RODERO-SANCHEZ, Virtudes; ACEBEDO-URDIALES, Sagrario; VIVES-RELATS, Carmen  and  PEREZ-GURREA, Carmen. The analysis of the possibles through Parse's theory on a person with Alzheimer. Index Enferm [online]. 2006, vol.15, n.54, pp.44-47. ISSN 1699-5988.

When a person comes to the Health Care System with a health problem will often be asked to change some of his habits and lifestyles. This demand becomes a compromise-pact between the person and the professional. We have observed that in this compromise-pact, despite the effort of the professional to hide it behind realist targets, the patient usually becomes frustrated, especially in cases of chronic illnesses. Parse's theory offers us a different way to approach the change. In Parse's theory, The Human Becoming,  the possibles are the expression of power, understood as a unique way of transformation, consisting in advancing with the hopes, desires and projects of a person. We suggest, first of all, an analysis of the elements that Parse calls her third principle: co-transcendence with the possibles; secondly, the analysis of the possibles from the basis of this reference framework through a narration and, finally, the nursing practice.
