Hope: An International Human Becoming Perspective

Front Cover
Jones & Bartlett Learning, 1999 - Medical - 303 pages
The goal of this book is to provide the reader with the research findings from international qualitative human science studies on hope conducted in nine countries, including Australia, Canada, Finland, Italy, Japan, Sweden, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. All studies were guided by the human becoming theory and were conducted using the Parse research methodology. The findings from these qualitative research studies enhance the knowledge base on the phenomenon of hope, shed new light on its meaning, and expand understanding of the human becoming theory.
This book is written for faculty, graduate and undergraduate students in nursing and other disciplines who wish to enhance their understanding of hope as a humanly lived experience of health and quality of life.
