Example text

However, if holism means that all have equitable value within a community, then how can nursing ethics be different from general ethics? For example, given that nursing is something which is done by the population at large, there is a need to define professional practice separately from lay nursing. But how to do this given that nursing is an activity which violently resists definition? Is it for instance the possession of skills which differentiates these groups? Hardly, The whole truth? 25 since it is undoubtedly true that considerable skill attends much of what counts as lay nursing and in any case claims to holistic practice rest on a denial of the primacy of medically skilled interventions with patients.

However it is plainly a departure from psychoanalysis where the therapist is a kind of fountainhead of wisdom, power and so on. With Rogers, all of these elements are shared or owned by both client and counsellor. Such a concept of sharing Carl’s world 35 can lead to misunderstanding. For example, what happens if the counsellor simply off-loads negative feelings on to the client? What if he (genuinely) blurts out that he hates the client? Apparently, this is not what being genuine means. What it actually means is that the counsellor gets in touch with his feelings in the sense that he does not deny to awareness those aspects of them which are uncomfortable.

Informal inquiry A scientific approach alternatively examines the way in which some parts of an organism or entity can effect either itself or things outside itself. For example it will confidently assert the primacy of physical signs over and above whatever symptoms a patient may volunteer. Such analytic inquiries have their informal counterparts in how we solve our daily problems. Generally we achieve knowledge by applying, however haphazardly, rational principles to our experiences and in this way we are able to apply categories to what we observe, for example we objectify our perceptions such that we see a hard pillow or a red dress rather than redness or hardness per se.
