While studying Carpenito, I came across this diagnosis. It's pretty cool, and I wonder if anyone here has actually used it as a diagnosis. According to Carpenito, it represents a specific theory--human energy field theory--and the interventions used require specialized instruction and supervised practice. Also, in order to diagnose it, one must have thirty hours instruction in theory and practice, thirty hours of supervised practice with healthy individuals, and have completed written and practice exams. (I'm assuming that are specific to the energy field theory)
What intriques me are the interventions used. theraperutic touch in this case sounds alot like the practice of reiki. Are there any reiki Masters in here? Anyone who has ever had reiki performed on them? What are your thoughts on this? I had reiki run on me once and I admit, I actually thought clearer for a few weeks afterwards. Unfortunately,I was too busy to follow up.
Also, anyone have any thoughts on the liklihood that this is a future branch of nursing that is likely to expand as alternative med does?
Just thought this would be a fun topic to explore.
