1 Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs NEEDS: a lack of something required or desired. *Needs motivate us to act!

2 Maslow defined a Hierarchy of Human Needs that stated the lower needs must be met before an individual can strive to meet the higher needs.

3 Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

4 PHYSIOLOGICAL-necessary for life; unmet, these needs lead to death  Food  Water  Oxygen  Sleep  Protection from extreme temperatures  Elimination  Sensory needs  Motor needs

5 SAFETY/SECURITY  The need to be free from anxiety and fear  The need to be secure in the environment  The need for order and routine

6 LOVE AND AFFECTION  Social acceptance, friendship, to be loved  Need to belong, to relate to others  Sexuality -a person’s feelings/attitude toward their masculine/feminine nature  Sexuality -the ability to give and receive love and affection -reproductive capabilities

7 ESTEEM  Feeling important and worthwhile – includes respect, approval, appreciation  We engage in activities that bring achievement, success, and recognition  We gain self-confidence and begin to direct our actions toward becoming what we WANT to be

8 SELF-ACTUALIZATION  Self-realization; obtaining our full potential; becoming confident, eager to express our beliefs, and willing to reach out to others to help them

9 To meet our human needs  We usually learn what works by trial-and-error  Direct methods v. Indirect methods  Stress reactions  Challenges and responsibilities

10 DIRECT METHODS  Hard work  Setting realistic goals  Cooperating with others  Evaluating effectively

11 INDIRECT METHODS Defense Mechanisms.  Projection- placing the blame on someone else rather than accepting responsibility. Inadequate or hostile feelings onto others  Denial – disbelief of an event or idea that is too frightening for a person to cope. Unconscious mechanisms.  Rationalization – using a reasonable excuse or acceptable explanation to avoid the real reason.  Compensation – substitution of one goal for another goal.

12 INDIRECT METHODS Defense Mechanisms.  Repression- involves the transfer of unacceptable or painful feelings or thoughts into the unconscious mind.  Withdrawal- there are two main types. Individuals can either cease to communicate or remove themselves physically from a situation.  Intellectualization- Use of an academic type of explanation to separate personal feelings from a painful event.

13 When defense mechanisms are inadequate, stress reactions develop:  Chronic complaining and demanding behavior  Agitation with manipulative behavior  Restlessness  Sleeplessness  Depression-be alert for potential suicide  Withdrawal

14 To meet the needs of others… Personalized healthcare focuses on the patient and meeting their needs and expectations

15 Challenges  Meet the patient’s needs to the best of your ability  Set standards of excellence for yourself  Sometimes only you will know (I.e., sterile field)  Let your conscience be your guide  Anything less than 100% is not acceptable

16 Responsibilities  Take advantage of the opportunity to learn, develop basic skills, see the purpose of each assignment  Set your standards for your performance  Establish study habits that work best for you  Relate learning to past experience  Measure each achievement in terms of progress toward your career goal  Be honest with yourself and take responsibility for your own actions
