Nature of Human Life and Subject Matter of Nursing

Answer the following questions in regards to Jean Watson

1) Discuss Watson’s view of the body and soul.

2) In the reading, Nature of Human Life and Subject Matter of Nursing and in particular the quotation of Jung ( 1068, p.99), comment on whether you agree or disagree with the statement; …people…” have not the slightest faith that anything useful could ever come out of their own soul”

3) After reading and reflecting on the 10 Caritas Processes that can cultivate caring moments or caring occasions, select “one” of the Caritas Processes that you feel is most important or resonates with you in cultivating caring.

The word “Caritas” is Latin. It means cherish, appreciate, and give special or loving attention with charity, compassion, and generosity of spirit. Caritas is very fine and precious, and must be actively cultivated to be sustained (Watson, 2008).

Over the years, Watson has developed and refined 10 Caritas Processes to guide nurses and others in applying her theoretical constructs, and cultivating caring moments and caring occasions in their own professional practices. They may also be used to form philosophical and professional practice foundations at broader levels in clinical and academic settings. The list of 10 Caritas Processes presented here will form the basis of study for the remainder of this book. They will be addressed in more detail in subsequent chapters:

  1. Sustaining humanistic-altruistic values by practice of loving kindness, compassion, and equanimity with self/others.
  2. Being authentically present, enabling faith/hope/belief system; honoring subjective inner, life-world of self/others.
  3. Being sensitive to self and others by cultivating own spiritual practices; beyond ego-self to transpersonal presence.
  4. Developing and sustaining loving, trusting–caring relationships.
  5. Allowing for expression of positive and negative feelings – authentically listening to another person’s story.
  6. Creatively problem-solving-“solution-seeking” through caring process; full use of self and artistry of caring-healing practices via use of all ways of knowing/being/doing/ becoming.
  7. Engaging in transpersonal teaching and learning within context of caring relationship; staying within other’s frame of reference – shift toward coaching model for expanded health/wellness.
  8. Creating a healing environment at all levels; subtle environment for energetic authentic caring presence.
  9. Reverentially assisting with basic needs as sacred acts, touching mindbodyspirit of

other; sustaining human dignity.

  1. Opening to spiritual, mystery, unknowns – allowing for miracles (
