Quotes of Note:

"How can people be helped through the practice of human science nursing? One idea is that health patterns can be changed through creative imaging. For example, nurses and others can invite persons struggling with changing to picture what it would be like to stay in their situation and, alternatively, how they would like to change it. As persons talk about the possibilities that they see for themselves and about their hopes and dreams, they can begin to plan to make them real. Health workers can also encourage persons to do creative journaling, story telling, painting, poetry writing etc. "
