Human-environment process: a test of Rogers' principle of integrality
Journal/Book: ANS Adv Nurs Sci. 1986; 9: 21-8.
Abstract: Rogers' principle of integrality was examined through testing the hypothesis that healthy subjects who are confined to bed in a varied harmonic environment will perceive themselves to be more rested than those subjects confined to bed in quiet ambient environment. A two-group pretest-posttest design was used to gather data to test the hypothesis. The findings of the study revealed that the hypothesis was supported beyond the 0.05 level of significance. The integrity of the mutual human-environment field process was strengthened with an environment of varied harmonic sounds.
