    Preserving Integrity: Experiences of People with Mental Health Problems Living in Their Own Home in a New Neighbourhood.Arild Granerud & Elisabeth Severinsson - 2003 - Nursing Ethics 10 (6):602-613.

The aim of this study was to gain a deeper understanding of how people with mental health problems experience living in an apartment of their own. The data collection method was focus group interviews. The constant comparative method revealed the main category (...)

    Confirmation, Meaning and Self-Awareness as Core Concepts of the Nursing Supervision Model.Elisabeth I. Severinsson - 2001 - Nursing Ethics 8 (1):36-44.

The aim of this article is to describe and discuss such a nursing supervision model, as well as the supervisor’s competence and moral responsibility, by analysing the interpretation of nursing supervision. Three main concepts are described: confirmation, meaning and self-awareness. The findings suggest that these concepts need to be established (...)
