  • a dynamic composite of the interrelationship of five variables: (1.) physiological, (2.) psychological, (3.) sociocultural, (4.) developmental, and (5.) spiritual
  • has protective mechanisms for the basic structure, and maintains client’s system stability: (1.) flexible line of defense, (2.) normal line of defense, and (3.) lines of resistance
