Based on course readings, resources, and discussions, create your own theory based on your specific practice area. For example, Liken's Theory of Nurse/Patient Connectedness for Individuals with a Diagnosis of Depression.
Be sure to include definitions and descriptions of at least two key concepts that make up your theory. Describe the relationships between these concepts. For example "connectedness" and "depression."
What role does research play in the development and use of your theory in practice?
Give a case example of how your concepts and theories would be used in a specific client situation in practice. What are the barriers to using your theory in practice?
