Integrality in Families with a Member Labeled Schizophrenic Problem: State institutions have vastly reduced their capacity to treat or offer asylum to those with severe mental illness, while community mental health services are over-burdened and under-funded. Families have often become primary caregivers and service providers for their mentally ill members. The use of families in a resource capacity is a major change of thinking in the role families play in mental illness. Not enough is known about what family life is like in families with a member diagnosed with schizophrenia. The purpose of this descriptive, exploratory study is to gain understanding of family life and functioning in families with a member labeled schizophrenic. Martha Rogers’s Science of Unitary Human Beings (SUHB) is the conceptual foundation upon which this proposal is based and guides the nursing perspective used. Rogers’s principle of integrality identifies nursing’s focus of attention as pattern and its manifestation. Butcher’s hermeneutic phenomenological Unitary Field Pattern Portrait Research Method (UFPP) will be used to identify and interpret family pattern profiles as manifestations of the underlying integrality of the person, family, and environment. The research question is: What are pattern profiles of families with members who are labeled schizophrenic? Data were collected from 14 individuals, six consumers and eight family members via audio taped interviews. Data synthesis is currently being done following the UFPP method. Determining family pattern profiles of families with a member diagnosed with schizophrenia may lead to increased understanding of families’ issues, needs, and concerns. Nursing services perceived as helpful in promoting optimal family life and functioning in families with a member with schizophrenia may also be identified and/or designed based on this increased understanding.
