ORDER NOW FOR AN ORIGINAL PAPER:Assignment: Interpretation of Reality

The experience of pain transcends the

physical body and requires a theory-driven,

tailored, whole-person approach to ensure

all effects of the pain experience on and in

the person; body, mind, and spirit are

addressed. The theory of integral nursing is

a composite theory developed by Barbara

Dossey in 2008 and built largely on the

work of Wilber (2000), whose integral

theory outlined the four dimensions of all

that is and represent what Wilbur believed

to be the true realities of life. Wilber posited

that understanding of these four dimensions

influences a person’s interpretation of reality

A secondary purpose is to

stimulate scholarly interest in designing

studies that test the theory’s concepts and

the richness and complexity of the theory

is a longitudinal process that begins with

unpacking each of the theory’s main

concepts and developing ways to apply

the concepts in clinical practice.


The central concept in the theory

of integral nursing is healing and is

conceptualized as a process that includes

“knowing, doing, and being” (Dossey &

journey toward increasing personal

harmony, harmony that is conveyed to

clients through caring actions and integral
