WVU at Parkersburg is honored to host Dr. Betty Neuman, nursing theorist, for a lecture, "Neuman's Theory: Then and Now," at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 25, 2009, in the theatre.
The goal of Neuman's Theory is to provide a wholistic overview of the physiological, psychological, sociocultural, and developmental aspects of human beings. Faculty and students in the areas of health sciences and psychology will find this lecture particularly interesting. Neuman is an RN who received a BS in Nursing and a Masters in Mental Health, Public Health Consultation from UCLA, and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Pacific Western University. She developed the Neuman Systems Model in 1970 at the University of California, Los Angeles.
