In the traditional Nurse–Patient Relationship there are three phases:
Introductory phase: “Getting to know you”
Begins the development of trust
Four tasks of the orientation phase
Trust enables participation in the relationship
Each other as individuals
Identification of major problems and needs

Nurse and patient tackle tasks outlined in Phase 1.
Patients may exhibit alternating periods of intense effort and periods of resistance to change.
Regression is an ego defense mechanism that occurs as a reaction to stress.
Regression often precedes positive change.
