Abstract

It is essential for respiratory therapists within health care settings to understand who and what they care about. Yet these issues are infrequently discussed in school of in in-service programs. The purposes of this article are (1) to identify different types of relationships that may exist in the therapists' personal and professional lives; (2) to analyze the caring feelings that may be stimulated as they interact with different relationships; (3) to describe behavior that emerges as a result of caring feelings; and (4) to explore steps that respiratory therapists may take in reaching congruence between their feelings and their behavior patterns.
