Concepts of Rogers model

1.Energy field- fundamental unit of both the living and nonliving
This energy field "provide a way to perceive people and environment as irreducible wholes"
The energy fields continuously varies in intensity, density, and extent.

2. Openness- The human field and the environmental field are constantly exchanging their energy
There are no boundaries or barrier that inhibit energy flow between fields

3. Pattern- Pattern is defined as the distinguishing characteristic of an energy field perceived as a single
waves-- "pattern is an abstraction and it gives identity to the field"

4. Pan dimensionality-- Pan dimensionality is defined as "non linear domain without spatial or temporal
attributes"// The parameters that human use in language to describe events are arbitrary.// The present is
relative, there is no temporal ordering of lives.
