Integrating complexity science concepts into the examination of L.R.’s transition process presents a new angle to study this transition and speculate patient outcome (Geary & Schumacher, 2012). Part of L.S.’s self-organization of new patterns that have emerged through this transition is his desire to “get his life on track”. His delusion of being a veteran and having served in the military is part of his sense-making to explain his current transition. He is using what he knows from his plan to enlist in the military, prior to the car-accident that caused his TBI, to explain what has led him to this transition, how it happened, and why he is heading to Bridgeview. This self-organization is having a positive reaction and impact on his…show more content…
In this way, he is giving meaning to the reasons for medications and any other schizoaffective treatments he receives. This is an attempt to find patterns in the events of our life and assign meaning to them (Geary & Schumacher, 2012).
According to Geary & Schumacher (2012), emergence cannot be predicted. Therefore, we can only speculate how the emergence of new patterns of behaviors is going to develop as this transition unfolds. This transition is a change in environment and autonomy and as he interacts and self-organizes in response to these changes. It is unpredictable to know how his new behaviors are going to emerge, but the overall speculation is that a positive pattern of behaviors will emerge based on his fixed delusion of military discharge. This is based on many interactions and conversations with L.R. while at 1NW and during his discharge. L.R. is experiencing many complex changes in the transition from 1NW to Bridgeview. Prior to this transition, the emergence of the types of patterns of behaviors and physical symptoms of this new level of autonomy were evaluated. It is speculated that this complete contextual change will likely result in positive changes due availability of support and supplies at Bridgeview listed in Part A. It is speculated that positive behaviors will emerge due to client-centered care at Bridgeview and their ability to meet him at his level of need. The emergence of the behaviors as he
