Chapter 23: Pamela Reed’s Theory of Self-Transcendence
Reed’s self-transcendence theory. Pamela Reed defines this concept as the expansion of the self-conceptual boundaries in a three-dimensional way. According to this theory, people can be seen as open systems and the only obstacle between them, and self-transcendence is the boundaries they set for themselves.

Chapter 24: Patricia Liehr and Mary Jane Smith’s Story Theory
Story Theory is a middle-range theory put forward by Mary Jane Smith and Patricia Liehr in 1999. They believe that stories are an essential part of nursing practice. They believe that stories are just as important to diagnose and treat as the physiologic bodily responses of the patient. Patricia Liehr and Mary Jane Smith were middle range theorists who developed the story theory. The duo team believed that story telling had the potential to aid in the healing process of patients. The story theory is believed to be life experiences that connect people and time, which is expressed through who people are, where they have been, and where they will be going in life. Applied through qualitative research, this theory serves its purpose by guiding nursing practice and research by inheriting stories and health experiences that is important in process of healing for nurses and their patients. An assumption of this theory includes how experiences of the past and future affect the present moment, also known as the here and now.
