Identify an area of practice where change theory may find applicability. Provide examples to support your answer. Comment on the inherent weaknesses in change theory that may impact real life situations or give rise to difficulties in the process of applying this theory.

MODEL ANSWER 

The Change Theory of Nursing was developed by Kurt Lewin, who is considered the father of social psychology. This theory is his most influential theory. He theorized a …………..PLACE ORDER FOR COMPLETE AND CUSTOMIZED ANSWER.…………………… of change known as unfreezing-change-refreeze model that requires prior learning to be rejected and replaced.

Lewin’s definition of behavior in this model is “a dynamic balance of forces working in opposing directions.” The Change Theory has three major concep……..PLACE ORDER FOR COMPLETE AND CUSTOMIZED ANSWER.……..riving forces are those that push in a direction that causes change to occur. They facilitate change because they push the patient in a desired direction. They cause a shift in the equilibrium towards change. Restraining forces are those forces that counter the driving forces. They hinder change because they push the patient in the opposite direction. They ca………..PLACE ORDER FOR COMPLETE AND CUSTOMIZED ANSWER.…………….. in the equilibrium that opposes change. Equilibrium is a state of being where driving forces equal restraining forces, and no change occurs. It can be raised or lowered by changes that occur between the driving and restraining forces.
There are th…………..PLACE ORDER FOR COMPLETE AND CUSTOMIZED ANSWER.…………………….in this nursing theory: unfreezing, change, and refreezing.  Unfreezing is the process which involves finding a method of making it possible for people to let go of an old pattern that was somehow counterproductive. It is necessary to overcome the strains of individual resistance and group conformity. There are three methods that can lead to the achievement of unfreezing. The first is to increase the driving…………..PLACE ORDER FOR COMPLETE AND CUSTOMIZED ANSWER.………………………ehavior away from the existing situation or status quo. Second, decrease the restraining forces that negatively affect the movement from the existing equilibrium. Thirdly, finding a combination of the first two methods.
