic Nursing is a combination of Psychology because it emphasized on human behavior and human relationship, Psychiatry because it focuses on the study of mentally ill and Nursing because it is all about nurturing and caring the sick, it helps us to development our communication skills by having a proper Nurse Patient Interaction, and it has a systematic process where you can have a proper interaction with your patient, from orientation phase to resolution phase. This theory is so amazing because you can apply it daily. I wonder what will happen if this is not been conceptualized by Hildegard Peplau. If she is still with us today I really want to thank her, because she makes our work easier.

In this Theory of Hildegard Peplau its focus on The Psychodynamic Theory that can explain the interpersonal relationship between the patient and the nurse, it can also be apply in research, education and practice. It is very important to us because it is the theory that the nurse need to understand those patient behaviors. I can appreciate her theory because of our day to day living that I can meet and participate the different attitude of each person. If this theory was none, I cannot understand the different types of attitudes of every person.
Ma’am in this theory, I know it is important because no other process on how to make the attention of the patient focus from the nurses.I hopethis article help to me on how to become understandable person.God Bless po.

I believe that to become an effective nurse you should interact to your patient to give an appropriate cure to him. So Hildegard Peplau's Psychodynamic in Nursing which includes the nurse-patient interaction is very applicable in nursing practice nowadays. Like Environmental theory, Psychodynamic Nursing can easily understood because of its simplicity and being consistent. So the readers may easily understood the theory. I am truly amazed on her uncommon intellect. She conceptualized the four phases of relationship. The orientation, identification, exploitation and resolution. I like Peplau and her work very much. Without psychodynamic theory, there is no nurse-patient relationship. The nurses will spend a hard time in assessing their patients. Sometimes it may result in errors and complications to the patient.

Ms Peplau's Psychodynamic Nursing plays a big role in our field of profession. As a health care practitioner, we should be able to establish first the trust so it could be easy for us to understand our client's behavior and eventually to render the necessary services to our care recipient. Her theory teaches me to know my patient bit by bit to gain his trust to me and to emphatized the patient carefully.
Good day!,.,,hooooo!",)

..without Peplau's Psychodynamic theory, we will not know how to interact with other people especially in our course. The nurse-patient relationship. The interaction between the nurse and the patient is very important.Good communication is a great factor to have a good foundation of relationship of the nurse and the patient.Nurse-Patient relationship is very great help in the nursing practice.

Hildegard "Hilda" Peplau's theory the Psychodynamic Theory also known as the Interpersonal Relations Theory made a major impact in the nursing profession. In practice, this was the start of the psychiatric nursing and this strengthen the nurse-patient relationship. In education, this was the foundation of psychiatric nursing education. While in research, the formation of behavior scale and the therapeutic behavior of nurses.

This theory focuses on the patient-nurse relationship, awareness of feelings and the use of experiential learning method. This have the four phases, the orientation, where in the nurse and the patient's first meeting. The identification, this is the time when the patient identifies with the nurse. The exploitation, the nurse exploits the all the services that is available. And the resolution, which is the patient abandons all needs and aspire to new goals.

during the Prelim examination in TFN, i got several errors in the application of Nursing theorists because i had this confusion between Peplau and travelbee.
as i read this journal, i could say that certain things regarding my confusions were finally sttled out.

"ate hilda" has a vast extension of her self in the field of rendering nursing care. she is indeed the mother and pioneer of Psychiatric Nursing which, when we come to keenly think and give focus on it, will give us a general thought:

peplau's psychodynamic Nursing theory is one of the foundations for a nursing student to reach her goal towards the continuity and reality of her intervention.

after the enrollment, i couldn't control my urge to read the tomey-alligood book and so i had reached up to abdellah's pages. my understanding regarding peplau's theory is considerably a very minute in the nursing sense because i thought upon reading that this theory is only intended for the mentally-incapacitated ones. then, the octaviano-balita TFN book was given and again, i read and finished reading it. somehow, certain things on my perspectives have changed.

with this journal (and of course, with the TFN discussions) it is clearly-cited and emphasized that peplau, as a nursing theorist has managed to sum up and then expand in her own interventions the thoughts of other persons to be able to come up with this theory. really, this one is based on reality and i, myself, to my greatest surprise has been practicing this theory ever since i wgained my friends and socilize with other people. the power of the contagious smile agsinst the communicable stress and anxiety.
peplau, is not only the mother of this nursing thepry theory, because i think, she's also one of those who give birth to the upcoming generations of individuals who will render qualitative nursing care.

good morning ma'am,

When we tackle this theory, The Psychodynamic Nursing or The Interpersonal Relations in Nursing by Hildegard Peplau, I realized and learned that a nurse must be connected to his patient because this nurse-patient relation is a great factor in fast recovery of the patient. I find it easy for me because I can get along with different people with different personalities. As a nurse, he must know the physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and social being of a person not only the needs of the person. In my own point of view, a nurse must make his patient jolly. This is also one factor that affect the recovery of a patient. This theory is an important factor in the nursing profession to make you a successful nurse someday...

kathlealicas_bsn-1b said...

This article emphasizes the essence of interpersonal relationship between a nurse and a patient that has a great influence in the recovery of a patient. This Psychodynamic Nursing was one of my favorite theory because it is natural. Every nurse has a magic to help and cure the patient, and it is their own way of taking care of their patients, the nursing care. I learned that a nurse should always has a good mood and patience so that they can handle things in their own way.

The theory of Peplau Psychodynamic Nursing has a great relevance in the nursing education. with this theory we can develop one of the most important role or practice in nursing, the nurse-patient interaction. as a nurse we need to have confidence in facing our patients, so that we can interact with them easily. we have to be understanding and patient with them. and by giving our best care with them , we can gain the trust of our patients.

the work of Peplau was truly a great help in our nursing profession.

maymarie joyce g. calpe said...

Psychodynamic theory is very applicable. It helps me enhance my patience. It is very inportant for a nurse to understand the situation of the patient and he should communicate with his patient. The nurse should treat the patient right so the patient will feel comfortable and he will be able to be open with the nurse. he will not be afraid to tell the nurse what he is feeling.

Hi ma'am! thank you for applying this to us! thank you for being helpfu and for you patience to us. Thank you bacause you're trying your best just for us to understand our lessons.

Psycodynamic Nursing Theory is one of the most theory that a real nurse should know. The reason why I mention "real nurse" because now a days this profession is being abuse of some student who enrolled in this course. Many of them may reason out that they what to serve man but as a whole for those student, they enrolled in this course because they want to earn dollars. Nurse-patient-interaction are very essential in this field because this is the only thing that nurse and patient can understand each other.

To all BSN 1 gud luck to all of us. May we apply Ate Hilda's theory during our R.L.E.

It is applicable to all nurses in any setting.
We have different roles that we can use as a strategy to face those consequences in nurse-patient interaction.

michelle angeli p. uno said...

Unlike Nightingale's theory which focuses on the environment, because of her status, she lack one factor in attaining patient's recovery which is the nurse-patient relationship, while Peplau's theory focuses on this aspect.

For nurses to be successful, they should establish good relationship with their patient. And in establishing good realtionship, the nurse should pass the four phases of relationship according to the theory of Peplau.

Peplau's theory helped us how to handle and how to analyze different situations as we encounter different patient's personality. "We can never please everybody." But through this theory, we can help our patients in accepting the fact that their need to undergo certain medications in the hospital and help them relieve their sickness easily.

"Smiles are contagious", as coined by Ma'am Oloresisimo during our discussion, it really sticked on my mind that anger can really stress all the people around you, but we should not multiply this anger but instead, our smile should be given to each and everyone around us. We cannot give our patients the relieve that need in order for them not to feel the pain, so we should not give them the anger we had encounter later in the morning before we arrived on our duty but instead, we should provide them our beautiful smile so that the pain the feel will be relieved in less a period of time.

If Florence Nightingale’s theory emphasized on the environmental management that is important to patient’s recovery, Hildegard Peplau’s theory of nurse-patient relationship involves the stress management. This theory’s number one focus is to help the patient with his or her problem and help him or her to accept it in a good way and with a positive view of what will or what will be the effect of the solution.

We can pick out many benefits in this theory it include improving our social interaction, it practice the stress management and also we can apply it to anyone. This theory help me realize one of the important things that nurses should know to help her patient as well as his or her approach to the patient.

According to the journal and to my understanding,Peplau's Psychodynamic Theory was a very good theory. It's hard to communicate with a person who has a problem such as the insane ones. But Peplau could handle that kind of problem. The therapeutic relatioship was involve in her theory. And there are different phases that could help us (during our duty,etc). Those phases are Orientation Phase, Identification Phase, Exploitation Phase, and Resolution Phase. And base on what I have read and how I understand it, to have a very good relationship between the nurse and patient,first you must introduce your self to the patient and vice-versa. And in identification, trust was developed and the reletionship was starting to grow. In exploitation, manners of the patient was starting to change. And there are plans that was going to apply to have a best result of treatment. And in the resolution, the nurse lets the patient to become an independent. So when they separate from each other, there would be no difficulties. Having Peplau as a theorist in nursing field is a great honor because she's a very wonderful and intelligent person. She's really a "Psychiatric Nurse of the Century" like other people says.

Hildegard Peplau used the term, psychodynamic nursing, to describe the dynamic relationship between a nurse and a patient. Through this psychodynamic nursing, the nurses were able to share their life on their patient. Her theory was more on application rather than abstract. It is easy to understand and it gives us the idea that a nursing is not just like a profession but also a passion. This guides every nurse and the future nurses on how they will handle their patient from the very start up to the moment of their discharge.
Peplau described four phases of this relationship: orientation, in which the person and the nurse mutually identify the person's problem; identification, in which the person identifies with the nurse, thereby accepting help; exploitation, in which the person makes use of the nurse's help; and resolution, in which the person accepts new goals and frees herself or himself from the relationship.

Aloha!

Like the Environmental Theory formulated by Florence Nightingale, the Psychodynamic Theory by Hildegard Peplau can also be applied to our daily living.

For me, it is like a therapy, wherein it could be used in having serious conversations about the feelings, emotions, and insights of others.Like when a friend approach me wanting to give her some advice, I can help her by applying the Psychodynamic Theory

In nursing, a nurse must learn how to deal with other people-on his or her behaviors and attitudes.

hi ma'am...I can say that this blogspot gives us a lot of help in our study...aside that this journal showed us the essential facts about the nursing theorists (such Nightingale and Peplau)which inspired us a lot, it also develops our computer literacy...

I gained lots of learnings from here..it helped me in familiarizing such personalities which influenced the theorists such Sills,Stuart,Sundeen,Dicken and many more. And also,through this, I haved read and understand more the journey of Nightingale in the Scutari and how she solved the Crimean Fever and Varna Fever that attacked the soldiers there!This Journal reading also post other important details that we should know such as the 3 areas that influenced Nightingale, her Theoretical assertions, the analysis of her work,and even the weakness of her theory.

on Peplau's Work, I get more amazed on her after I read the journal about her. Like on Nightingale, I also learned a lot on her work. This blogsite posted new terms for me. Example, on Hildegard's nursing phases,this posted another term for the identification phase and the exploitation phase which is the "Working phase".

To summarize this class extension is a great aid for us to understand more our TFN subject. Thanks ma'am for striving to have this blogspot.We were very inspired and educated. I loved the film review you posted here in our blogsite. It taught us more about the life of Nightingale and Peplau..Now, we are more familiar about the course we are taking. Again, thanks ma'am...

 In my own idea, a person’s wellness cannot only be measured in his/her physical state but also in their emotional condition. Peplau’s Psychodynamic Theory helped a lot in the nursing profession. Thanks to Hildegard Elizabeth Peplau, because of her contributions to the nursing profession, we find it easy to interact with the patient because we can now understand their behavior. If there is a good interaction between the nurse and the patient this will help for the recovery of the patient.

Peplau's contribution in Nursing was a great help, because without her Psychodynamic Theory, nurses around the world cant help their patients in
their illness because their psychological connection to each other are not sufficient,making it difficult to the nurses to help their patients. But when Peplau's started to give ideas to the nursing practices, it helped a lot in giving care to the needy.

I firmly thank you mam for giving us opportunities for us to have a wider scope to the lessons you discuss..

PSYCHODYNAMIC NURSING...

It is the way to identify ones felt behavior, feelings and attitude and this is the field that hildegard peplau is popular of.

I really appreciate PHYCHODYNAMIC NURSING and its usefulness to nursing care because in this field we can communicate effectively with the patient or the interpersonal aspect of caring.

It is the interaction of the nurse to his patient.

Thanks Hildegard Peplau for contributing your knowledge and ideas that can add practice for our profession.

Hildegad Peplau's Pdychodynamic Theory for me is one of the greatest contribution a nursing theorist could give, people with mental illness are often taken forgranted in our community because it is hard to communicate with them and it seems hopeless to cure them.. giving her attention to the mentally illed people open the eyes of many other persons that these mentally illed people are not completely incapable, and communicating with them requires effort that are ordinary. Her "working with a smile" thought is also important, it reminds nurses and other people that smiling can be a major therapeutic act. And it is also important not to irritate other people bacause of out own problem.

Peplau's Psychodynamic Nursing whose main purpose is being able to understand one's own behavior to help others and apply the principles of human relations to the problems that arise was examined by Peplau after which the result of her work provided us much deeper and broader understanding of Psychiatric Nursing.

She introduced four phases in a nurse-patient relationship. These are orientation, identification, exploitation and resolution which really address therapeutic concern between a nurse and a patient.

Thus from these works, educators and nurse practioners nowadays all have clear focus on what to achieved as far as psychiatric nursing is concern.

Every one of us needs a person who will understand our problem or situation. In nursing practice Peplau’s Theory is very significant to everyone. In Interpersonal Relations in Nursing of Hildegard Peplau, I realized that nursing is not only a profession or a job but also devotion. Many students now choose nursing as a course for their stepping stone to go abroad and earn dollars, some of them didn’t perform their duty very well they only focus only on the high salary they get.

The therapeutic relationship is vital to nursing practice. The feeling of the patient will feel better if their needs are fulfilled or there is someone who can understand his predicament. We should analyze the feelings, emotions, and actions of the patient.

In Interpersonal Relations Theory, it helps us to cure not only physically but also mentally. Some patient doesn’t easily cure because of their mental problem. As a nurse we can help are patients by visiting them and support them that they can overcome what problem they have.

Psychodynamic nursing explains the relationship between the nurse and the patient. Proper caring will not workout if the patient didn't cooperate with the nurse.

The nurse must understand the behavior of the patient in order to know what's the patient's problem for her to help him. She stated that a nurse can be a stranger first, then a resource person, a teacher, a counselor and a leader. This theory will help in the develpoment of nursing care, a nurse can apply to her patient.

rhessiane roda said...

Interpersonal Relations Theory/ Psychodynamic theory which was establised by Hildegard Peplau also plays an important role through Nursing Profession. It contributes for a nice performance of a nurse to her patients,,vice versa.. This theory definitely gives emphasis towards the relationship between the nurse and the patient which is very necessary to promote a harmonious relationship of both parts. Having a warmth relations is much needed to assure the fast recovery and better life of a patient. In the other hand, the nurse can simply and easily rendered care to her patient with a complete and full effort of care.

This theory is also advantageous for every nurses and nursing students because it clearly identifies and helps to conquer their fears and stresses and it teaches the feeling of calmness for
every meetings with their patient.

Hello Ma'am,
The main concern of Peplau's Psychodynamic Nursing is to improve and develop the relationship of a nurse and patient and the interaction between them as part of providing health care.

Salutation!!!That's it,..
In my opinion I think Peplau's Psychonamic Nursing is the most well applied today in the Nusing profession because unlike Nightingale, she gave emphasize the factor which may help in the recovery of the patient,which is the well and nice interaction. Her unstoppable career also focuses on that prompting of nursing as a profession and for me it is very astonishing. In her work, she described the real essence of nursing by that the health care system should include the care of the nurses and its role as a nurse such as stranger, resource person, teacher, leader, surrogate and counsellor.

I was very very inspired on how Hildegard Peplau offered herself in her profession. Her passion extend upto 50 years in such improving and contributing to nursing knowledge. A real pioneer in her field.

I didn't know before that in nursing, there is such thing called "Phases of Nures-Patient Relationship." Honestly,before,I thought that once a nurse entered her patient's room, her only duty is to check his temp., his b.p., his dextrose. etc.But now, I learned that a nurse is more than that. She nurses, guides, and cares. One of her duties is to earn the trust of her patient and to earn it,she should learn those 'phases'. I think it will help alot!

Hildegard Peplau and her Psychodynamic Nursing is all about the relationship between the nurse and the patient. I believe that our knowledge and talents or skills are not the only thing that may lead us into victory but also a good personality or character and being such nice person to everybody also helps us to become a truly qualified nurse. Her theory made me realize the importance of behavior or how a nurse treats his/her patient. In her theory, also I recognize how to consider the mannerism of a person who is suffering in pain. The phases of relationship in her theory from the very first step to the last one must be done carefully, properly and successfully to avoid any conflicts or problems. Hildegard Peplau’s theory has a great contribution to the nursing profession and to our daily life as well.

Her theory "Psychodynamic Nursing" is a great help in nursing profession. It helps us understand the feelings of other people.Her concept nurse-patient relationship also caught my interest. as a nurse we should be provide them with therapeutic care that will enable them to recover as soon as possible. Her concept of "contagious smile" should always be applied on our practice. we must be approachable and kind to our client. these qualities somehow were forgotten by some nurses.
about the analysis of her theory. I can say that its simple and clear because w can easily understand the concept of her theory.
This theory will surely help me a lot with my profession.

Monique G. Oracion said...

Psychodynamic theory, focus more on the human behavior. In this theory, nurse-patient realtionship is important. Because for her it is important that the nurse knows his/her patient, and the patient must know his or her nurse. Communication plays a vital role in her theory. In the phases of her theory, the nurse should know or identify her client's problem. After that the patient should accept the help of the nurse, for them to have cooperation. Then after it, the nurse should make the patient accept that her care is only temporary. I appreciate her because, she really do understand the feelings of her patient. Because as a nurse, we must know the physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and social being of a person not only his/her needs for being a sick person. Medicines are not enough for a person to have his/her recovery. It's a nice feeling that you made your patient remember you for the rest of her life.

PSYCHODYNAMIC NURSING
by: Hildegard Peplau

Well, In my own opinion i think that Hildegard Peplau's theory is very useful because it discuss about the four phases of nurse-patient relationship 1) ORIENTATION - which is very important to make sure that you/ we can become part of our patients life.
2) IDENTIFICATION - after the orientation phase, when you are already somehow involved with the life of your patient it will be easy for you and your patient to interact because you will feel comfortable even if you are not related with each other personally, you would know how they feel and know their needs.
3) EXPLOITATION - in this phase both of you will have a relationship which moves from being dependent to being independent and there will be new goals to be achieved.
4) RESOLUTION - this final phase tells how the patient earns his independence after all the work that had been done by the nurse,and that the nurse-patient relationship would have a lasting impression.

but not only the 4 phases of nurse-patient relationship but also the roles of a nurse not only as a care giver who just give care and heal the patient physically but also emotionally, spiritually socially and psychologically because if it only end as a nurse and you didn't guide them thoroughly with their spiritual needs, your role as a NURSE will be incomplete and your patient will not be totally healed.

it is significant that we understand the roles and the phases that the nurse and the patient goes trough...


and in psychodynamic theory we can able to understand one’s own behavior to help others identify felt difficulties.

Within reading this article. . .

I learned that in nurse-patient relationship, both the nurse and the patient must have cooperation to one another in seeking the patient’s dependency to an independent nurse. That’s why there are four-phase phenomenon involved to effectively understand how to pass every single phase and achieve the very last phase in which a nurse must teach the patient to be independent on his own and let go.

“Nurse is not a nurse alone.”
I was confused before because I thought that nurses have same obligations when they were in duty in a hospital. I thought that the responsibilities of nurses were just reading the thermometer, injections, getting the blood pressure, and arranging the dextrox. But now, I know that there are different kinds of nurses with different roles in which it can be a stranger, resource person, teaching, counseling, surrogate, and active leadership role a nurse must acquire.

This Major Concepts and definitions of Psychodynamic Nursing or describe as the dynamic relationship between a nurse and a patient will help us in caring for the patients that will surely benefit them importantly the phases of NURSE-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP which is the Orientation in which the person and the nurse mutually identify the person's problem second, Identification in which the person identifies with the nurse, thereby accepting help, third ,Exploitation in which the person makes use of the nurse's help, and the last but not the least the Resolution in which the person accepts new goals and frees herself or himself from the relationship, which will encourage and promote the relationship of the nurse and the patient that will give the confidence of the patient to have fast recovery of his/ her health and also the roles in nursing which is also important to us like the Stranger Role, Resource Person Role, Teaching Role, Counseling Role, Surrogate Role, and also Active Leadership Role that will insure our therapeutic relationship wit the nurse and the patient and also will improve the health care guidelines of humanity.

The Psychodynamic Nursing really helped nurses in a way that the patient and the nurse will have the chance to relate with each other. In this theory, there is a sequence of procedures or process of how to interact with each other.
The nurse and the patient will be strangers at first and soon will know the needs of each other. The nurse must gain the trust of his/her patient and develop that trust for them to have a great relation. The nurse will be the one to teach and lead and the patient must cooperate with the interventions so that he/she will learn how to take care of him/herself. If the patient learned how to be independent, then that is the time to free him/herself from the interaction.
The theory also has a great contribution in education, research and practice. The theory really deserve to pass in simplicity, generality, empirical precision and derivable consequences because it is easy to understand, applicable to all nurses, factual, and it widened the perception of nursing.

She develops those things in order to help the nurses in their everyday life. This serves as a guide for the nurse to help and to understand our patient. I, as a student don’t want to be sad.

but because of this theory, i now know the right way to grab someone's trust.

step by step i am now beginning to understand the mystery behind NURSES and their ability to heal the wounded..

Psychodynamic Theory..

i really like this theory of Hildegard Peplau because of what she taught what really a nurse should do when she is on her duty. well, this theory shows that a nurse and a patient should have a interrelationship to each other so that they can help themselves to easily cure the illness of the patient that is suffering. these nurse-patient interrelationship is a factor that a nurse must consider. "working with a smile", this saying of Peplau is a inspirational one because i believe that when you smile to a person who is in pain, it can help to alleviate the pain he/she feels. It can help also to brighten a day for a person who is in bad mood,. just smile! You would really never know how many people you’ve help with just a simple smile in your face.. good day!

good afternoon mam1

after you had discussed peplau's theory i learned that she had been influenced by differnt people before she come up with this famous theory such as maslow, miller, pavlov, and sullivan. this theory taught us that understanding one's own behavior is to help others to overcome their difficulties and problems. as a nurse it is our primary responsibility to help our clients to surpass their disabilities physically, morally
, spiritually and emotionally.

in a nurse patient relationship,it undergoes different phases such as orientation phase where patient and nurse know and introduce each other.they start to build their trust and rapport then,identification phase will follow wherein identifying the problems are the main priority. expoitation phase-where implementation of plan care is evaluated.then, the patient aspires for new goals.

as a nurse, we act asa pcholological mother for all of our patients.

hildegard peplau's theory help a lot in the nursing practice. the nurse-patient interaction is being emphasized and given more importance. the nurse-patient relationship goes beyond the phases namely:
1. orientation- the phase when the nurse and the patient first meet and gives impression with each other.
2. identification- the phase when the nurse do the nursing intervention to the patient.
3. exploitation- the phase when the nurse and the patient is attaining their goals,
4. resolution- the phase when the patient will be discharge in the hospital and the administration of care are being cut.

peplau's psychodynamic nursing has a great contribution in the field of nursing. we all know that having good interrelationship with others will really help alot in associating with someone. we define this as dynamic relationship between a nurse and patient,and being able to understand one's own behavior.

in my daily life i can apply her theory even im just only starting right now my journey in the field of nursing,because there is such situation that i can use her theory, for example in our school in our home, and even in other places because it is really important that we have a good interaction to others so for that we can easily associate with them.
because it is true that we encounter strangers in our everyday life and we really dont know who they are so we should understand her owns behavior so for us to be easy to have a good relationship with them.

im so thankful that hildegard peplau built her theory because without it probably there is a psychotic nurses.

frelene_tabernilla said...

This theory is almost a perfect because it can really be applied in nursing theory and study, but this theory is really broad so I think although it being explained widely. It is hard to understand clearly. It did not pass the standard of clarity which is really needed in every theory as should be. Anyways, in spite of this weakness of the theory, I can say that this theory is still very useful.

We should always do our best..

The Psychodynamic Theory of Hildegard Elizabeth Peplau is really useful and applicable in all aspects of nursing profession.
It shows the importance of having a good interaction between the nurse and the patient, but in order to have this good interaction it is important to pass the four phases of relationship. I learned that the nurse must know how to interact with other people for it is her duty, but not because it is her obligation she must give her full concern to the patient in which she must consider the patient as a human who need care. I also learned the importance of working with a smile for it help the patient to lessen the pain he has encounter.
Thanks again to HILDA for her nurse-patient Relationship that is widely useful and really applicable.

Psychodynamic nursing of Hildegard Peplau describe the dynamic relationship between a nurse and a patient.This psychodynmic theory has greatly influenced the works of all nurses in these days.It help a lot to our modern studies of nursing specially us and other nursing students.

In generally speaking,Hildegard Peplau's contribution in nursing was a great help because without her theory nurses cannot help their patient in their illnesses especially those who has behavioral problem.Without her theory,nurses cannot interact to their patient effectively because it has the learnings on how to help the patient to cope to their problems.

Again,to Mrs.Danela Oloresisimo,a very warm appreciation to her another great lessons,about one of the greatest theorist,which is Hildegard Peplau to her contribution to nursing education.

Hildegard Peplau( Psychodynamic Nursing)
Peplau is the theorist who believed in the interpersonal relationship of a nurse with the patient . She believed that a person should not only act as a boss but instead have an equal relationship with its patient.
Psychodynamic Nursing
*Psychodynamic nursing describe the dynamic relationship between a nurse and a patient. It is being able to understand one’s own behavior to help others identify felt difficulties, and to apply principles of human relations to the problems that arise at all levels of experience.Peplau challenged psychiatric nursing to be successful in this kind of study and with the nurse-patient relationship.The engagement in evidence-based practice Being competence in information technology and lastly leadership in shifting the health care paradigm to community-based delivery.
According to her,their are different roles of nursing including stranger role. As a nurse first impression is always last. Meaning a nurse should be alert with her action , his/her introduction should already have a great impression to his/her patient and with that making a great relationship as well.Resource Person Role- is a role of nursing in which a nurse is an interpreter,
she/he answer questions for the patient to understand.Teaching Role
a nurse should give his patient exact and precise instruction for he/she to be more healthy.Counseling Role is also like resource person but the nurse further explain some questions and it mostly talk about the situation of the patient.Surrogate Roles, the nurse helps client clarify domains of dependence, interdependence, and independence meaning she /he help the patient to be independent with his life and for making his/her comfortable.Active Leadership Role,a nurse should have a democratic relationship with his/her patient , the nurse should be responsible enough to make his/her patient's goal to achieve.
Their are also 4 phases of inter personal relationship of a nurse.
Orientation- it's the identification of problem with the help of the nurse but in this phase still sometimes the patient still refuses help with the nurse. Identification - in which the person identifies with the nurse,meaning the patient accept the help of the nurse. Exploitation - in which the person make use of the nurse's help,this phase is the connection of a more strong bonding of the patient and nurse.Resolution - in which the nurse and his/her patient end their relationship cause the nurse frees his/her patient from their relationship as nurse-patient.
According to the NURSING METAPARADIGM:
Nurse- according to Peplau its a interpersonal relationship.
Environment-according to Peplau its the culture and the beliefs of the person.
Health- according to Peplau its the symbol of movement or the activity of a person.
Person-according to Peplau its the man.
According to Peplau theirs an Application and Importance of her Theory
PRACTICE- the use of interpersonal relationship and counseling.
EDUCATION-it give idea for psychiatric nursing to be made.
RESEARCH- new knowledge about interpersonal relationship and psychology is being discovered.
Analysis of the Theory
SIMPLICITY-Its easily understood.
GENERALITY-its applied to every environment and by every nurse.
EMPIRICAL PRECISION- its base on reality.
DERIVABLE CONSEQUENCES-It helps make the research broad.

Nowadays, a relationship exists everywhere... But for Hildegard Peplau, she focus on her theory about nurse-patient relationship, which is also known as the "therapeutic relationship. And as I observe, her theory really exists in every setting that is very significant aspect in the nursing profession, and the most essential part of the nursing care.

Through this, it builds trust, therefore forming a strong relationship between nurse and a patient.

In nurse-patient relationship, there are four phases that should be considered to accomplish their goals. Moreover, nurse may undertake different roles within the relationship to reach the satisfaction and growth.

I do believe that the purpose of relationship is not to have someone who might complete you but to have someone whom you might share your incompleteness with. Here, the nurse share and fulfill the patient's incompleteness while having learnings through their experiences.

Stress management really helps in our daily living... And although anxiety is contagious, smile is curable.

I believe that that a SMILE is such a simple gesture yet such a powerful weapon and instrument. It can touch hearts and even change lives. So I would say now that we should keep smiling! We might inspire someone with it...

Psychodynamic Nursing helps a lot in the nursing profession and even favorable for the patients. This theory has a great emphasis on the dynamic relation between nurse and the patients. For Peplau, the relation between the nurse and the patient is like a four-phase phenomenon which includes the orientation, identification, exploitation and resolution. This explains that in caring our patients, having a good communication with them will help us to have easier way of caring them and to identify also their emotional and mental needs not only their physical needs.

As a nurse, we have different and various roles to our patients. Roles that we need to accomplish so that our patients will achieve their wellness in the right time. We need to know that our patients need us while they are suffering from their illness. Because of that, we should implement the "Psychological Mothering". We should accept our patients whatever they are and we should sustain their needs in order for them to recover.

We can apply this theory on our respective professions because it is really effective. Thus, this theory elaborates the good thing about having a communication or a "professional relationship" on our patients during our duty...

Hildegard's Psychodynamic Nursing Theory helps a lot in the nurse-patient relationship. It is more on proper way of communicating with the patient in order to have a good relationship with each other. Also it helps in understanding the patient's emotional status and to be able to conquer it and have analysis upon one's behavior.

The Interpersonal relations theory is more about earning the trust of the patient and being confident with each other by knowing one another. Being able to give what is needed not only physically but also emotionally. Also a person has different well-beings that should be given concern of,which are the physical aspect,emotional aspect,mental aspect,spiritual and sociological aspect. A nurse must be able to interpret then analyze one's behavior, also to cure the patient not only focusing on the physical aspect.

jesssica w. veras said...

For Hildegart Peplau to create her nursing theory, she obtain and link the ideas from the mentioned psychologists that shape her nursing work. Peplau's Psychodynamic Nursing discusses not only the relation between the nurse and the patient but also how to understand one's own behavior to help others identify and solve their problem.
Peplau explain the Nurse-Patient Relationship. And for me it's just like a story. At first scene, they see and get to know each other until they became close and recognize each other needs. The patient needs the help of the nurse to recover while the nurse needs the cooperation of the patient. The nurse must/should give the patients needs like counselling, answering/clarifying the patient's question, teaching and others. Then at last, they need to separate, the stranger(patient) needs to continue his journey and aim a new goal after being too dependent at the time when the nurse accepted him with a warm welcome.
Peplau's major assumption describe the nurse itself when giving nursing care to each patient makes difference on what they will learn. For example, if the nurse was moody when he/she takes care of a patient, of course the possible effect of the nurse's behavior to the patient is that he/she will think that the nurse don't want to take care of him/her without knowing that the real reason of the nurse moodiness was not the one he thinks but other reason. So the nurse should give nursing care with a nice mood, smiling face, he/she should not bring her other problem to hospital during her work for him/her also to get the cooperation of the patient. Peplau's Theory is always applicable and should practice by the nurses, doctors, or other health workers to preserve the value of life of every patient they're taking care of.

as an achiever person in the field of nursing profession, hildegard peplau was described by others as "a woman of uncommon intellect".
she is also the first one to think about the effect of cognitive behavioral therapy, symbolic interactionsm, or reflecting common sense to the alleviation of the condition of the patients condition.
thus, nurse patient relationship is influental to the outcome of the patiet because with the help of the nurse the patient's problems are being harnessed in other ways...
her numerous studies serve as reference for most psychiatric nurses that made her the title-
"mother of psychiatric nursing"

Psychodynamic Nursing by Hildegard Peplau
It is really an influential to all under the nursing profession, why? because she believes that nurse and the patient must have their proper interaction with each other not only physically but also emotionally.
NURSE-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP
(Interpersonal Relations Theory)
Orientation - because of this we could know our individual problems and could help us how to have the proper interaction with each other.
Identification - the person identifies the nurse and could help them with their needs.
Exploitation - the person make use given by the nurse. The nurse function is by filling the needs of their patient
Resolution - the person can adjust themselves of their situation and could assist each of them individually without the need of the nurse. In short the patient mus stand on their own.
NURSING ROLES
1. Stranger Role: We all know that once the patient was on the hospital they frequently doesn't knew the professionals in the hospitals just for example the nurse.Even though they do not know the Nurse they should have the interaction with each other so the patient must have their trust to the nurse. So the nurse should interact to the patient kindly to have their trust to them.
2. Resource Person Role: If the patient has a question nurses should always have the answers and we must make sure that they could understand it.
3. Teaching Role: This is when the nurse could function as a teacher that they give instruction and people can learn from them not only because of the information they learn from educational literature but also in their experiences.
4. Counseling Role: This is when the nurse advises the patient of their problems.
5. Surrogate Role: This is when the patient because of the the nurse could have their own independence and could understand the difference of dependence,independence and interdependence.
6. Active Leadership Role: Helps the patient to responsible of their health and have a good interaction with the nurse.
NURSING METAPARADIGM
Nursing- it is the interpersonal relationship.
Person- with different characteristics and must have different interaction according to their behavior.
Health- Doesn't always focus on physical wellness of the person but also on mental wellness.
Environment- must respect each culture, customs and beliefs.
Application and Importance of the Theory
PRACTICE:this can have a positive effect to the nurse-patient relationship. Could help them understand each other much better.
EDUCATION: Could help the future nurses on how will they interact to different patients with different belief,culture,etc.
Analysis of the Theory
SIMPLICITY
We could understand it simple because this theory specifies the exact situation.
GENERALITY
All the Nurse can always apply this theory in different situation.
EMPIRICAL PRECISION
Shows the truths that many situations can undergo this theory.
DERIVABLE CONSEQUENCES
Makes the perception of the nursing process more wide. Could affect all of us

Psychodynamic Nursing, Hildegard Peplau's theory as I have noticed is actually about the Nurse-patient relationship and the trust given by the patient to the nurse.

TRUST is such a big word. it is not that easy to achieve. Nurses need to gain the trust of the patient for them to work harmoniously. nurses and patients need to have one same goal to work with and later on succeed through it.

Peplau's work is very helpful to us student nurses for we learn a lot of things that can be applied in our chosen profession.

Hildegard Peplau is one of my favorite theorist. I admire her because of her theory. I realized that communication is very important. It helps us to understand each others feelings. Her 4 phases help nurses to communicate well to their patients. She is right that nurses should introduce their self to the patients, because patients will trust you to take care of them if they know you.

And I think her theory is applicable to everybody. We all know that communication is one of the best thing to keep the clossness of each other.

Thanks Mrs. Oloresisimo for sharing her theory because of that I learned how to keep my communication to my friends and family..

"PSYCHODYNAMIC NURSING" introduced by Peplau is very important in the practice of the discipline that nursing leaders formulated.

Her theoretical ideas, particularly her views of nursing and nursing process, the psychodynamic theory and her prescribed methods, have been an essential part of the collective culture of the nursing profession.

Peplau influenced upcoming nursing leaders especially those in the graduate school in the field of Psychiatric Nursing.

Hildegard Peplau's theory is very useful in the nursing profession. She used the term, psychodynamic nursing, to describe the dynamic relationship between a nurse and a patient.

She described four phases of this relationship: orientation, in which the person and the nurse mutually identify the person's problem; identification, in which the person identifies with the nurse, thereby accepting help; exploitation, in which the person makes use of the nurse's help; and resolution, in which the person accepts new goals and frees herself or himself from the relationship.

Today Peplau's "Interpersonal Relations in Nursing" is recognized as the first nursing text with a theoretical perspective, laying the groundwork for psychiatric nursing as a specialty. Her book, translated into nine languages, has been universally integrated into nursing education and practices throughout the world.

Hildegard elizabeth peplau, the mother of psychiatric nursing. Like Nightingale contributed a lot to the nursing profession. Her theory teaches us how to deal w/ the patient. And it is really important for the nurse to know how to deal w/ the patient properly. The nurse helps the patient to accept her condition w/ the help psychodynamic nursing taught by Hilda!!

Every theorist have uniqueness, Peplau is more focus on the relationship of the patient to the nurse, unlike Nightingale who is more focus on the environment of the patients. Even though they are disimilar I think they have the same goal, w/c is to give knowledge to nurses and the nusing profession to be more progressive.

Psychodynamic Nursing of Hildegard peplau plays an important role in every persons life because we can apply this not only between a nurse and a patient and also to your members of the family who is suffering from a disease or to your friend that has a problem.

She said that we are not the only one who has the right to live in this world but also the mentally ill persons.

I learned how to have a good relationship with others, most specially to the patients. We need to know the different phases of Nurse-patient relationship.

I do believe that Hildegard Peplau can be considered as the rolew model of nurses nowadays. She fo cared about anybody eventhough she did not know him or her after all.

The Psychodynamic Theory of Peplau brought changes in nursing practice and also on the world's impression on people with mental disorders.This people also deserves caring and understanding because they are also humans which are only suffering from mental and emotional distress.This theory has passed an analysis which makes it more reliable in practice,education and research.I hope this theory would develop further and be elaborated by more of nurse practitioners.Because this theory is essential for the psychological aspects of nursing which was revealed by Peplau.

Hildegard Peplau's psychodynamic nursing is significant in the relationship of a nurse and a patient. One of the concepts in her theory is psychological mothering which, I think, is very helpful to patients. Because through this, the nurse can help the patients recover easily not just phisically but also emotionally. Her assumption is true that the attitude of the nurse greatly affects the patient and the nursing care he/she receives. Peplau started the psychiatric nursing that is important in the application in nursing practice and the mentally-illed persons are also benefited by her psychiatric nursing.

The work of Peplau is very much relevant to the profession I’m taking in. It gives a wide view on how nurses can help their patients through good relationship with them. I think it’s one of the best factors to help patient conquer their fears and frights.
Once you choose the nursing profession, each one should not only memorize the theories, facts as well as practices. But more importantly, they should know how to apply them to daily life situations. Most of all, they should not only give a portion of their life, but give even more than 100% of their abilities just to satisfy their patients and make them feel that life is worth living.
I just wish that I can develop my interpersonal skills so that someday, if I’m exercising my profession in the real world, I can easily respond to the needs of my patients.
GODSPEED!!!

Interpersonal Relationship Theory of Peplau means a lot to all the nurses. In this theory, she totally expalin the rules of nurses in her patient's life. aside from that she also push a lot of effort produce profficient and self realiant health professionals. her effort and excellent leaderships skills saved the American Nurses Association from the point of bankruptcy and moved the nursing profession towards scientific recognition and respectability. she also considered as one of the reknowned nursing leaders at her times because of her writings and research.

"Peplau proves that she is a good example to everyone."

This is such an interesting concept because it tells about the Nurse-Patient relationship. This allows us on how to interact with the patients well. She also conceptualized the orientation, identification, exploitation and resolution that made me realized that without these concepts, it may result errors to the patients. So nurses should be aware of the patient's behavior that can affect their situation. Nurses should also understand one's knowledge to attain our goal. and that's to gain a good relationship with our patients that may affect to their recovery.

Hildegard Peplau is an achiever personality in the field of nursing profession.The Interpersonal therapeutic Process is useful in helping psychiatric patients become receptive for therapy.
"Psychological Mothering" includes the following step:
-The patient is accepted unconditionally as a participant in a relationship that satisfies his needs.
-There is recognition of and response to the patients readiness for growth,as his initiative;
-Power in the relationships shifts to the patient,as the patient is able to delay gratification and to invest in goal achievement.
In the course of the nurse-patient relationship,the nurse assumes several roles(Role of the stranger,Role of the Resource Person,Teaching Role,Leadership Role,Surrogate Role,Counseling role) which empower and equip her in meeting the needs of the patient.
thank you mam!

Peplau's Interpersonal Relations Theory emphasized the nurse-patient relationship is greatly influential in the outcome condition of the patient. She also stated phases that will enable the nurse and patient to create a good relationship to each other, it will be a way for the nurse to implement the plan of care to the patient and lastly, help the patient to become independent. Accorrding to Peplau, there are roles of nurses that will help the patient in meeting his needs. Because of the theory of Peplau nurse-patient relationship is implemented in the nursing profession and it will made me realized that not only Nightingale marked the nursing profession but also Peplau and many more.

Peplau and her Psychodynamic Nursing was a great contribution to the nursing profession. It can be applied in our daily lives. This can help nurses or even nursing students like me to understand the uniqueness of every individual, their behavior in order for us to develop the ability to cope with them.


I agree with her that the nurse-patient interaction is important go have a good relationship with the patient which can help in solving problems especially when it is related with health. I also believe that therapeutic and verbal communications between individuals,especially in the case of a nurse and the recipient of her care, can really contribute in stress management, releasing of hidden emotions and fear.This can be a means of showing sympathy and care in a way that a patient can feel that they are loved.=)

As I read the article of Hildegard Peplau's Psychodynamic Nursing is the human behavior and the nurse-patient relationship that is very important and useful in nursing.

And it help the nurse how to communicate and how to have a good relationship to the patients.

Becoming aware of Psychodynamic nursing makes me realize that it is vital to my profession to learn how to react with people around me. I must know how interact with my patient in a manner that it will make them feel better. It is a therapeutic use of oneself.
Peplau’s identification of nursing roles is a guide for nurses. I learned the responsibility to my patients as a stranger at our first meeting, as their teacher, Leader, advocate, counselor and a resource person. It is a heavy duty but if a nurse is really committed to her profession then she could perform it well just like the one who thought of this theory.

Her theory gave a very important contribution on the world of nursing practice for it to complete.As a beginner,I understood and learned some of the knowledges from her theory.With the Interpersonal Relationship Theory,she testified that a nurses must have a sincere or wholehearted role for their patient.Through this,they can show a personal care not only as a nursing profession but as a good person for his/her fellowmen.It helps for the patients that even they have a severe illness,they still accept their conditions because of giving them hope and positive reactions regarding with their sickness.They could avoid sadness and self-pity.

Hildegard E. Peplau's concept in her theory are just right. This is very applicable and useful not just in nursing the patient but also in our relationship with other people. Nurses' roles and responsibilities are not just a helper of the doctor, take the blood pressure or give the medicine. Their role is to be in behalf of the patient,wherein the nurse reports the situation of the patient;serves as a councelor, where the nurse listens,give advices and encourage the patient; a teacher and a resource person that he/she explains the terms the patient can't understand and also gives information and instruction to help the patient learn;a leader wherein his/her responsibility should be done. And the 4 phases in nurse relationship:orientatin, identification, exploitation and resolution should be done. This is very useful to have a healthy nurse-patient relationship. And while that, nurses should help the patient to be independent by and by.
Her theory is really great,that the nurse learn to provide a quality nursing care...Good thing a person named Hildegard Peplau was born to improve nursing....:)

Yunno Par said...

Introducing Peplau’s theory resulted to establishment of different major concepts. An example of these concepts is the Nurse-Patient Relationship. Also, different phases with its own individual self were analyzed and for me, are very important in such a way that every word counts. Roles were also emphasized on what nurses can become in front of a patient. This was very helpful because nurses may be able to conceptualize and what nurses shall be with a patient especially during their first meeting. There were also assumptions that she assumed what kind of person a nurse becomes and how to do with the patient’s maturity excel. Criteria needed for it to become a nursing theory were all achieved so I believe Peplau’s theory is really good and easy to understand.

The Nurse-Patient Relationship of Hilda Elizabeth peplau is the interaction of the patient with the nurse. The nurse gives the need of the patient, and she helps the patient to her recovery.

She proposed four phases to have a good interaction with each other. First is the orientation, it happens when the nurse introduce her self, the second one is the identification where the patient accepted the nurse, and try to know more. Third is the exploitation phase, the nurse will encourage the patient in a good way to cooperate in the procedures. And the last one is the resolution wherein in the time that the patient is in a good situation, the nurse must end up the relationship she built with the patient as part of the phases.

The relationship is for everyone by smiling not giving stress to others will give you a strong relationship.

Her theory is very much understood in a way that there is the simplicity in her work, the empirical precision that tells that is had been into different studies,it is derivable consequence for it is applicable in may areas and it touches many lives, and it is general because it is a broad theory.

Hildegard Peplau has a great contributions in the field of Nursing. without her now we don't have the Nurse-patient-interaction where the patient can ask or tell to the assigned Nurse her condition,so the Nurse will know what care will she provide and to have an early recovery.

...for example in our daily living,if you have a problem, you find someone to talk to or to share your problem, so that he/she can give you an inspirational advice which can help you to find a solution in your problem.
this situation emphasizes the theory of Peplau,
Nurse-Patient-interaction, a therapeutic relationship with others.

In psychodynamic theory of Hildegard Peplau gave highlight to the relationship of the patient and the nurse .it is also said that a nurse most accept the patient whatever the patient is. That there will be no limitation at all in understanding the patient situation. And teach the patient to understand and to accept the illness. She gave importance to the communication.

A nurse must to not only concentrate to the cure of the body but also to the emotional, and spiritual being of the patient .It is also said that the nurse must identify what is the problem of the patient.

A patient must develop trust to the nurse. At the end of the phases the nurse must assist the patients to be independent .The theory is simple and easily to understand, and can be apply to any situation.
In her theory it is not only the knowledge we acquired in school which is important but also how the way the nurse will apply it.

We should admire everything about Hildegard Peplau. On how she gives importance to the nursing possession and on how she elaborate every details about psychiatric. She developed different phases that help the students to undergo on that phases to achieve their goals in caring a patient. I can also say that Psychodynamic nursing of Peplau is very inspiring. Especially to people like us, as a nursing students. It was inspiring in the sense that we as a nurses we should assure that we have a good relation or communication with our patient’s, to the physicians that we are helping on and also to the family of the patient that we are caring of. In this aspect the “Interpersonal relations in nursing” of Peplau enters, meaning “the communication of one person to another”, through this practice it will lead us in the promotion of better health care. I think everyone should know Peplau’s works, so we would find no difficulty in handling patients and understanding their feelings and emotions, and also to be encourage, because Peplau is a courageous woman, courageous in such a way that she left us a legacy of practical knowledge which is there is no any good or better university can teach us, to enable us survive and to continue develop about nursing. Peplau is one of the theorists that can be considered as EXCELLENT because of her big contribution in the field of nursing and also because of her different experiences. She really deserves to be called as the “Mother of Psychiatric Nursing”. And I, as nursing student I will always remember and apply her contribution to help me in my chosen profession.

I believe that we should apply those four phases in our upcoming duties.

Helps us to understand the in pain patients are in bad mood and the nurse should do her role to teach and help her to become healthy again. The nurse should follow the interpersonal relationship in order of the 4 phases: 1st, the orientation because nurse and patient are stranger to each other; 2nd the identification, for the nurse she needs to identify the patient problem; 3rd to help the patient; and 4th or last is the resolution in which the nurse and patient accepts new goals and frees herself or himself from the relationship.

The “Interpersonal Theory” is very applicable in all aspects in our everyday life. I can say that this theory should continue in giving us, nursing students and other medical profession a moral lesson and proper communication with different people. Hildegard Peplau is an intelligent theorist because she improves Nightingale’s theory. I was amazed when I learned her theory because I didn’t think that interaction is very important in nursing care. I said to myself “how careless I am.” I admire her so much and her life and contributions give me more knowledge on how to deal with different people through interaction. This will help us on how to be an effective nurse someday. I really understand her contributions in nursing and the lesson that I learned from her will challenge me to become a professional and useful nurse in the future. Her theory is easy to understand but difficult to look the weaknesses. You need to have an effective and intelligent mind to be able to deal patient’s attitude and to have a good interaction with it.
