The life process of all persons involves a continuous interchange between the internal and external environments. It is characterized by input-interaction-output phenomena in consistent, often cyclic or repetitive, patterns of behavior. Both mankind and his environment are dynamic energy fields. Unity between them is evidenced by pattern and organization within their reciprocal relationship. Under stressful circumstances, the individual will favor behavioral reactions that have been helpful in crises in the past. There is a specific pattern to the entire process of disorganizations to reorganization through the resolution of the crisis (Aguilera and Messick 1974). Behavior of the human organization when faced with the problem of cancer is an example of the result of a force in the human field that is great enough to alter the speed of change in the life process of the patient.
